6:02 am
rhetoric which many people argue got him elected as president of the united states i will own was put america first but from putting national interests first the speech quickly moved to a globalist agenda with a list of condemnations of other governments rogue regimes represented in this body not only support terrorists but threaten other nations and their own people with the most destructive weapons known to humanity trump last out of the syrian government reiterating claims that damascus has used chemical weapons the actions of the criminal regime of bashar. including the use of chemical weapons against his own citizens even innocent children shock the conscience of every decent person trump threaten to destroy in north korea prompting a walkout from the country's ambassador the united states has great strength and
6:03 am
patients but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea and then trump lashed out at iran branding the country a rogue state it is time for the entire world to join us in demanding the veterans government and its pursuit of death and destruction donald trump speech ended up being a sort of call for countries around the world to confront those who quote threaten us with chaos turmoil and terror namely three countries iran syria and north korea two of which were named as the axis of evil by previous us president george w. bush but we know their true nature. north korea is a regime arming with missiles and weapons of mass destruction. while starving its citizens. iran aggressively pursue these weapons and exports terror while an unelected few repressed the iranian people's hope for freedom so much for trumps

coworkers with god the almighty god who made us all. as our correspondent mentioned earlier trungpa lashed out at north korea syria and iran in his address to iran's foreign minister has already acted branding trumps remarks shameless and ignorant despite iran's compliance with the nuclear nonproliferation deal signed into n.t. fifteen washington has been escalating tensions with the country the trumpet ministration views the deal as unfair and in july announced new sanctions against iran just a week later congress passed a bill to impose fresh sanctions against the country washington's ally president maicon of france has nonetheless defended the deal from the same podium where trump lashed out at iran. i would like to defend the nuclear agreement with iran are engaged went on nonproliferation allowed us to work out on the fourteenth
6:06 am
of july two thousand and fifteen a solid robust and verifiable agreement that enables us to ensure that iran does not obtain nuclear weapons renouncing it would be a great era this could apply to north korea to immediately dialogue control multilateralism these are the official weapons this is the only way forward however u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson said washington needs its european allies to make the case to iran that the deal has to be quote revisited this is how it rains have reacted to translate his harsh remarks about their country. the un says iran is complying with the green light all european countries and russia see this saying the only country that claims otherwise is the us our people need to stand together giving in to america would achieve nothing it would make matters worse than they are now. we are not afraid and we have never been since the beginning. we have been under sanctions for four decades and the people of iran are certainly
6:07 am
not afraid now in fact sanctions have made iran more independent in many fields. we discussed the potential consequences of washington's pressure on iran with former cia officer jack rice as well as bass political analysts. unfortunately we have to realize it's the p five plus one everybody agreed not just the brits and the french the russians the chinese the americans if we pull out of this it's the entire world will be looking at the united states i agree that there are limitations and problems in fact you could expand upon this and it needs to be but to walk away from this deal in itself would be a huge error at this point. has many components of power including its nuclear industry missile power and regional prisons and military clout and influence in the region what they mean in washington is to wear off these components of power once they do so iran would be
6:08 am
a very easy target like iraq at the time of saddam hussein and would mean. fundamental violation of the nuclear deal and iranian officials including the you really need a supremely there or they have all warned that iran would give them a very tough response in another development the top diplomats of russia and the u.s. also met in new york to discuss global conflicts and the ongoing dispute between the two countries following the meeting russian foreign minister sergey lavrov commented on the state of bilateral relations and who he thinks prompted the tit for tat actions. good response to bubba stewart. lucia sort of there a difficult and very low point. which is the legacy of the obama administration. serious people responsible people. is one of them.

welcome back to the program internet companies in friday's are criticizing a u.s. bill designed to tackle online sex trafficking if approved it would allow legal action against the platforms and services that host illicit content tech firms warn it's a step towards undermining free speech online but critics point out the corporations seem to have no such concerns when it comes to deleting fake news and hate speech altie samir khan explains. silicon valley and congress are now clashing over the issue of online human trafficking u.s. lawmakers have proposed a new bill that would make websites liable for prosecution if they fail to combat the problem internet giants such as google facebook and twitter have opposed the bill saying it would undermine free speech the bill also jeopardizes bedrock principles of a free nope an internet with serious economy can speech implications well beyond its intended school the mother of a deceased victim of human trafficking sees this issue quite differently my name is yvonne ambrose. mother of two plates.

interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speak of any information provided by another information content provider now tech giants still want to change the law and don't want to take responsibility either but when it comes to limiting speech however they are more than ready to take responsibility our system relies on people in the community being able to reach out and tell us what they think is offensive and then we stuff teams of people hundreds of people around the world to be able to go look into those claims and follow the guidelines to take down the content. that we still is hate speech area according to those also use last year facebook twitter microsoft and you tube announced a code of conduct pledging to remove online hate speech within twenty four hours google and facebook launch a fact checking algorithm that labels news as fake if it fails to pass an independent audit and in august you tube a candy monetizing videos that they deem extremist it seems as if these i.t. giants have no problem restricting user content themselves but quickly draw

a line when the government tries to do so now is this a picket. choose approach or are tech giants correct in trying to prevent government censorship even if they're guilty of censoring content themselves samir khan r. t. washington d.c. . tech giants claim the broad language of the bill would make it counterproductive and lead to the suppression of free speech but political satirist army harwood's believes the fear is a purely motivated three concerns about profits. there's a group think among all these high tech companies and there are certain political ideologies mainstream ideologies which which are for a bit and almost sometimes on their website they're trying to make sure that their political perspective is the one that's dominant on their platforms and that all of their ideologies other ideas other thoughts are really trying to be shunted to the side and it's quite scary what that means to our democracy this is all about liability this is all about being protected from lawsuits these big i.t.
6:22 am
companies don't want so old creepy guy name ronnie you know going about his dirty business and then being sued because of it because the post something on facebook or you tube would have you but this whole argument is all about money and avoid being sued so that's really what at the heart of this issue here. two hundred seventeen people confirmed massive earthquake hit central mexico the epicenter of the seven point one quake was in the state of some eighty miles southeast of mexico city tram is leading to tragedies some distance away from the epicenter twenty children died in the capital when a primary school collapsed survive is an emergency because it joining forces to try and save people trapped under rubble.

6:29 am
this. the tiny city of newburgh new york is trying to come to grips with the deaths of three young children who died when their mother drove them into the hudson river among the victims are two year old lance peer and his a loving month old sister. we should take nothing for granted not our loves nor our lives our families or friends even a sanity one minute all is well the next we're plunged into darkness unable to process what is real and what is mercury's. autumn stringin realized this old too young was the summer after i turned eight she should not be alone and she knows it was the moment. that shattered trust. you know how do you know how to trust anybody after that. forced to confront
6:30 am
a mystery beyond comprehension she spent decades haunted in search of answers in pursuit of peace when something like killing all six of her children. made sense enough to put the kids in the bronco and drive into the river i see it. gravels it again water flying and kids screaming and somehow she managed to dig it up to back out of that. and that's an incredible victory for somebody in that state of mind you know there are other mothers. autumn's mom did eventually die by suicide alone on a country tony steph and was now widowed with a. children. i'm laying in bed at night in my room. listening to a houseful of morning. just shattered the whole family just shattered the children shattered me it has become so commonplace these irrational acts and horrific deeds
6:31 am
that we've almost become numb to it we've seen them in schools and public spaces in homes and churches. all over the news try as we might to understand them we can't try as we might to ignore them they call to us still we call the paramedics. they tried the roughly the reviver. outside their mouth to mouth resuscitation but . it was cold it's two thousand and four and he downing's world has just been shattered his daughter a victim of an unimaginable act of violence but it was how this eleven year old girl died the truly horrified the world how cats candace hanged herself one canister star and we just we asked ourselves how could we not know she was then unhappy the downings didn't realize it at the time of course but her case
6:32 am
was not a rare event no candace was far from alone she started on this drug somewhere around january and these things make you unafraid they make you do things you wouldn't do normally they make you able to put a rope around your neck and hang yourself. they were still dizzy from death traumatized and broken when they solve the mystery the drugs responsible they say a cold s s r i's and they're among the best selling drugs in the world s s r i's better known as antidepressants these are some symptoms of the primary psychiatric drugs like assess our eyes have been defended with religious zeal by their believes and downed by others as some of the most dangerous drugs on the planet distinguishing truth from fiction has been a challenge and this is place the public in the an enviable position of deconstructing the scientific and medical dogma on their own in the midst of
6:33 am
a thirty s. social experiment as director of the national institutes of mental health thomas insel has been at the center of a storm of contradictions about the use of these drugs so i think we have to be very humble about this right now because we've often been so self-congratulatory because we have after all many people feel made great strides. the numbers don't really support that dr insel skandha is sure to shock upset many on all sides of the debate the word failure is one few have dad to utter fundamentally why we failed here why has the suicide rate not come down why have as they measures disability whatever those might be why have those continued to go up instead of down all the numbers are going in the wrong direction so we're already failed what's gone wrong here a lot of people say it's because of stigma and access the fact is that actually
6:34 am
more people are getting more treatment than ever before so it's hard for me to poit believe that i would just submit that from the end i am age perspective. the answer about why we failed is a little more disruptive and that answer is that we don't know enough to hear the director of the and i am h. say now that all of the axle taishan about psychotropics. from the media from academia from the profession from governments were not merited is unsettling off to billions of prescriptions and hundreds of billions of dollars in drug company profits how did this occur i think that our field has gone off track here by devoting so much of its resources over the last twenty or thirty years both publicly and privately to under trying to understand how the drugs work but you've got medications here that at most reduce some of the symptoms of mood disorders of psychotic disorders they don't in any sense provide
6:35 am
a cure this change of heart contradicts what we've been told about psychiatric drugs for a generation now and raises serious questions about how and why these drugs have been dispensed so indiscriminately using antidepressants or any of the psychiatric drugs is simply not it's not understood is not explained it's not do well to ponder i think they're in a different class of drugs from most of the drugs that we take for our other elements in the eighty's and ninety's s.-s. our eyes were the first in a class of new mental health potions heralded as wonder drugs and miracle curious they were extolled as safe and effective solutions for the age old problem of depression and were marketed as such thus began an aggressive march towards a new era in psychiatry one which boasted chemicals for the mental health conditions the dog to mankind for millennia thirty years later however the window
6:36 am
on that era and its bold proclamations appears to be closing in the immediate it can make a huge difference you could have someone going from being psychotic to being non-psychotic which is a pretty amazing change in behavior. but i think what we we need to recognize had that happened or last fifty years is that they haven't. siobhán to be as good as we thought they were. while the drug companies ruthlessly defended their magic bullets in the courts and through the press they were in effect stigmatizing people who were harmed by using them in the early one nine hundred ninety s. this issue had reached a peak was prozac causing violence and suicide but what happened was that there psychopharmacology committee almost everybody on the committee worked for the drug companies so the conflicts of interest was so enormous that the f.d.a. had to give them or letters for giving them or their conflicts of interest they can
6:37 am
be sued it was a manner of how do we cover it up how do we hide it at every step of the process towards approval and marketing thereafter was designed to hide and mislead the public and physicians about the suicide side effect lilly's own secret files implicate the f.d.a. . robert temple and thomas as being complicit in a scheme to whitewash the dark facts about prozac. has been called the house that the president before the drug was introduced clearly reported earnings of six hundred million dollars annually prozac changeless fortunes and the company banked at least twenty one billion dollars in profits from the drug over the life of the patent. when i say to some people prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death in our society that seems to be the dividing line for some people who already know
6:38 am
what's true or have read about and understand it and then there's others who think that's a myth that can't be true they simply can't conceive of so they stop listening terence young is a member of parliament in canada serving oakville ontario just outside of toronto after a prescription drug caused the death of his daughter vanessa he founded an advocacy group drug safety canada vanessa collapsed in front of me her heart had stopped basically she said. it up to go upstairs when you lose a child your world is upside down and i was thrown into a study of medicine of medical jargon of how the health care system works and when it doesn't work and i didn't ask for it but it was my way of dealing with the loss of an s. or so it was in a sense my way of grieving and it started the day she died for five years young investigated the practices of the medical and drug industries and in
6:39 am
doing so he says he realized have pharmacy influence had permeated every construct of modern society the loss of his daughter coupled with the shocking truth see uncovered through his medical research led him to write death by prescription and become one of canada's most od and proponents of informed choice. when lawmakers manufacture consensus instinct of public wealth. when the right wing closest project themselves. with the financial merry go round lifts only the one percent told. to ignore middle of the room signal. diluting the real news is really low. in case you're
6:40 am
new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington washington controls the media the media control over the voters elected the businessman to run this country business equals power boom bust it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. there's bed with me i'm going to go it can all get a little old if you go by the arm plus i'm a lawyer but i you. know both it was a problem but i guess sort of kind of on the other side of this yes for the see a dump a handwritten note here if you saw a little mystery. to get. to.
6:41 am
where they boo you will get a statistic good area to look for immigrants it's hit and miss we never really know for sure but this has been a active area. becky so i can. tell ya you. know. when i started going. on. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry for me i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i
6:42 am
never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each person . but then my feeling started to change you talked about more like it was icky still some more 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 the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with death this. speak as there are no other takers. that mainstream media has met its maker. box or smith kline is just paid the largest fine in the history of the united states related to fraud and criminal acts for a drug company they paid three billion dollars for illegal marketing of paxil wellbutrin and avandia paxil and avandia both having been drugs that caused
6:43 am
a lot of deaths due to adverse drug reactions and they paid it in cash this action constitutes the largest health care settlement in united states history it was in their business plan because those three drugs in the years involved saw twenty five billion dollars worth of the drugs are marked up in the thousands of percent psychiatric unscientific ethics were cast aside in exchange for profits no one went to jail and real people paid the price. printing words hard on his sleeve he just adored social situations he loved to sing from a very young age and music was part of our life and part of what he he adored what i miss most about brennan is he came in it always give me a hug. i do and him a hug i still think to this day he's going to walk through the door we were driving not too long ago nancy myself and our other son hayden and i looked in the backseat
6:44 am
and he was sleeping and i went to look to see if britain was there to start a habit if he was sleeping too i saw brennan walk out of this house he was very robotic. brennan away going it's ok mom i just gotta go put on his winter coat brennan it's hot out today it's ok mom i've just gotta go put on his way her hand he said brennan it's hot out today you won't need that it's ok mom i've just got to go and i said well i need you here for. a minute no it's ok mom i've just got to go and that all he could say to me and this was a child who was very articulate who would who is so verbose that sometimes he would just say ok enough and therefore ready for days prior brennan went to the family doctor with a chest cold and inexplicably came home with a sample pack of the antidepressant super next at the time of his disappearance he was exhibiting the classic signs of. i let him go out the door
6:45 am
and that was the last time i saw some of the life and he brought us rope from the local store. and drove to a conservation area texted us. and then have them self before long other teens across the canadian province of ontario would dying just like brennan did for terence young the problem hit close to home again when friends and constituents faced the same hora he in the mccartney's had my wife call my son hard to the phone and we heard him say a few words and the bang the phone down and ran upstairs obviously quite upset and we one said what happened he said sarah curran hanged herself and we had met sarah who was eighteen years old just a few weeks before in our back deck they were part of the same social group and hopefully play guitar and sing songs and do karaoke or whatever.
6:46 am
because in my own research the first thing i thought about when an otherwise healthy young person dies is was a prescription drug involved and of course it was in fact there's no doubt my mind that paxil and withdrawing from paxil was the cause of sarah carlin's demise her suicide a young woman hanging herself is an extremely rare thing to happen she went home one saturday night at two o'clock in the morning took off her makeup and hanged herself in her parents' basement. i reached out to turn to one point because i was in contact with the coroner's office i was starting to put the pieces together it wasn't until after sarah's death. that we actually started to connect the dots were brief others we have a great connection with parents opened up the inquest doctors would talk to us
6:47 am
after we fought hard for an inquest because we needed to understand and after syria had died then we started doing research on the drug that's who really found out about the drug that's the first time we realised that paxil one of the side effects was suicidal thinking is videotape of the coroner's council saying on the very first day of the inquest we will show that paxil didn't play a part in their carlin's death but the whole point of the inquest was to see whether or not and the presence played a part in series death the courts acknowledge that this medication can increase thoughts of suicide in particular patients but they don't think that the medication played a role in sarah carlin stuff that the inquest the odds were stacked against the condoms the jury i think was very courageous but they were specifically instructed by the coroner that they couldn't actually find paxil as
6:48 am
a cause the jury made twelve key recommendations these were detailed recommendations to prevent similar doubts six of them were aimed at the drug industry and of the drug company so if they didn't think that paxil caused or played a critical role in sarah carlin's death they certainly wouldn't put six recommendations into the pharmaceutical industry in there are a good decision. reach one hundred forty pounds of fury oh goodness yes and i was not easy to deal with my son joseph at that time was fifteen years of age stream lee hill it didn't matter what it was very very violent the drop of a pin would set me off you could actually say he would be everything that a schoolyard shooting is made out of. in the years after debbie steffen drove the family's nine hundred ninety into a raging river with her children inside the mental states of both autumn string him and her brother joseph steffen deteriorated whether the cause was genetics or sheer
6:49 am
trauma they both were diagnosed with bipolar disorder just like them mom joseph in particular seemed headed for disaster he was just a sweetheart but boy when he hit puberty he he really went over and became incredibly manic and incredibly violent and his mania was he was scary my dad was scared joseph was medicated with lithium i believe he was taking seven hundred fifty milligrams of of lithium and he was up to nine hundred milligrams of let him . for a period of time to try and control it was i having huge mood swings yeah that stuff definitely started i mean i've been through a lot of pain with the death of my mother and various events that happened in my life after my mother had committed suicide. i was the most violent person that i knew. i used to wander the streets at night and i'd go pick
6:50 am

6:52 am
is such a work of fiction it's the way that psychiatrists have of saying if if there are mental disorders if they exist in nature the ways illnesses like diabetes exist then these are what they are changing the way we understand ourselves is intimately related to the development of the diagnostic and statistical manual the d.s.m. is often referred to as the bible of psychiatric disorders it is the quintessential diagnostic instrument over four hundred thousand mental health professionals in the united states use the d.s.m. and in order to get third party reimbursement one has to have a d.s.m. diagnosis so the d.s.m. is extremely instrumental in two thousand and five two respected academics lisa kos grove of you must boston and sheldon crim ski of tufts released their investigation into conflicts of interest between d.s.m. four panel members and the pharmaceutical industry i think the data really speak

6:57 am
the one word that aptly describes american politics today is divisions the line that divides liberals from conservatives is deep and even worrisome to make things worse there are some of the same dividing lines within the major political parties can these breaches be made. what politicians do you should. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. some want to be rich. but you're going to be the first to see what the before three of them can't be good. i'm interested always at the water's edge. there should be. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the sixty's full on awesome

7:00 am
for the video. when you did bashir i'm. sure you know. donald trump is a wrong that it's a reality in north korea and his first speech to the un general assembly plates over old times sounds remarkably similar to the speeches office predicts that. in america we do not seek to impose our way of life want anyone i do not think that america can or should impose our system of government on the other. spanish police arrest council only as junee i cannae minister as the authorities turn up the heat over the regions upcoming illegal independence referendum. the mother of.
7:01 am
those the pressure up and. i'm asking you do you want to see that change section two thirty. u.s. senate hold a hearing on a bill to brutality on the line a sex trafficking but some technology companies the odd post arguing they shouldn't be liable for use its contents. that are it's two pm here in the russian capital and you're watching the international with me and karen good to have you with us. well donald trump has delivered his first address to the u.n. general assembly however much of his rhetoric seems remarkably reminiscent of what his predecessors used to say our new york correspondent caleb looks at some of the new president's while the goals remarks. opened up his debut in the green marble hall of the united nations with some of his signature rhetoric which many people
7:02 am
argue got him elected as president of the united states i will always put america first but from putting national interests first this speech quickly moved to a globalist agenda with a list of condemnations of other governments rogue regimes represented in this body not only support terrorists but threaten other nations and their own people with the most destructive weapons known to humanity trump lashed out at the syrian government reiterating claims that damascus has used chemical weapons the actions of the criminal regime of bashar al assad including the use of chemical weapons against his own citizens even innocent children shock the conscience of every decent person trying to threaten to destroy north korea prompting a walkout from the country's ambassador the united states has great strength and
7:03 am
patients but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea and then trump lashed out at iran branding the country a rogue state it is time for the entire world to join us in demanding the veterans government and its pursuit of death and destruction donald trump speech ended up being a sort of call for countries around the world to confront those who quote threaten us with chaos turmoil and terror namely three countries iran syria and north korea two of which were named as the axis of evil by previous us president george w. bush but we know their true nature. north korea is a regime arming with missiles and weapons of mass destruction. while starving its citizens. iran aggressively pursue these weapons and exports terror while an unelected few repressed the iranian people hope for freedom so much for trump's
7:04 am
election promises offering a new approach to world politics focusing on america's national interests and not being the policeman of the world it will r.t. new york and george w. bush is not the only president whose rhetoric was similar to trump's at times the new president even sounded like his policy opponent and predecessor barack obama. in america we do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone i do not think that america can or should impose our system of government on other couples. in remote corners of the world citizens are demanding respect for the dignity of all people a future of dignity and peace for the people of this wonderful earth. we will fight together we must work together sacrifice together i believe we must do better together and stand together for peace all of us can be
7:05 am
coworkers with god the almighty god who made us all as our correspondent mentioned earlier trump lashed out at north korea syria and iran in his address to rome's foreign minister has already reacted branding chum's remarks shameless and ignorant despite iran's compliance with the nuclear nonproliferation deal which was signed in twenty fifteen washington has been escalating tensions with the country but trump administration views that the allies unfair and in july and new thank sions against iran and just a week later congress passed a bill to impose fresh sanctions against the country washington's ally president macron of france has nonetheless defended the deal from the same podium much touted around. look at me because i would like to defend the nuclear agreement with iran are you gauge went on nonproliferation allowed us to work out on the fourteenth of
7:06 am
july two thousand and fifteen a solid robust and verifiable agreement that enables us to ensure that iran does not obtain nuclear weapons renouncing it would be a great era this could apply to north korea to immediately dialogue control and multilateralism these are the efficient weapons this is the only way forward however u.s. secretary of state and rex tillerson said washington needs its you are opinion allies to make the case to iran that the deal has to be quote we visited is how a rainy and have reacted to translated the harsh remarks about their country well you know the un says iran is complying with the green and all european countries and russia see this saying the only can treat that claims otherwise is the us our people need to stand together giving into america would achieve nothing it would make matters worse than they are now. we are not afraid and we have never been since the beginning and we have been under sanctions for four decades and the
7:07 am
people of iran are certainly not afraid now in fact sanctions have made iran more independent in many fields. we discussed the potential consequences of washington's pressure on iran with former cia officer jack rice as well as to wrong based political analysts why it must cost them. unfortunately we have to realize that it's the p five plus one everybody agreed not just the brits and the french the russians the chinese the americans if we pull out of this it's the entire world who will be looking at the united states i agree that there are limitations and problems in fact you could expand upon this and it needs to be but to walk away from this deal in itself would be a huge error at this point. has many components of power including its nuclear industry missile power and regional prisons and military clout and influence in the region what they mean in washington is to wear off these components of power once they do so would be
7:08 am
a very easy target like iraq at the time of saddam hussein. mean. fundamental violation of the nuclear deal and iranian officials including the supremely there are they have all warned that iran would give them a very tough response and in another development the diplomats of russia and the u.s. also met in new york to discuss global conflicts and ongoing disputes between the two countries following the meeting with russian foreign minister sergey lavrov commented on the state of bilateral relations and how he thinks prompted the test for tat actions. very long. good response store bubba stewart. relations so there are a difficult and very low point. which is the legacy of the obama administration and the serious people and responsible people. if you will of studios is one of them

7:12 am
over the issue of online human trafficking u.s. lawmakers have proposed a new bill that would make websites liable for prosecution if they fail to combat the problem internet giants such as google facebook and twitter have opposed the bill saying it would undermine free speech the bill also jeopardizes bedrock principles of a free nope an internet with serious economy can speech implications well beyond its intended scope the mother of a deceased victim of human trafficking sees this issue quite differently my name is yvonne ambrose. mother of the late. i'm asking you but you want to send change section to thirty and support the bipartisan legislation to stop enabling sex traffickers act not only for my baby but for the protection of yours and others yvonne ambrose says her sixteen year old daughter was killed after she was advertised for sex on back page an online
7:13 am
classified ad service ambrose wants to hold the website responsible but back page denies this saying they did not advertise her child for years however the company has been accused of allowing its users to post classified ads of prostitutes some even under age according to the national center for missing and exploited children the majority of its child sex trafficking cases involve on back page so why not just close the site well under u.s. law internet providers are not liable for user content no provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speak of any information provided by another information content provider now tech giants don't want to change the law and don't want to take responsibility either but when it comes to limiting speech however they are more than ready to take responsibility our system relies on people in the community being able to reach out and tell us what they think is offensive and then we stuff teams of people hundreds of people around the world to be able to go look into those claims and follow the guidelines

a purely motivated by concerns about profits there's a group think among all these high tech companies and there are certain political ideologies mainstream ideologies which which are for a bit and almost sometimes on their website they're trying to make sure that their political perspective is the one that's dominant on their platforms and that other ideologies other ideas other thoughts are really trying to be shunted to the side and it's quite scary what that means to our democracy this is all about liability this is all about being protected from lawsuits these big i.t. companies don't want some old creepy guy name ronnie you know going about his dirty business and then being sued because of it because they happen to post something on facebook or you tube would have you but this whole argument is all about money and avoid being sued so that's really what is the heart of this issue here on line john is propaganda apparently attracts more clicks in the u.k. than anywhere else in europe with more on that's after this short break stay with.

7:18 am
exchange has released a report that already aware of in regards to the online radicalization and how much of a concern it is the fact that we're still talking about it goes to demonstrate how far behind we are and one of the issues here that i think needs to be raised is let's look at the countries where there's a large number of people viewing this kind of material america the u.k. turkey saudi arabia iraq they've either been hit by terrorist attacks like the turkey or they're on the border of syria with the other countries are involved directly in the war on terror and those countries then have a huge amount of coverage given to this topic and these people who have viewing this kind of material just interested in it because i've often come across people who want to learn more about this issue and they want to tackle it in their own way so i wouldn't necessarily just relate it and correlate to that everyone now who is watching is vulnerable but i would say though that it's the government
7:19 am
counter-narrative is no way to be on the internet it's a top british broadcaster has been flagged for a hugely embarrassing mistake in its illustration of a rather sensitive story and as a teacher can explain. russian embassy here in the u.k. had some questions for the b.b.c. following an article that seemed to lump together online jihad as propaganda and what appeared to be the russian flag specifically in an article they published on their website the b.b.c. had used an image depicting the same colors as the russian flag which is white blue and red and to this the russian embassy in the u.k. had tweeted saying hey b.b.c. what does the russian flag have to do with online jihad is propaganda in u.k. change your graphic designer or your photo bank now the official twitter account of the b.b.c. did not react to this tweet however they did change the picture on in the article which now depicts isis militants and isis flags but it has to be said that this is far from the first time when the russian embassy twitter account sort of chases the
7:20 am
british press specifically one example comes to mind when they had commented on the times article that talked about quote cyrillic language which probably meant cyrillic alphabet and another example we've seen a case where the mirror had used images from a traditional russian pancake festival in what they presented to be an exclusive investigation into russian football hooligans and so certainly this is not to the first time and it probably won't be the last when they were darting we've reached out to the b.b.c. for comments on the organization told is it used to stop image of computer coding which was later changed to ensure better reflection of the story west of a little deeper into this now with dog guest political analyst chris bambery good to have you on the program chris now do you think it's possible that this could just bit embarrassing mistake could the b.b.c. if you use the russian flag on purpose for this story. well you wouldn't expect lazy journalism for the b.b.c.
7:21 am
would you they wouldn't just take an image and stick it out i'm sure they would never do that breach of the professional standards or whether or not this is a mistake or whether it was deliberate i think what really matters is is the with the b.b.c. has covered russia in line with the british government and of course united states and press trying russia has been the evil force behind all so many things you know every weakness into some skill or story a white washing warship sailing down english china was of a boat invade this country so it seems to me the eve of it was a mystique it fits in with you know a kind of approach to russia which is that constantly portray it as being this evil genius and it seems rather bizarre to associate the russian fly with the hardest given russia's history of terrorist attacks inside russia and the fact that so many of the hits men of so called isis are teachers who fled that conference russia was
7:22 am
involved it seems a bizarre and also given russia's current involvement in the fight against in syria it seems this sort of line of russian diet is completely bizarre so it's beyond me beyond just saying that really this fits in with the way that russia is covered by the b.b.c. and so much of the western media as being some sort of evil force behind all the problems of the world or whether we are seeing a case of russian bias or just an m. paris thing mistaken one does it say about a broadcaster which claims to have and then the world's best editorial stand that. well i think there are growing numbers of people in britain who would begin to question a question that the b.b.c. has been caught out a number of times if i may say so as a scot its coverage of the scottish referendum three years ago was a ridges in terms of the bias on display and i think many people in britain are beginning to question just how neutral the b.b.c. is and whether it just tolls along behind the wine of the british or the british
7:23 am
government so for a lot of people here and round the world the b.b.c. is seen as being the most piece of the british government well as fair or not that's how it's seen and i say by growing numbers of people here so this kind of fits in with our pattern is just going with the skepticism about it i think from where i'm sitting here in the u.k. growing numbers of young people in particular don't really told the b.b.c. you know for the news that we're here for alternative where it's which give a different view of the world to the one that the fed from the b.b.c. which seems i say to reflect the will of the british government political analyst chris bambery thank you for your time. two hundred and seventeen people are confirmed dead after a massive earthquake hit central mexico the epicenter of the seven point one quake was in the state of some eighty miles southeast of mexico city traumas are leading to try a decent distance away from the epicenter twenty children died in the capital primary school cut vive and emergency workers are joining forces to try and save people

korea rocket men is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime if the righteous many do not confront the wicked few then evil will try and. he also declared that the iranian government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the fall guys of a democracy in other words a lot of middle trysting bluster from a president who never actually served in the military you know i wonder hawk watchers i've i really wonder just just the. what happened leading up to the donald speech to him. that kind of bluster i wonder i wonder but anything to do with the fact that just the night before trump speech both the senate republicans and democrats voted almost you know the muesli eighty nine to eight to an eighty billion dollar annual increase in military spending far more than the fifty four
7:29 am
billion trump initially asked for i guess for democrats like senate minority leader chuck schumer resist trumps which is to enable trump when it comes to the military industrial complex and america's ability to kill large amounts of people in faraway countries and this is why we cannot trust the democrats to always be watching the hawks. that's. the bottom. like you that i got. this. week so. well we're going to watch your dogs i am tired world with her and on top
7:30 am
of the wall if you know some aides extraordinary to me that this congress would pass one you know a small seven hundred billion dollars right in the end you know i was in my before trump goes on in a speech at the u.n. clearly giving him his his bluster and bravado there and it's just it boggles my mind that like this this congress that said oh no we're going to resist him we're just going to we're just going to write about this big car monger he's going to do this we can't do this we need to spend our money we need to take care of people and instead of taking care of the people that actually voted him into office and looking at their issues they decided. let's spend seven hundred billion dollars dropping by. and less every single serviceman or woman is getting a raise. i think that money is out there not as. i believe there was a little bit of a raise that they dropped in there but. the
7:31 am
national defense authorization argento the. democrats eighty nine to eight and will basically said to us as annual military budget like roughly seven hundred billion trump originally asked for fifty four like a bigot like that has led to eighty year. votes against came from bernie sanders christian go abram patrick leahy jeff merkley and ron wyden those are the democrats that stood against him and there was three republicans who stood against the bill bob corker rand paul and mike lee but what's interesting is the eighty nine votes in four of the yes this same people who say you can't trust anything this president says you can't trust anything that his cabinet members come back with we have to resist the trump war machine and here you are voting for the bill you've got cory booker. kamali harris chuck schumer elizabeth wore a laser back and dianne feinstein i can't take it anymore with people out of one
7:32 am
side of their mouth saying you have to resist and we have to do something different on the other moderate other side of their mouth say well it's just been seven hundred billion dollars i mean despite the do nothing but argue and grandstand us congress the n.d.s. been passed straight fifty five years they just they do it they grandstand they yell about things that help them get elected but when it comes time to put their money where their mouth is they don't do it and this is a goddamn you're because i was wrong as they say i'm saddened of all the bills that they argue about but they never get passed you know or the they have to like you know fight over almost shut down the government over and all that but boy when it comes to the military industrial complex is home stamp please move on what i want to ensure you know. basically it means that this new still has to go the house that already kind of power. their version of this so there's still to kind of like join these two together and you know iron out some details of the way we go so by the end of the year this will but yourselves through seven hundred
7:33 am
billion dollars means the we are now if it goes there's a as it is means that we the u.s. is exceedingly total spending of its next time rivals combined in military spending three times as much as china ten times as much as you know russia the us already accounts for more than a third of all military spending in the entire world what it what left what are we afraid of i mean seriously i mean more afraid of people and the fact that they want to have health care that they want any chance at an education that their communities will fall apart that they're fabulous foxconn jobs are not going to show up i mean but this is going to spend this much money on defense at a certain point you have to say maybe maybe it's overkill but yeah you know i mean the biggest problem for me also is how much money is being spent there is nothing fiscally conservative no i mean i'm a trust me i'm as will as the liberal as they come when it comes to social issues
7:34 am
but financially i'm a much more conservative a fiscal conservative there is no fifth there are no fiscal conservatives there is nobody on democrats or republicans i don't see a single fiscal conservative it contains two point one percent pay raise for our military which i still don't think is good and author and eight point five billion going to buy more missile defense systems which apparently don't work on any of you thing any so let me put it this way with eighty billion dollars a year just eighty billion of that year you could make public colleges and universities there's a verse in the us jewish and free. and because you know bernie sanders proposal is only estimated to cost like forty seven billion or one point three trillion in student loan debt new u.s. . you could literally cut that in half. which would actually stir the economy. back of a lot more then raising wages two percent on less than one percent of the populace . and relieving some of the burden the way rock groups and boards.

united nations high commissioner for human rights called recent actions by my and more military as disproportionate to the insurgent acts in the last month called them brutal and even stated quote these situations seems a textbook example of ethnic cleansing more than three hundred ten thousand rohinton i have fled the neighbor and fled to neighboring bangladesh but the daily beast recently discovered a targeted campaign against pro growth and facebook accounts and post even going as far as to ban all my and more muslim from another sect because he posted critically of them i am our actions on his facebook account in canada. facebook's excuse well the posts which clearly show government forces committing violent acts even burning villages don't follow facebook community standards. aung san suu kyi the country's defacto leader seems to a forgotten that she was a democracy darling of the left a nobel peace prize winner as she is even accused of burning their own villages
7:37 am
there she is tuesday morning defending her military forces the security forces instructed to distribute food on how you can get your. kicks so. she can. see you know. she. didn't point out that she makes these very specific statements so it's while they're doing they use things and later on and she actually talks about you know we want to take you guys to the villages i mean the safe ones to show you what's working the wall thing is just mind blowing that someone who was so ho part of democracy coming to a place is now standing up there saying well we're making sure they're doing their best to keep an innocent civilians but remember the wrong and die are considered citizens they can have citizenship but they can't lead careers now so it's
7:38 am
interesting that she doesn't i don't think she considers them actually part of that sort of excuses that they were going back to facebook it is pretty incredible trying to draw to figure out what facebook considers stamberg what it doesn't it's pretty amazing i mean the even pro publica recently found the base book and able to advertisers were able to target what was labeled as the shooters through their advertising system even claiming in one instance that facebook's automated system suggested second amendment as with this will go to gore that would boost our audience size to one hundred thousand people presumably because that system had correlated. with anti semites. oh and so hey guess what you hate this group of people here have some gun or advertise some we've found through our wonderful people who are pro second amendment also tend to be i'm like first of all that's a whole level of that they put those two in there that and there's always this excuse because then according to facebook they say that they remove hate speech
7:39 am
that which includes content that directly attacks people based on their race ethnicity national origin religious affiliation sexual orientation sex or gender yet i will point out once again and till i'm blue in the face rape threats are not a violation of the holocene every standards and practices death threats have to meet certain specific you remember it's like these certain specific criteria to even be considered for removal and yet my god you have to take those videos down of the military they're burning people's villages because that's tigar remember that. violated the ones you know race or ethnicity or national origin or rights or first book smart which like i don't have to do that. you know what's interesting too is that. facebook actually surprising as it is they are really different facebook because there's very little access to the internet as
7:40 am
a career as the country is in the process of basically trying to like a modernize its communication infrastructure so citizens there use facebook the way americans use email it's essential to their very giving that's how they communicate with each other and the rest of the world it's probably one of the only ways that they're allowed to speak publicly specially the one hundred and the a smaller communities because they don't have representation in the exam room and where they don't have even the muslims are the only where they get the message oh that's the really scary part because you know they also they need that it's so important. and i have to wonder about that i mean we spoke to viewers there are thoughts on facebook i know ironic i asked them on facebook about facebook about whether they have a responsibility whether facebook has a responsibility. to censor a divisive topic since i've been also number one there were these russian ads were divisive and so we're talking about divisiveness so much that do they have this
7:41 am
a responsibility to censor divisive topics or should they simply protect the right to free speech and allow users to opt out of speech that they don't want to hear right and. chevy jim said from our facebook page actually said this free speech needs to be cherished to be held up and cherished i do not have the right to tell you or anyone else what they can and cannot say and that's the thing at this point i think that the ideas of being politically correct or this idea of identity politics has gone from being a hopeful discussion about how best to articulate issues of oppression to a political talking a point and excuse to shut down for the rest of i'm going all right as we go bird watchers don't forget to let us know what you think about topics we've covered facebook and twitter that are coming off the press or political side of the international players in israel studies at northeastern university with the hawks most discussed the ever changing relationships and by a member of the united states and israel states in.
7:42 am
the one word that describes american politics today's news divisions the line that divides liberals from conservatives is deep and even worrisome to make things worse there are some of the same dividing lines within the major political parties can these breaches the mend. the run up to the martial law in the. islamic states claims it was behind the month just a terror attack by the old fraud so chill the priest every time a terrorist attack happens all these people are always there screaming to go ice is so bad someone needs to do something against them and for me was like yeah why you don't have them something. years. old or younger. you know to the level that the kids who.
7:43 am
you just let me be the chattiest. chinese tough. guy is going to get put on this gun from the u.k. to him as if he showed. of all foreign policy debates in the us the one over our relations with israel tends to draw the most passion and outrage and polarization every apac

a vendor of hundreds of thousands of protesters with palestinian flags and musicians in their belief in the need to boycott israel's government over human rights its tricks for censorship but even as the public debate rages on a quiet shift has been taking place inside the jewish american community as northeastern university as middle east center director waxman explains and his book trouble in the tribe the american jewish conflict over israel from war i. that growing political divide and its deeper roots professor waxman joined our show earlier. this is a change that's been going on. in decades in the making. all of these generational changes young. are much wall willing to be critical of is so i'm willing to be outspoken as well it's also a divide though between secular jews or wall. add or the wall all about religious jewish which is let loose but it does somehow or look like
7:45 am
a divide within the above population who are like a couple secular forces religious conservatives so in some ways the change in attitudes toward israel over to the jewish community. borders shifts in a modern attitudes toward israel. now one of one of the big debates and split seems to be the idea of the b.d.s. may have meant they boycott divestment and sanctions in an interview with the foundation for middle east peace last year you addressed how that the liberal jewish community is splitting over these issues and what you had said was quote the problem with the american jewish community today when it comes to p.b.s. is that there isn't enough to bait about in fact in much of the mainstream jewish community the debate isn't even allowed to take place supporters of b.b.'s for the record i'm not one of them are actively excluded from the organized jewish community. how do you see this window of sort of respectable debate being sat.
7:46 am
well does all of those a job a large opposition to e.t.s. with the amount of jewish teaching this generally cost is the traditional left while it's just the blue cheese on the left or a critical look asian critical of those so israeli government policy i'm astonished doesn't support the b.d.s. by and large but the issue is just the level you support e.t.s. or a lot of lip. boycotts is the bigger issue actually not all censorship the kind of mccarthyism that exists in some parts the american jewish community which is essentially blacklists individual any organization that even supported the post in court culture boycott of west bank settlements for example. there was a question of common particularly form a small number although over the last hour why when elements within the jewish community who clearly are all trying to establish
7:47 am
a litmus tests all for local jews whether it be appealable insert the dog speaking in sort of dogs in any kind of public jewish or being printed in the jewish newspaper or magazine which basically says anything that they were god as destroy all jews are all they have to do and our definition of what constitutes support for israel under the will god is disloyal to his art that keith even support boycotts against itself is completely unacceptable makes energy advocates more doss in those positions especially in the jewish community and i think that's like what we're about to can jobs allowing for open debate on allowing the political clueless i mean this is so issue isn't just about being yes the border issue is allowing for a greater degree of political pluralism and openness to that but when it comes to israel within the american jewish we reach so i must certainly do something about many of them are going to. work if so many younger american jews are becoming
7:48 am
increasingly critical of israeli policy of the government and some even supporting things like b.d.s. and working with palestinians all of that why is the community as a whole not catching up because we've seen this there is then more of the birthright trip started going up and they made you know where they want to more and more people coming there so if you're gathering people into you know the fold why aren't they listening to what they have to say as as everything sort of evolves. well i think part of the disconnect teams between the organizations that got the porter to change a letter sent him out just what we might call him out of the jewish establishment and then the jollity of the narcan jews in the jaw and the other the geology of them are all moving in a direction that is increasingly critical of also i'm willing to open the debates this last call this is iron i'm challenge them eat all guys the knowledge is teams
7:49 am
can do it the traditional institutions that are gone and american jewish politics i tend to be watch of the like they tend to the left a lot of constituents who typically all the lib just so political and so that. they aren't particular up for will supply a small number sometimes i lost the can release secular agenda access there's a disconnect and not really democratic representation is poor to change and i have to keep up the views of most of a lot of that perception the small group we turn to. when it comes to this are significantly more hawkish and that's part of the problem and i must part of the what's wrong with the market she's letting the reason that i say she's appealing and get like they have a voice now speaking of hawkish. who previously talked about how prime minister netanyahu over time you know kind of clearly aligned with the u.s.
7:50 am
republican party whether in supporting mitt romney or siding with congressional republicans over president obama and you know now obviously opening openly embracing donald trump do you do you think these pardons and choices could potentially backfire on israel as a whole considering that the liberal you know it's leaning the liberal ban that most american jewish people are kind of heading towards actually i think they're a little back by that i think it will look at the trends in. as for melbourne public opinion in general one of the things that's most striking is that a growing partisan divide mccombs to use what is on the israeli palestinian conflict in particular democrats and liberal spencer stuff identified as nebulous and now increasingly critical of israel i'm living as a particular up all growing more sympathetic toward the palestinians rather than israel now he demanded reasons for this but i think undoubtedly prime minister said
7:51 am
no i'm kind of a great it's almost alliance that he has forged with the republican party and united states i didn't particularly his plenary contentious let's say relationship with obama which was very knowledgable and i think that's one of the fact is that pads that is driving them our can in the mouth and democrats in the united states away from support christgau ultimately supporters are like states had. persisted to the southern woman in politics because it's less than the bottom i'm dashed it's been supported by democrats and republicans don't want the support for israel in the united states the columns public or something that's associated with those who are conservative i think ultimately in the long run that's going to empower us government support reserve because of the will eventually there's going to be a democrat again in the white house and maybe a democratic majority in congress and that's going to challenge us israeli
7:52 am
relations but you chad. very fascinating very very well now let me ask you because of all that beth all of these research changing times and sort of figuring out how the community and the politics are all going to come together do you think this more politically diverse and outspoken jewish american community and in the same way or bad very conservative jewish community has sort of lobbied here in some bands can they do the same thing and push israel and a more peaceful direction when it comes to resolving the palestinian conflict so we have a little help on. that was actually part of the question that i had in my mind when i mentioned such i actually write the book and i was wondering whether at a time when the obama was just coming into office the kind of immersion liberal majority of them of engines could in fact be a force for peace between israel and the palestinians are cautiously i think that exaggerates the implants for them all and to several israeli governments. certainly
7:53 am
he is well received a lot of them out of your support and some might think that given the support they would be attentive to the. colonies well you've gotten them i don't but it's really i pretty much demonstrated it. disregards toward a local jewish views not only concerning the economy of the palestinians but that of matches and settle themselves with regards to the states is all streams of judaism in israel so i really don't think israeli governments are certainly not this point by when government is particularly with. all the liberal of love and she says they're trying to keep it just misses naive and idealistic at best well a multitude may in total be more than to ensure there isn't shifting the use of the united states in particular well by sending a message to the politicians in washington that criticism of israel.
7:54 am
while it can be close well actually it's a little. more although it didn't. take that position that you can eat crow zero but particularly they shouldn't i think some of them have begun of choice us a position but. it's all his presidential campaigns and i think a little toy that can create a space in politics in washington where you light up the local politicians who are all coming up. with all goods as well but we believe that is all the location i was to challenge is not a bar to the palestinians it's part of who is well. most definitely a wild dog i want to thank you for coming on today we're going to have works when the co-director of northeastern university is middle east institute a pleasure having you with us today on people. you may have heard about the great
