something that that occurred to me when i read this story was perhaps you know this does incentivize a company to settle with someone because a lot of companies i don't care for it's a car company or a computer company or entertainment they'll keep a stash of cash to worry about lawsuits of any kind in any payouts needed do you think this would incentivize those companies to hand over that cash if then the government essentially pays for it so that's what's given there it's much easier in the long run for a corporation to just write a check and give them a non-disclosure agreement and everybody walks away i mean what you're finding is that ultimately if corporations simply followed basic protocol and procedure and were just better about sort of nipping the south in the bud when it starts to be a problem they wouldn't have to have bags of cash. i don't like in the weinstein situation i think we're going to see more lawsuits and at the end of the day the weinstein company and people who are related to that could end up paying a lot of money and investors and movie stars on sets production companies and then
on wall street we're seeing it there too now and then politicians of court well it's always been there and all of the people are coming out i mean yeah we're seeing do you think that this will turn the tide of you know people saying i'm not going to settle i'm going to take you to court because it's justice because you report one person and then you find a string of thirty years do you think there will be an avoidance of settlements now and said taking two people people to court and grabbing money that way i think it is because now what you're seeing is anger you're seeing and i think the fact that law enforcement and police departments are finally starting to really prosecute or investigate these crimes even ones that happened years before any point if they involve a workplace especially those looking into them now and if those start to go to court and people get prosecuted corporations are going to want to and at the end of the day their stockholders stockholders know they are using money to pay off. a
viewer i think you could have a lot of people wondering what profits really look like right if you're paying thirty two million to somebody to cover that but then you know there's a string it's not it's not a want to thank you so much tabitha was co-host of watching the. shifting gears if you're a fan of something you don't generally like it when someone tries to make changes to that whether it's your favorite character on t.v. or in this case nutella a consumer protection group noticed a slightly lighter color of the delicious hazelnut spread and that the amount of milk powder had been increased because cocoa was now lower on the list of ingredients they they concluded then that the company had to have cut back the amount of cocoa in the spread in order to add more milk powder it's an honest adoption there this isn't the only time candy lovers have felt betrayed by the brands they love just last year toblerone fans had their own scandal when they found out that the distance between each chocolatey triangle had increased
seemingly overnight way to cut costs very smart thanks for watching be sure to catch us on directv in the united states you can find us on the r t channel three two one and if you miss us on directv catch boom bust on you tube youtube dot com slash thanks for watching c n x time. i don't seem crazy it's the people are always suffering go. those two percent of the responsibilities of government from one come to the seventy one or the seventy percent is coming from one either. i think that we have
deal with that devotional. to sitting on. even. conditionally to be pursued as i live eat here. leave no. need to. be young. and beyond. we have many things in this world alex this is an e-mail for everyone and why some people's wants to take our thing all the power just for themselves and finishing rather than human.
middle of the room sick. anymore you. got a very wide grin on my face because that saudi prince. we tell them it just good. at all is well confiscated a slip put on a. brit so tell the middle riyad. up up. to the. regular exit says the cia wrote coded to impersonate the russians can suppress the lab anti-virus program. the u.s.
is attempting to create problems around next year's presidential election in russia in response to perceived meddling last year. the u.s. justice department america register as a foreign agent before monday. could be frozen if it does not comply. order their citizens out of lebanon immediately after the resignation of the saudi prime minister. by broadcasting. claims that the cia has created a computer program that impersonates the software of russian anti-virus companies. as more. we now have a new batch of documents from wiki leaks that give insight into how the cia
operates on a daily basis collecting information now one of the revelations in the new batch of documents shows that the cia has a program for imitating kaspersky laboratory a well known russian software company conspiracy laboratory has been at the center of some scandal recently we had u.s. authorities essentially barring any government agency from using their products saying that they present a risk to homeland security a recent report from the wall street journal accused kaspersky laboratory of essentially stealing government information and secrets with its malware software from the us an essay national security agency we actually had a statement from the u.s. homeland security secretary regarding the laboratory the risk that the russian government but they're acting on its own in collaboration with conspiracy could capitalize on access provided by kaspersky products to compromise federal
information and information systems directly implicates u.s. national security now kaspersky laboratory responded to these allegations saying the company has never helped nor will help any government in the world with its cyber espionage or offensive cyber efforts because the laboratory considers itself to be a cyber company a software corporation it's not involved in government activities espionage anything to that effect now at this point it is quite interesting to see that these allegations have been leveled against kaspersky laboratory when the cia specifically had a program designed to leave false digital fingerprints and make it look like software and malware activities were being done by kaspersky laboratories so a lot of questions are being raised people that browse the internet using software and malware may wonder now when they use such programs are they using programs that have been released and designed. by the cia or is it actually kaspersky
laboratories it's unclear as we see this program has been utilized by the cia to give false digital fingerprints. eugene kasparov's he has stated through his twitter account that the mall where mentioned in the vault report bears no relation to the products of kasparov give ab also maintains all users of the anti-virus software are safe and unaffected of all eight is a new series of wiki leaks publications on a huge tranche of the cia files details some of the revelations in the previous batch called seven which revealed the agency had its own malware exploited vulnerabilities in phones and t.v.'s and had the ability to bypassed encryption on messaging apps vall said and also featured a c.i. a division called bridge which created a library of hacking techniques stolen from other countries the agency also had a tool to disguise its malware and make it seem like it had been created by somebody speaking a language other than english those languages include arabic chinese russian korean
and farsi that would make it more difficult to attribute a cyber attack to the cia we spoke to a former cia officer who was surprised that nobody has spotted a connection between the russian hacking allegations and the agency's hacking tools it's an amazing story for an intelligence analyst you know we're talk to connect dots but even when this marble framework tool was announced by julian or signage even though the soviet so the russians now have been accused of hacking into various systems no no one has ever put that revelation together with the so-called russian hacker the d.n.c. emails that said oh well it might be the russians now because labs is in the same situation. the u.s. is trying to sow divisions in a rush ahead of marches presidential election this is according to vladimir putin he added it comes as retaliation for moscow's alleged hacking and right now it is
sports that is in the crosshairs. thank you for that. there are serious concerns that in response to a perceived meddling in the u.s. election they want to cause problems during the presidential election in russia during the olympic games are due to be held in february when it is the presidential election in march here are concerns that someone wants to sow discontent among sports fans and the athletes that the government is somehow responsible for the violations. so the statement actually came when putin was asked about fresh waves of doping allegations against russian athletes on thursday for example we had the results from four russian skiers an old who participated in the sochi olympics and they were banned for life from the games and that's a repeat of exactly what we saw last week when two other russian skiers were also accused of violating doping rules now the accusations continue to flow and are all centered around the idea that this was a state sponsored scheme now something that something that moscow has of course
repeatedly denied including putin himself the key allegations behind the idea that this doping was state sponsored revolve around the idea that the samples from the russian athletes were in fact tampered with however putin highlighted the fact that when those samples were sent off just after the sochi olympics when they were sent to a lab in switzerland they were received and no complaints were leveled at the time was due to the switch just a few months following the sochi olympics acting on the instructions of the i.o.c. we handed over all those samples to elysium laboratory which is essentially under what is controlled so there were no complaints whatsoever on receiving those samples so the samples had been stored there for two or three years and only then did questions arise the vials might have been opened or simply been doing with the samples has been scratching no biting them nations are emerging again right now isn't a coincidence in the present is given that the presidential election starts just one month after they began to sort of encouraging
a really tense climate in the run up to the. u.s. for the un proven allegations that russia interfered in the us presidential election sort of an eye for an eye reaction and that's made possible by the fact that the i.o.c. the international olympic committee is highly dependent on sponsors and those buying ads and of course the bulk of that cash is intact coming from the u.s. according to putin who also under that with calling for improvement to the anti-doping system in the sports world world clearly he sees a number of inconsistency is there but sports is not the only field where russia is under pressure the u.s. justice department has ordered are to america to register as a foreign agent by monday if the broadcaster fails to do so it's bank accounts could be frozen controversial legislation that was adopted more than seventy years ago before world war two to counter nazi propaganda in america the russian embassy in the u.s. said in a facebook post that the measures against russian media could be in breach of
international press freedom principles host pressure put on russian media shows that the us keeps moving along the path of deliberate worsening of relations between russia and america. and put the quote of alternative information and then acceptable breach of international principles of the freedom of the press we cool organizations which monitor the situation in the us with regard to media to react accordingly it will be interesting to see how the reacts we expect an appropriate to six months of the situation from the unesco goodwill ambassador for freedom of expression and generally safety christiane. and pressure on russian media does not and a very u.s. lawmakers are now considering a bill proposing that cable and satellite providers not be required to carry video content somehow linked to the kremlin i mean the providers it could decide for themselves whether to show such content or not though it is important to note the bill has yet to be passed. russia has promised
a similar response with some top politicians proposing to for tat moves if the bill gets adopted journalist and writer new quark believes the pressure on russian media is down to its recent successes or this is absolutely outrageous i think we could quit mcafee's about it really is mccarthyism on steroids now and it's a significant escalation in this cold war launched by the us against russian media r.t. is a growing audience share in america and around the world in r.t. puts a different narrative out to the war party narrative on issues like the syrian conflict for example so i think the war mongers in the us are very angry that artie's been so successful and i think it would be wholly wrong for the head of r.t. america to actually comply with this and to and to say that he's a foreign agent or to a foreign agency be wholly wrong or i think the response to this should be to carry on i also think it might be a good idea for the russians to say that if this goes ahead from monday all american journalists who work for c.n.n. have to register as foreign agents in russia or they'll be arrested you can play
this game. french president emanuel micron has effectively called the iran nuclear deal into question saying it needs revising as are destroyed reports. well emanuel might call has been speaking in dubai on thursday where he's been talking about the future of the iranian nuclear deal that was agreed back in twenty fifteen describing that deal as being insufficient for the feature this is what he had to say in a situation the situation we're facing now this agreement of twenty fifteen is no longer sufficient he should not be reconsidered or eliminated but it should be completed with necessary point. well mr mccollum went on to say that he wanted to remain firm with the iranians in regards to it's been the stick a missile program and its influence in the middle east talking about the fact that there was no other option other than the two thousand and fifteen deal even if it
may not be the best deal of bailable and not seem to relation to what we've been hearing from the u.s. from donald trump over the last three months the threat posed by iran then it is indeed a threat there's no question about that iran is not living up to the spirit of the deal will donald trump is not the only person who has raised concerns about that agreement back in two thousand and fifty has not lived up to the terms of that agreement with regards to the behavior that is expected of you in terms of promoting stability in the region rather than instability and that's destruction well mr mccollum also warned about north exacerbating regional tensions in the area coming off the back of a missile strike on saudi arabia just a few days ago by rebels in yemen mr mccollum saying that that ballistic missile came from a ring in providence charlotte devinsky r.t.
paris. for a political analyst and former advisor to iran's nuclear negotiation team says mark wrong is contradicting his earlier position on of the nuclear deal. president mccrone seems to be sliding closer and closer to president trump and his disastrous way one sided middle east corso action and his public statements are pretty disquieting right now because their own day not only contradict his statements category cause support for the he had any a nuclear deal you know at the u.n. just a couple of months ago and so forth you know he seems to be at peace seeing iran's rial was in the region maybe he's trying to be a shrewd serves man of french arms to the region france has a naval base in the u.a.e. as you know and trying to assert its regional security calculus more organically
whatever it is i think that president barack romney is treading the wrong path and is not really faithful to that mediation all that's required to defuse this very potentially dangerous crisis in the region. friends and relatives are in mourning after a child was discovered among the victims of a collapsed building in central russia and a city wide state of emergency has been declared after the tragedy also claimed the lives of four others two fifteen year olds are among the injured a gas explosion is thought to be behind the deadly accident relatives warn residents are still trapped under the rubble witnesses add the shouts of survivors can still be heard from below the debris rescue teams are at the scene and working around the clock to try and save those who are trapped forget any word on the ongoing rescue efforts we will bring that to you when it comes into our newsroom. i love anon is reeling from the sudden resignation of its prime minister and some
speculate he may be held prisoner that for much more washington trash. apply for many clubs over the years so i know the game and so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the families it's the age of the super money kill the narrowness and spending to get to the twenty million and one player. it's an experience like nothing else i want to do because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful game great so one more chance with. the base it's going to.
feel. this is our two international live from moscow now saudi arabia and kuwait have both told their citizens to leave lebanon immediately this comes as a lebanon is rocked by the sudden resignation of its prime minister over the weekend saad hariri who is seen as a politician backed by saudi arabia and he was in riyadh when he made the announcement and as the reason for his resignation he cited iranian influence in his country. wherever iran is present it plans discord and destruction attested to
by interference in our countries in lebanon syria iraq but every human well i would like to see which iran and its followers that they will be the losers in their. wake up because indeed in the past and they have plans in the region. following his announcement there has been speculation that saudi arabia could be holding her against his will riyadh has denied such allegations by the u.s. state department spokesperson cost further confusion at her latest briefing when she seemed to let slip she may know where hariri is. in terms of the conditions of him being held or the conversations between saudi arabia and the prime minister hariri i would have to refer you to the government of saudi arabia and also to mr hariri sophos for instance your visions of him being held as you detention well. i'm not going to put that word behi i'd i'm not going to associate that word with
that but where he is right now where you see as you have a nice room i was right there i don't know personally where he is or if you have heard different reports and i can't confirm where he is but we're hearing right here where did the show should be if he met him. i don't i don't think i'm permitted to say that but i will double check i'm a journalist martin j. thinks the current crisis in lebanon has been created artificially by saudi arabia there is an agenda to try and destabilize a run to and to create some sort of tension in the region and these are the first steps or three saudis which is a somewhat of a few it's all just a given that or hardly any saudis in eleven of the movements but there are a few kuwaitis or quite a few tourists and what's the link you might be able to sell to lebanon well saad hariri a lot of people don't know is also a saudi citizen spent most of his life in saudi arabia and is considered to be a sort of a saudi plan to put it bluntly so they pulled mystery over back to saudi arabia
in a sort of panic last week a couple of times and basically forced him to resign as lebanese premier that's part of a bigger long term plan to try and destabilize lebanon to shake tiny lebanon so as to make a point to hezbollah and to the region on that there's a new there's a new guy in town a new leader in saudi arabia who's got a new agenda to play out. well as martin mentioned a saudi arabia is unhappy with the strengthening of hezbollah in lebanon a group sponsored by iran tensions between riyadh and tehran have been rising for a while now with mounting concerns a direct confrontation could break out soon started but i got there explains recently barely a day seems to go by without saudi arabia making headlines and it almost always boils down to its arch enemy iran it is
a game of chess that spans an entire region on every front in every country the saudis see iran's evil influence. the who's the rebels in yemen who saudi arabia has been bombing for many years fire a rocket riyadh that the saudis could only describe as a rainy and aggression. iran's role and its direct command of his hooty proxy in this matter constitutes a clear act of aggression the coalition's command considers this a blatant active military aggression by the iranian regime and could rise to be considered as an act of war against the kingdom of saudi arabia the saudis also ready to throw their allies under the bus to create an excuse to denigrate iran.
q the lebanese prime minister holding a successful meeting with the rain ians and then going to saudi arabia and out of the blue without warning declaring his resignation while launching into a tirade about evil raney an influence plunging the region into chaos and destruction you lose a poor and gain an opening then there's the blockade of cattle. a trade embargo seven ties ultimatums and warnings punishment some say for cata daring to deal with the rain ians and then there's syria the saudi sponsored rebellion is dying the hardest allies losing an aside is winning this isn't what riyadh planned we hope that and expect that during the interim
period of the of the transition period bashar al assad will exit because he has absolutely no role to play in the future here and while syria may have unexpectedly checkmated riyadh here the saudis are ramping up attacks on iran on other fronts truly this is an international game of chess with nations and populations at stake ironic given that last year so dia arabia's highest islamic cleric banned the chess saying. that the game causes enmity and hatred between people and even when played on a giant geopolitical scale well it looks like he was right. russia and syria have come under fire at a closed door meeting of the organization for prohibition of chemical weapons the meeting followed of the findings of an investigation into a deadly sarin gas attack in syria april the o.p.c.
