it's a case of picture perfect as locals from a small english town outraged the streets of paris in a smear campaign against us democrats ahead of the midterm elections. precious space agency says a policy sense because the failed rocket launch last month in kazakhstan in which the two montreal made a miraculous escape. and emotions run high in the white house over the world on to doping agency decision to reinstate russia sports officials enough it's quiet and called for transparency claiming water has damaged things. it's nine o'clock here in moscow watching all to international live from last year with nina to the cheetah welcome to the program. a small seaside town of just five thousand people in the u.k.
2:02 pm
has found itself in the limelight for all the wrong reasons pictured as a rundown suburbia by the u.s. republicans an image of a weak signs twice named britain's most deprived area has become headline news before the mid-term elections in america are u.k. correspondent explains why what links this essex seaside town to the upcoming u.s. mid-term elections and insensitive political one hundred that's what miracles here in j week sounds in essex have been left fuming after a pro trump republican candidate for the senate for the state of illinois used a first a graph of j. wick sands on his social media feed as an anti advertisement so the caption next to the photograph read only you can stop this from becoming a reality but the problem is the picture wasn't quite reality the image of jay weeks sans that he used was taken several years ago and since then the local authorities have made quite
2:03 pm
a few improvements to the local area so the miracles they're all rather cross country to try to pocket america are and then you come to a cover of a walking usually different plane. when it is in america we don't remember for the right now. everything remember car oh yeah it's just not something we can refuse to come in use and. so we're so you look your town's going to look like this is the bad news. a match normally should be used the user going to put a good picture we got a bit of hostility with the camera down there is it kind of do you guys feel a bit kind of burned by the negative press attention that you guys have heard yes because of the t.v. show that happened way before yeah nobody want to come study with it so you become a switch in people's faces just you know we would you know people that work they don't know all the offending advice has now been removed and dr nick stella's
2:04 pm
spokesperson has issued an apology or often apology our intent was never to smear to town and to photo not known to us as j. week sands in essex we never used a name for us it was an example of a town overburdened by poor governance which is exactly what we in our district are seeking to provide at every level back in two thousand and ten and two thousand and fifteen the government named the area as the most deprived in england in fact i was here to report on it at the time the time was thought up as a holiday resort for city dwellers back in the one nine hundred twenty s. these are all meant to be summer houses but because rents were so cheap people started living here all year round some parts of the town like tarmac roads street lighting or even pavements lost to shops that were here have been boarded up unemployment is rife in the town in fact sixty two percent of the people that live
2:05 pm
here depend on welfare payments. and the town isn't exactly a luxury seaside resort it is still a deprived area and even though local authorities have been keen to stress that they have invested in new roads and new drainage systems it could use more money there is some hesitation when you talk to the locals as well they don't want to talk to the cameras they've been burned before by. bad press and i keen to tan the image of the town around some concede that they could definitely use more investment but it's not up to politicians in america to judge their hometowns one interesting suggestion came from the director of a documentary about j. which she said that dr nick stella should come over here and she can sherm around the town and so he can see for himself all the improvements that have been made i get the sense that the locals care would have won which are things to say to him.

2:11 pm
a parent i wouldn't let my child anywhere near that border fence and the only reason that they were near that hostile border fence is to either cut the fence or plant explosives or kill or kidnap israelis it's the only reason there is no other logical reason from the be there the israel is always a claim is that they don't target see really ns well in fact many see really and have been victims for is really are we actions as throughout the region the i.d.f. the israel defense forces is the only army in the middle east and i would argue one of the only our music is the only army in the world that has multiple layers of confirmation before it issues open fire orders on anybody the latest incident in which a three policy that children were killed in the border. was part of the of this repeated this story by the israeli army terms of the buffer zone israel has been directing the buffalo's on this comes actually against the well of the people who live in this these areas especially the farming community. the past seven months

today pink chiefs and athletes have been meeting at the white house in a very clear and vocal stand against the world watchdogs decision to reinstate russia earlier this year a number of athletes gave teary pleas for the sport to be cleaned up while accusing russian competitors of stealing their medals. picks up the story not every day you would see tears shed inside the white house but that was the case with the emergency summit of several national anti-doping agencies which actually look like a on the ground meeting of rogue revolutionaries in this case the u.s. anti-doping agency the u.k. anti-doping agency a bunch of very famous athletes convene at the white house to discuss what is recent decision to reinstate the russian anti-doping agency and its rights and to talk about the future of clean sport interestedly enough but the world anti-doping agency claims it was not even invited to that meeting if water president athletes
2:14 pm
or others that were supportive of the decision had been invited they would have been able to bring perspective to the debate to explain why the decision to reinstate rosado was the right one for a clean sport the head of usada try to start denounce those accusations said that in fact the vice president of water was there but the overall language he was at that summit can give you a very clear idea of how toxic and political the fight against doping has become why does leadership along with the i.o.c. are increasingly isolated with athletes and public opinion they need to wake up and smell the coffee step out from their ivory tower because athletes are demanding change and change is coming. the president of water sir craig reedie was having a symposium all with someone in london and he was asked the question whether there was any rift among the anti-doping watchdogs worldwide and he gave a very indefinite answer to that one government voted against the recommendation one. and one abstained. the people we hear from
2:15 pm
most often on a pretty short length of group not of government the pretty selective group of national and you drop an organisation and there's usually they're going to meet you . now what does this select group have any leverage on the situation of course you would expect the head of the u.s. anti-doping agency to use trump's method some may say it's blackmail in this situation that's exactly what he did speaking about the budget u.s. contributes the biggest amount of money to what is annual budget more than two million dollars the u.k. about nine hundred thousand dollars and travis tygart hinted that this budget may be pulled so it's about three million dollars of thirty four annual money that water has in its possession now you may ask yourself what's the bone of contention here obviously the world anti-doping agency has decision to reinstate. in its full rights as part of the world anti-doping family on september twentieth the headlines
2:16 pm
were vicious and there still are vicious some media are in total frenzy about that decision but the president of water so craig really the recipient of biggest criticism following that decision spoke about that about his decision in london today. how can you describe. do you find right public pleas to the russian authorities i copied not lecture to all of my community cian given shot just two conditions we will declare a result of compliant and then we get a letter from russia sheen. and the executive committee. commented on it and a member of fifteenth water will gather for a big executive meeting in there by johnny capital of baku and that's where we're expecting the fists will be flying high with sports and politics coming very close down the finish line. r.t. reporting from moscow. and israeli ad campaign has stirred anger over his portrayal of

men most of them radicalized to the right. don lemon's comments come after three recent hate crimes involving white suspects last saturday eleven jewish worshipers were massacred at a synagogue in pittsburgh in the same week two black people were killed in a shooting at a supermarket in kentucky and fifteen mail bombs were sent to high profile opponents of the u.s. president we heard contrast in views from inside the u.s. from journalist julio rivera and political activist rogers right. i think that mr levin was actually stating facts there are twice as many terrorist incidents from white right wing terrorists than those people who submit to al islam what they're saying right now saying that the majority of the country are terrorists pretty sure that if white men were the real problem in america we'd have a higher incident
2:20 pm
a higher rate of incidents with these types of terror attacks radicalized white people who are sending pipe bombs to people of the opposing party who just killed eleven jewish people who just killed two black people in kentucky because they couldn't get into a black church look at the result things deaths and look at the perpetrators d.n.a. and is doing everything they can to try to cast a negative light against anything trump in obviously the majority of the voting bloc in america is working class white men believe the incidents that are being painted are they are happy and are being painted as down from what is really not true people like don lemon are going to continue to perpetuate these false narratives in the hopes that maybe it can just prop people from what's actually going on in america which is a great thing right now economically number of people across all demographics including white latino and blacks in particular where black unemployment is a historic low tight bonds that were just sent did not kill anyone but they were
2:21 pm
still acts of terrorism and you can't deny that the person who was caught by the enemy i was a donald trump supporter is a download from supporters and if we are being honest really but he is a registered they're going to go there is there is there is information he isn't it doesn't matter because i don't know exactly what a crack user got on me if we didn't read his misallocations up a bunch of different ways you can sit there in julius and and think that he specifically and donald trump supporter of he was inspired to do that by donald trump we have to be honest about post reconstruction white terrorism against black people for not being honest about that we're not going. get to the root of the problem white supremacy founded the united states of america white supremacy exists in the united states of america and white supremacy is rising across the world called dollar loman said this is just off the root continuance of the division that was created in america under the ministry of brock obama.

now an israeli clothing brands. over an art campaign featuring model rafaeli who tears off a kneecap under the tagline freedom is basic the ad also pointed leave a thirst to one of israel's biggest foes the video has been viewed thousands of times across social media and on the model's own page that has triggered an angry reaction which has led to the ad being removed. all of our. freedom is basic first of all you dumb if you think this is considered freedom this is just disrespectful in so many levels this campaign is supposedly designed to call out racism and bigotry and support freedom from me because this is the exact opposite of supporting freedom. to cheap islam for because i'd like this by who does let them have their freedom and we will have our when i saw that i was
2:23 pm
angry how could that be. it wasn't just me who was angry pretty much everyone that saw it got angry as well a woman's rights advocate we spoke to says that the advertisement is out of sync with the values of those who see it my concern is that the advertisement is not only not in touch with the consumer that it is advertising to it doesn't seem to have a anough respect or were guard for their way of life people are allowed to choose how they want to live their lives are associations of people who have the same belief system in which they want to live within this belief system and unfortunately when you do something like take off the burka or you know his job and you say that you know freedom is basic and that this type of covering does not represent freedom it is considered in my opinion to be you know out of
2:24 pm
touch with the view of that religion is not the only ad stirring controversy in israel a local election candidate in the city of romley released this campaign last month it depicts a woman wearing an islamic veil along with a caption suggesting it could be anyone's daughter if they married a muslim part of the post has drawn. nation from the city's our population into religious marches discouraged in israel. i'm resurfacing again says that the clothing choices of women are best left with this type of covering does not represent freedom who are you to decide whether these women are free or not if they are comparable in this way of life in this religion then that's a decision that they're allowed to make if you participate in you say i personally no longer want to wear his job that's your personal choice but to say that it's
2:25 pm
it's not freedom for those women. i think it can very much seemed to come across as not understanding and not respectful of that particular religion and culture and what we've got to do is provide the resources so that if women decide that they want to live in a different country live a different lifestyle that those resources are their. legacy or an altar international is the alex i'm unsure.
2:26 pm
