survivors will give their a concert for the next week ten days the probe will van look into wider issues like the government's response time and preventive actions madeira chitter has been to meet locals who say they're frustrated has changed. it's almost been a year since the devastating blaze and what's left of the grenfell tower can be seen here behind the scaffolding it's a harrowing reminder of a tragedy that has left many questions unanswered. there are over one hundred tower blocks in london alone similar to a grandchild and people living here want their government to make sure that it is all still like that does not happen again it's like
2:38 pm
a year now and we're still living in the same situation when we found out altered it was when. it just costs us praise and strange use cheap material why would you risk the lives of so many people and see these photos of the street. so we know that it's obviously not safe before it could happen again at the moment for her to come on the program the homes were so what can the residents of tower blocks like these do in an emergency the advise used was to stay put but now according to the london fire brigade is being changed to similar evacuation because of the farmable clopping however the government is yet to ban it tourism a promise to spend four hundred million pounds to replace unsafe cladding on high rise public housing projects just sixteen other tower blocks have had their alum in europe having material replaced with non combustible materials so all the authorities doing enough awful out of government haven't done enough. to the needs
2:39 pm
of those of us which by going through in terms of the for that experience when family i don't think they're doing enough for them not nearly enough no i think the issue with the clothing they should have resolved upon our. stores i could see i mean the gardens that one keeps it sort of coming over and sleeping nothing's. what struck me as i've spoken to a number of residents who live here at the estate in camden is the fear in their eyes at the thought that they too could have lost their lives and now they're off to a clarification from the government as to what's going to happen next to resolve those problems and action to be taken in a day or two. housing minister has said the government is listening to concerns and will discuss a policy review concerning a bomb flammable materials in construction. well over two thirds of former
2:40 pm
grenfell residents are yet to be rehired while some eighty two households are still living in emergency accommodation a campaigner whose home overlooks the charred remains of our season here's a little hope of the government's words will turn into action. corresponding option on to see action it's difficult to believe the government what i asked for consultation if would know that the outcome boss to my tools still around buildings today we shouldn't discuss it in part of it we should take action to d. because we need to have on the ground they should be versity they should be presentation if there is no representation in democracy is not democracy is not just issue raj to cause more year to argue that we needed adversity in that it is thinking of what you to see that we view what was obvious how long will it it justice. don't trump is gunning for the f.b.i.
2:41 pm
over its probe into an alleged russian collusion during the presidential election the details when we return. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the u.s. has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crime families each day. eighty five percent of global wealth you longs to be old for rich eight point six percent market saw thirty percent just last year some with four hundred to five hundred three per second per second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one billion dollars ai industrial park but
2:42 pm
don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need to remember one one doesn't show you can't afford to miss the one and only. hello again donald trump ordered an investigation into his own investigators an independent inspector general will now look into whether the f.b.i. has twenty sixteen probe into alleged russia collusion was legal. and explains it's starting to become difficult to find someone that hasn't been caught up in the wave of suspicion. the u.s. department of justice is currently expanding its investigation into whether or not its investigation of donald trump is legal are you confuse don't worry so are lots
2:43 pm
of americans but this is just a slice of the pie political leaders on both sides of the aisle are being investigated for criminal offenses with their opponents calling for them to be locked up make america great again. that's our president and the media is fantasizing about seeing him in handcuffs or if he fires any secret service agent who would allow the federal marshals and one of the ultram simply decides i don't have to follow the law i refuse to be held under the law no marshal can get into this white house and any secret service agent that defies me is fired well at some point he's going to have to come out of the white house time sold nemesis isn't in the clear either i think that there is a lot to investigate.
2:44 pm
she may not be in the headlines very much after her electoral defeat however we did find out last week that she's still under investigation much to the delight of donald trump who wants promised to put her behind bars it's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of donald trump is not in charge of the law in our country because you'd be in jail secretary clinton. and then there's obama's topps by john brennan the former cia director he was concerned about because of known russian efforts. trump called him a disgrace. to the american intelligence community and one former u.s. attorney thinks he ought to be assembling a legal team n.b.c.
2:45 pm
news's consultant the former director of the central intelligence agency the most partisan hack leader of the cia in history needs a very very good lawyer criminal lawyer yes criminal oh yes and then there's devon newness now he's been digging up dirt on the intelligence community but now he's got some of his own we are going to get the documents. members of congress want him to be looked into basically what he has done is he is scuttled and put a cloud over his own investigation and he has become the subject basically he should be going let's forget it it's a real problem investigations are flying like bullets in a western shoot out high profile politicians are being accused of breaking u.s. laws and could face legal proceedings this is leads fighting one another and this
2:46 pm
kind of legal war and that has nothing to do really what the american people and it's a great distraction actually from the issues that are important to the american people but it's consuming the white house now consuming the f.b.i. it's consumed the democratic party there's enormous tension between both sides if things are pretty ugly right now pretty ugly between the sides and i think it's going to get worse i really do is this just politics look at some of these charges actually stick. r.t. new york. back to europe where germany's refugee agency known as bombay is looking into what is reportedly a mosque bribery scandal possibly involving over a dozen migrant office centers the interior minister is saying is the extent of the problem could have consequences for him too as an internal investigation gets underway into claims that immigration. officers gave some people asylum illegally the federal migration agency no plans to review abide eighteen follows and already
2:47 pm
approved up locations some of which are suspected of being obtained with bribes it comes after a reported twelve hundred asylum claims were approved with growing between twenty thirteen and sixteen in the city of braman one former official and five other employees are already being investigated to be advised to when we're continuing to review our budget decisions made by the edge and see bryant in bremen these are about eighteen thousand cases since two thousand and if the applications don't meet the necessary criteria and will consider whether these decisions to grant asylum should be cancelled what will the also considering sanctions against certain employees of the federal office for migration and refugees. and the scandal has sparked outrage even among some left wing politicians in berlin it is questionable whether the events in bremen were really the exception trust in the federal office for migration and refugees is shaken we want the office for migration and refugees
2:48 pm
to be able to waken accordance with the law starting now and not just a few years from now when the allegations against the migration agency come confidence in the body is staggering really low with eighty percent of germans saying their trust those are annoyed geo political consultant rymer office gave us some additional insight on thoughts on the scandal. seekers have said that they have paid one thousand euros to their lawyer and and they did not even have to show up in the demon and it's obvious that kleeman has taken asylum decisions far too hastily without making also security background checks this might only be in the tip of the iceberg and many more similar cases may have occurred in other. dependencies but by itself is not the real problem what is the real scandal is that the detection of the problems has occurred
2:49 pm
already in twenty fourteen and nothing has been done by by the former minister of interior. here we have asked germany's migration agency to clarify exactly how many of its branches are under scrutiny if they reply i will tell you what they say. that is our news for now right up to the moment of elements though on our twitter page can always be found this is our to international. when else still seems wrong. but all wrong just don't call. me all the things you have to say proud disdain ethical and in danger of it equals betrayal. when somebody find themselves worlds apart when she says of the
2:50 pm
for common ground. we are now experiencing the end of a thirty year bull market in bonds which means you are entering a period of rising interest rates and so the urgency to get deals done before that any cost is applied toward financing whatsoever needs to happen quickly so i predict in the next twenty four months you're going to see the biggest wave of mergers and acquisitions ever in history by a factor of ten just thirty or forty percent of everything that's traded out there gets gobbled up and taken pride.
2:51 pm
this is boom bust broadcasting around the world from washington d.c. i'm bart chilton thank you for watching coming up today there's more media merger news breaking today we'll get up to speed with margo from american university and there's another media merger battle going on regarding c.b.s. steve walz bird helps us understand the lay of the way i don't know what has become a personal feud for control of the media giant plus lou we look at wells fargo and consider how things got so bad for the bank and there's more trade war news on china alex hyla which brings us up to speed first let's get to some stories topping today's business in financial headlines. the chief executive of campbell soup company denise morrison is seeking other opportunities morrison who had been c.e.o. since two thousand and one resigned abruptly last week with the news breaking on friday campbell's released a statement shortly thereafter citing unacceptable earnings results ms morrison had
2:52 pm
notably championed an attempt to steer the company's image and product lineup away from their iconic canned soup line up toward. fresher and healthier options it doesn't appear to have worked so far based upon the numbers at least in the numbers as we like to say here matter the company now includes a fresh sector that manages the bolthouse farms brand of juices and other similar products plus campbell's fresh seems to have lingered on the shelf longer than the competition with the unit posting an operating loss of one thousand million dollars in the first quarter of the year. and general electric is emerging its troubled rail operation g.e. transportation with locomotive manufacturer web tek in an eleven billion dollar deal g.e. will receive two point nine million dollars in much did capital from the deal as well as a fifty point one percent stake in the merged company though only nine point nine
2:53 pm
percent of that will be held by g.e. with the remainder going directly to g.e. shareholders web tech formerly known as westinghouse airbrake technology corp will keep its c.e.o. the merger is the first major move by a new c.e.o. c.e.o. of g.e. john flannery who has signaled that he wants the spin off significant portions of g.e. sprawling corporate structure investors expect mr flannery to share plans for g.e.'s keep our health care and aviation units by the end of next month while plans for fixing g.e.'s long term financial services are expected to take a little longer. and there continues to be breaking media merger many a news two stories today are making headlines both doors of all comcast the largest and the company in the world by revenue the largest cable company by revenue and
2:54 pm
many know comcast by the extent of the brand just behind a t.n.t. comcast is the second largest pay t.v. company and the largest u.s. cable t.v. and home home user of internet the news today is that you can a regulator say that they will not raise and i trust your public interest concerns over the comcast bid to buy british broadcaster sky for thirty one billion dollars here to discuss is mark of the professorial lecture at a beer at the university thank you again for being with us what's going on well this news today really opens the door for what could be a really major deal for comcast to buy part of sky and really take its business out of the united states and into the u.k. as well as germany and austria so i think media watchers around the world are seeing this this u.k. decision that they will not fight any any comcast purchase of this part of sky and
2:55 pm
they're seeing this as a real. you know a real shake up of the media conglomerates when they say that it didn't raise public interest concerns is that the same as antitrust concerns over here that's right it's similar and i think that what you have to remember is that rupert murdoch's fox and fox company twenty first century fox own still a majority stake of sky's so we have to remember this and it has been trying to get back the remaining are thirty nine percent of of me and it's been trying to present a sky that's right excuse me and they've been trying to get back. one hundred percent ownership of this for the last few years and remember that fox went through a pretty big phone hacking scandal back in two thousand and fifteen which kind of put the brakes on a lot of its of its business decisions so what has happened is they have been actively pursuing this and regulators have said that they don't want the murdoch's
2:56 pm
to have in the u.k. they don't want the murdoch's to have that much control over the media that it has in the u.k. so they've said continuously said it looked like they would not greenlight that kind of a sale of the remaining shares of sky back to back to fox so now what you have is comcast essentially getting the green light that rupert murdoch has been waiting for for several years really interesting case but you don't comcast is a big but it's not big news twenty first century fox so it just appears that the concerns about public interest or antitrust just weren't that high least for the british regulators and of course in that because they have different that comcast doesn't have the same stake in europe that it has here in the united states i think that for the u.k. it's just not a question of a monopolistic practices they're not going to have that much control they don't have any control over print to the same way that rupert murdoch's fox company has so i think that there's just not as much of a concern for comcast to go in and take take over that part of sky interests and
2:57 pm
the other story breaking news today is that comcast wants to once again horn in on an offer that disney is making to buy twenty first century fox for fifty two billion bucks we've reported on that before but it seems comcast bowed out due to some regulatory concerns i don't really understand now they're back what do you make of it well i think that what your viewers have to keep in mind is that june twelfth is a key date in all of these discussions we should that's right that's when the department of justice is going to say whether or not the time warner merger is going to be able to move through and most people think that at the most. industry insiders think that the department of justice will allow the merger to go through and that comcast is now waiting with what what industry insiders have said is a sixty billion dollar all cash offer that they're prepared to make for the fox properties that are going to go on the chopping block that disney has wanted since
2:58 pm
december so it's going to be fascinating to see what's going to happen with with this deal and whether or not there's value in the all cash offer whether or not shareholders want to see some growth in they want the stocks and whether or not those are going to increase over the next you know five to ten years really just so much interesting moving forward but i think that eighteenth tee time warner deal is going to be key to see how that moves forward and whether or not comcast thinks it will be able to get through regulatory hurdle just real quick we only got about fifteen seconds left but sometimes these seem like these are very personal decisions not just business decisions and we're talking about murdoch's the don't succeed and i just wonder sometimes you get what's called the winners curse that is you may win the merger deal but you may have overpaid is that something that could happen here i mean all anyone needs to do is google a.o.l. well time warner and they can see what a bad deal looks like but that being said i think global entertainment is the future of media and i think that these guys personal or are not these guys
2:59 pm
understand that that is where the growth is it's overseas. we really appreciate you being here professor lecturer at american university thank you so much my pleasure thank you. and pay per view has been the way the vast majority of boxing fans watch top market marriages in the united states however a new business partnership is attempting to bring boxing media into a new age r t america's regina takes a closer and deeper look at the dynamics of the deal. following the trends set by online platforms such as amazon and netflix boxing is moving away from traditional television and making roads into the streaming industry u.s. based sports media group perform agree to an eight year one billion dollar deal with the u.k. promoter eddie hearns natural boxing the deal allows performs a streaming service called design own to feature sixteen live matches
