it's there is no american support but it's still unfortunate because the two countries are elements of neighbors and. the u.s. should. facebook could have closer ties to washington than previously thought because it's now emerged that the platform is relying on experts funded by branches of the u.s. government and also nato when it comes to tracking foreign influence with more his . how's that for a mark zuckerberg nightmare he or his steam in front of a horde of suits go and sort these russian bots out sort out the fakes sort them out or did i just paint a good picture of the reality web giants of been facing lately in the past election you. we've seen how foreign actors are abusing social media platforms those
2:01 pm
images that can be attributed or associated with the russian company lack of resources a lack of commitment and a lack of genuine effort the likes of zogby could have proudly said we're just a platform where independent and sorting out what you call fakes is none of our business but when wall street alarm bells are ringing you know how it can happen with the stocks it could be better to zip it and focus on an intense year. see if we stick to be the tough year began with. news feed algorithm the trick was to boost posts with let's say pics of your friends cat and sideline all that politics related media stuff haha they say this lead to less views likes and comments under donald trump's posts move it on facebook has evolved from policing offensive content to policing news views ideas it can be anything
2:02 pm
apart from your friend's cat if people flag them as potential hoaxes we send those to fact checkers and if those doctors say that that is provably false then we will significantly reduce the distribution of that content why do you want to just say get off our platform will look as a porn to some of this content can be i do think that it gets down to this principle of giving people a voice eventually though the get off our platform way to sort things out still prevailed ok. and now it's time to meet the fact checkers journalists have found them in a tiny room at these guys' h.q. got it at the end of the day facebook's not so happy with that online policeman's hat so zuck and co are outsourcing the digital share locks i'm being serious that's what they call themselves who are let me check where they come from. linked to nato with their help thirty two suspicious pages have already been sorted out the
2:03 pm
big ship is not turned around overnight. but i think the. no give them some opportunity to work with them and i hope that in the months when we have at least three other platforms in that we will see. a willingness to collaborate with us to come up with a solution bravo and it's not just facebook or do one just as great one question though since already most americans head to social media to get their news when will freedom of speech ring a bell and thank them but we spoke with anthony bryan like an about face he's a political commentator and he thinks you could be sensitive if you have known liberal views. it feels like the only people they have the right to speak out are those who agree with the leftist principles if you are against left his ideology in any kind of way they find a way to demonize you they call you a conspiracy theories they say it is you're promoting fake news we're coming more
2:04 pm
under the control of big corporations and a lot of these people who are in the government and corporations are kind of working together to colluding with each other any kind of extra regulation from the federal government will most certainly impact freedom of speech online it's going to be a bad show to try and corral the internet back and to kind of mainstream media staff format where you get your news curated for you and you don't have any kind of dissenting viewpoints you're watching for news out here in our same about with no table.

it's only natural that baby boomers were vote for policies that help balance i house price boom the stock price going on and it disenfranchised the bottom you know age groups but this was oh well. tough luck but get a job kids get a job. and indeed this is the only. church secret indeed priests accused of sexually abusing children can get away with it literally i like to call this to do graphic solution so what the bishop needs to do then he finds out that the priest is is a perpetrator is simply moves him to a different spot were the previous standards not the highest ranks of the catholic church conceal the accused priests from the police and justice system to that it
2:06 pm
does not as the i intend then i conclude that it used to shout and i am. as. it is felt as free. world.
2:07 pm
hello again now unlawful and unexceptable that's how the kremlin describes the latest u.s. sanctions on russia they were imposed over the poisoning of double agents a gay scholar powell and his daughter in the u.k. back in march i mean spokes person to be sure peskov said it was too early though to discuss counter measures as russia hadn't yet received any official confirmation . discuss the sanctions with initial sethi. the united states six two thousand and eighteen determined that the government of the russian federation has used chemical biological weapons against its own nationals despite any new evidence coming to light the us wants to impose sanctions on russia and this is in regards to the form of poisoning of form and double agent sic a script on his daughter back in march now the sanctions will be implemented and two sets the fish sets will ban licenses for the export of sensitive national
2:08 pm
security goods to russia including electronic items and these kind of exports have been previously allowed on a case by case basis the second round of sanctions there will be more severe this will be the prohibit us baron cohen's the tim in the nation of carrier landing rights which we could affect flights from russia to the us and fed the restrictions on exports and imports as well but the u.s. says they that the second round of sanctions will come into effect unless russia provides reliable assurances that it won't use chemical weapons in the future and agrees to on site checks by the u.n. but when you say reliable assurances it was last year twenty seventeen the international community the o.p.c. w confirmed the destruction of all chemical weapons in russia exactly the chemical weapons watchdog verified the destruction and can fend this in september two
2:09 pm
thousand and seventeen but with still waiting for now evidence as to why sanctions of being imposed now and the u.s. has already implemented measures you might remember that around sixty diplomats were expelled by the u.s. last spring when this saga fest escalated but when questions at the press conference the state department official didn't mention any fed the reasoning behind the sanctions whether this was because of old evidence or new evidence let's take a listen to what they had to say. where are you getting the conclusion that rush is behind this creep are poisoning i will leave it to others to characterize the current state of our understanding of the scriptural affair we've been very clear that we agree with the assessment that it was a agent and that the perpetrator was ultimately the russian federation. i'll leave it to others to give those kinds of details of what we currently understand obviously from reading the press it appears that their investigation is ongoing in terms of the scope and nature of the details and its implications but i'll leave
2:10 pm
that to others the key words there from the official swear a leave it to others to give the details so whether the u.s. wants the u.k. to disclose the evidence behind the attack remains to be seen and the u.s. is now skating around the reasoning at the moment issuing fresh sanctions without fresh evidence and all the while russian officials here in moscow keep asking for transparency for evidence of keeps asking can russia be involved in this investigation and yet are we to understand the basis of the yukos evidence still falls on the quote highly likely stance well the case of views on this always has been highly likely that russia is behind this attack saying that only russia has the motives the means and the record to target a school policy and moreover as well moscow has repeatedly denied involvement with this offering offering like you said cooperation on the investigation which london has repeatedly denied but so far we know that the chemical weapons watchdog the
2:11 pm
a.p. c.w. and porton down haven't been able to confirm all region of the nerve agent we have not verified the precise source but we provided the scientific information to the government but you have not been able to establish at porton down that this was made in russia as i said it's our job to provide eight you know the scientific evidence that identifies what the particular and their future is but it's not our job to see where that actually was manufactured to be your not able at porton down to say where it is from we haven't yet been able to do that as analysis of the p.c. w.'s report i did too far as the country. of origin of the agent use. in this time and now we're left with this highly likely stance from the u.k. and the u.s. is issuing this fresh round of sanctions but we haven't seen any new information
2:12 pm
come to light here in the sanctions that thought to be imposed on or around august the twenty second in the meantime the u.k. prime minister's office has welcomed the new batch of u.s. sanctions on russia the russian embassy saying it only wants transparency it still asks can we please to be a part of this investigation by the russian embassy calling these sanctions describing them as draconian measures for the sanctions are not yet been imposed but are already impacting the russian economy with the ruble plummeting to its lowest since the twenty sixth crash meanwhile former u.s. diplomat jim truss believes the new sanctions do have little to do with the script case. i would go so far to say that the u.s. government like the british government knows very well that the russians were not responsible for those and that this is a political demand this is designed to undercut the overtures from the trump administration for president trying to warm relations with it with russia and this
2:13 pm
is a way to undercut that by making accusations against russia that are not only false but there is no way they can disprove president trump would like to have a good relationship with russia i think political ploy to conduct a centrally a kind of a warfare against russia and i think that people in the kremlin know that i think they know there is nothing they can do nothing they can say that would satisfy these demands. back to our developing story from yemen this afternoon where over forty civilians have reportedly been killed by saudi led airstrikes most of them children the strike hit a school bus and many of the victims were under the age of ten around sixty were injured a warning might find the following picture is disturbing the saudi led coalition has issued a statement saying you saying the attack was a legitimate military operation and was carried out in accordance with international humanitarian law the saudis also accusing the rebels of using children as human shields saudi arabia along with the united arab emirates has been
