that's what it was a versus whoever's in power i mean i'm glad you brought up the incident and you know we all know is where this. obama didn't put up with his nonsense either the difference is obama just tended to lead keep it calm and cool while you know jim acosta did he did which is a little bit grandstanding it always feels a bit like he's auditioning for his talk his own talk show which is great because somebody just. sort of to see a what we need in that job you need a reporter and what he did in my opinion was pushing mulayam of being going from an opinion person or an analyst to a reporter also you're not mad were there to do a job as a white house or porter and there were other reporters who are african-american woman called a racist by donald trump did she try to grab the microphone no she left the microphone go around to her colleagues and when it came back around she said she asked another question about policy because that's what you do. reviews of things
for me it's like. nobody likes how donald trump talks about the baby and nobody likes that oh and he has a you know he uses his bully pulpit to be a bully and we all know that but why players game you know why why why do the exact same thing why did caught up in this reality t.v. thing i can tell you i think it s. what i honestly think c.n.n. feels bad because they sort of start they started the whole fake news really where we started the fake news thing and false news and propaganda outlet and every thing came from c.n.n. first they were calling literally an entire group of people every single person who works here traitor. true reason is acts of talking about things how dare we without checking with i guess c.n.n. first so and that's where you get a lot of this kind of first amendment hypocrisy here we see come what kind of coming out of this because everyone's like oh jim has a right to say and other government it's like ok i get it yes he does his first freedom of the us an example would be like penn america's
a free expression first member adversely advocacy group they filed a suit against trump over its threats and treatment of reporters in october put america c.e.o. suzanne also issued a statement saying we specifically cited his threat strobes threats to withdraw press credentials from reporters based on critical questions and stories as a prime example of this behavior regrettably last night yet again the white house demonstrated precisely the pattern our lawsuit documents bush. get when our t.v. had its for press freedoms attacked and i'm talking about r.t. america here american citizen legal american citizens doing the job of journalism in the united states. unfortunately we didn't get that same sort of thing trump's department under a trump's justice department even though they're so not bad they don't do enough i guess russell and all those horrible fake news people yet these are the people that in an office and c.n.n. dot com nossel actually. forcing r.t. to register as a foreign agent is justified far is just one more reminder that absent from far
reaching more far reaching action purveyors of propaganda and fraudulent news will likely continue to work their will on the populace that is ill equipped to defend itself do you hear that people at home just so we're aware just so everyone knows you don't know how to think for yourself. sorry. you don't have the end of the game it is like us that is playing trumps game when you see reporters get up and do the grandstanding you gotta ask hard questions when you know the best of asking hard questions of people in power is in my book that i've seen over the years is my lead great over davey when you see him doing his thing and stand to serve art and that's how you hold people accountable you don't groom stand around the room and i will say this about this and it's the same for sort of helen thomas on the mount lisa world they didn't respect the office even if they disagreed with the person they didn't respect the office they respected the job they were and how important it was for them to keep their cool totally totally out
of the most important thing we got to remember at the end of the it's true i mean really just gets. into a lawsuit filed over six the new york state the girl scouts of america feel that the boy scouts of america has violated their trademark saving in court filings that quote boy scouts of america does not have the right under either federal or new york state law to use terms like scouts or scouting by themselves in connection with services offered to girls or to rebranded itself as the scouts and their by falsely communicate to the american people that it is now the organization exclusively associated with leadership development services offered under that mark to girls. this comes after the boy scouts of america announced earlier this year that they would officially be opening their flagship scouting program to girls as well as boys next year and would immediately begin accepting girls into their car
for a more inclusive scouting experience for all of their children the boy scouts report that since the announcement at least sixty two thousand girls have enrolled in cub scouts adding to the one hundred seventy thousand girls are already participating in other programs within the boy scouts such as the explorer program and an official statement the boy scouts of america responded stating we applaud every organization that builds character and leadership in children including the girl scouts of the u.s.a. and believe that there is an opportunity for both organizations to serve girls and boys and our community. is gender segregation the new progressive pop form for women or is this another example of adults putting their own egos ahead of the needs of children they are tasked to guide boy with a kind of a lean towards the ego side of a feeling that's what's going on now i mean this is one of those things are. you seeing the girls go through this kind of oh wait a minute like aren't we wanting. more inclusive really are as in the boy scouts
actually doing something smart you're saying like you know what the idea of like just having one group just for this small you know this group it's kind of archaic you know for those paramilitary organizations like the scarab military and. military organizations like the boy scouts girls that will vary. with. that but you know it's interesting to see others because it really is about families and it's about families wanting to be able to do something together and group silver star the former eagle scout told money is what it meant for his relationship with his daughter when she joined the boy scouts he said quote i'm excited to be part of that do the same things with my daughter. meetings with their families so why not bring them onboard into the organization officially and continue that message of scouting that seems like a perfectly logical thing to say now argue look if the girls. you know if they're not being able to keep up in recruiting that's your flow girl scouts you've got to
do a better job to get people to come to your your organization yeah and they've lost a lot of members over the years. and part of that is because i don't feel like they housed in as progress so in many respects as the boy scouts of america i mean boy scouts of america were letting in trans children a lot earlier they were they have broken ties with the mormon church because there were they said look you can't force this on to these kids we will have these kinds of things and here's the full disclosure i was a boy scout explore i taught at a boy scout camp and i will tell you my experiences there were a group of young men and female scout leaders and again a lot of kids. and a lot of younger girls that would come along i mean and there was there was no disrespect for women there was no confusion about that because these young men were taught a whole series of things but it was a family pet family sort of situation so another dad who didn't want his last name
is greg from birmingham alabama actually said you know anybody concerned about girls joining that that would cause some sort of problem which is kind of the girl scouts are saying that girls should be alone and shouldn't be by boys whatever and one of these dads greg said my daughter played baseball a couple of years ago with the boys and i don't recall any of them being a reparable e harmony because they had a girl. and i think it goes on the same if the idea that girls will be a rapper being harmed if we are meant to have girls and boys will have to learn how to talk to you don't just go through this if you know. what the me to move has taught us and things like that we should be teaching boys. girls to get along at a younger age and that equal equality of respect with each other and if the boys boy scouts can do that through opening it up like they are i don't see anything wrong with that because the more we interact the more we're not going to have this idea that we're somehow we're all so different and that i'm better than you or
whatever it is you know and i have to say this is one of those things that bothers me if you want you know there's nothing wrong with being in an all female organization or any of things like that don't get me wrong i don't join organizations but. you know there's been many studies and actually a couple years ago there was a medal study of one hundred eighty four studies of segregation by gender and education and what they found as one claim of single sex school it advocates is that for girls it would improve math science performance because they're not mixed with boys who it's claimed dominate the classroom but there is not any advantage if you look at the controlled studies and what you're seeing is that girls are how you're happy it has to do with that person stop segregating genders and making this division amongst us teaching our young age so as we go to break court watchers don't forget to let us know what you think of the topics we've covered on facebook and twitter and your poll shows that r t v dot com coming up we delve into the unanswered questions surrounding the death of the tories boston mobster james
whitey bulger we're journalist michelle might be stay tuned to watching the hawks. both the republicans and democrats claim victory in the wake of the midterm elections but it seems the elections. settled little if anything now there is a dueling investigation warfare gridlock on steroids is this what the voters voted for.
and there's now a build around pray here and no one to know why says terrorists home. but there are bad memories. twenty four years ago this country song a reel of the end of the world. after the genocide there a moment women in rwanda that man. fell to women to fix what the men had broken. with gold make good manufacture consent instead of public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. when the final merry go round lifts only the one percent.
last week saw the violent death of one of the most notorious gangsters in u.s. history one whitey bulger after he was transferred to the dangerous and controversial hazelton prison in west virginia for those of you unfamiliar with bulger he was the head of a ruthless organized crime syndicate in south boston where exploits were forever immortalized in several films and hollywood including black mask starring johnny depp and the departed starring jack nicholson in five bulger was so vicious that he landed himself second on the f.b.i.'s ten most wanted list just behind osama bin laden for twelve years but it wasn't just his criminal exploits that gained bulger his notoriety he was also our rat an f.b.i. informant to be exact and while the mainstream story is that bulger used and manipulated the f.b.i. to his own ends and use the bureau to protect himself from prosecution many now believe there was more to the story than just a few cricket agents and that this f.b.i.
connection may have played a role in the circumstances surrounding his death at the hands of fellow inmates earlier we talked with boston journalist and author michelle like the who reported on the bulger crime family stance of late we started by asking her about how dangerous in prison actually is which in twenty fourteen had over one hundred fifty assaults in two murders take place within its walls. well i think the bigger of course it is why would a real eighty nine year old whitey bulger wearing diapers and who are prison that is tory's from violence look you know i'm not from west virginia i have covered a lot of people that have gone to a lot of federal prisons the idea that this many for me. i get more frustrated with the number of assaults there have been inflicted upon correctional officers and people who are in large force been doing their jobs i mean for a couple of you know murderous lowlifes violent and i don't think of as many people
get raised up as when you hear that more than one hundred c.e.o.'s have been assaulted in the same facility i think it speaks to. a real problem with what's going on hazleton in what's going on with the federal bureau of prisons frankly i'm glad you brought that up because i think one of the biggest issues is while this repeated it so there is a repeated transfer of vulgar leading up to the murder at hazleton and i think the issue of him as you said being alternately transferred to hazleton because it seems incredibly out of the ordinary for what little i know you're the expert but it seems incredibly out of the ordinary for you very well bill well known f.b.i. snitch to be sent to a violent prison with people who are connected to people he snatched are like that seems like i mean a huge mistake by the bureau of prisons. well i mean listen it's either sheer negligence in confidence or it is by design this somebody had to pick up the tear this look at the suspects that are involved in this brutal attack i mean think
about how this guy that now look i know a lot of the victims whose loved ones were brutally viciously savagely murdered by whitey bulger and believe me not a lot of people in boston are crying over his violent end but here are the facts it is impossible there are federal prosecutors in the department of justice and the federal bureau of prisons they literally have commissions who sit down and try to decide how do d. conflict they call it with separation orders so if you are for example a bank robber a notorious famous bank robber who might have been featured in a couple of movies how do you find yourself at hazelton alongside. what people are calling the handsome hitman you saw photos give us who was from the genevese crime family and what springfield massachusetts guy who whacked genevese boss is now in a prison with another massachusetts guy who i hear could be this very notorious
charles stone bank robber then you see that dico angelo now back in the early one nine hundred ninety s. whitey bulger's crew which consisted of whitey his best who was a guy named stevie the rifle man flemmi and cadillac frank salami these guys all of whom turned state's evidence all of whom of cooperate with the f.b.i. these guys were at war with another faction known as the bobby cross affection well what if shocking clips events the call angelo who was part of the karate faction one of the many people who was sent to jail for decades with the help of whitey bulger and his partnership with the f.b.i. he's in the same prison as. bank robber and now you have a guy who was in the opposing crew who went to war with whitey bulger and his people so for this guy i hear cadillac frank salamis codefendant in a recent murder conviction so it's impossible to fathom that these four stand up
guys who have notorious penchant for bold violence and a reputation as being so-called stand up you know all four of them end up in the same way in the same prison and then why do you then four hours later this guy is a lock as soft as eyes or nearly go joe they try to cut his tongue out and they wrap him up in a blanket and leave him for dead i mean it seems like they had to be a lot of forces at work to create a scenario where something like that could happen pretty aggressive boy would you step back and look for me you know. it's hard for me to. oh this is totally by coincidence that all this happened is totally there was no totally a mistake and happenstance that all this went down and you don't look at one of the main suspects are you know in bulger's killing is this guy freddie some of these you you mentioned earlier and you know fred he's
a fine moral upstanding citizen in his own right not really he's serving a life sentence for the murders of two genovese the crime family members among other exploits not you know what do we know more about him what was you know obviously what do you think his motivation was how does he really connect to bulger like to explain those a little bit about this character of the associated with bolger's death. well we all know that organized crime in the underworld in any criminal empire is pretty much scraping the bottom of that of the barrel for people who don't immediately roll who don't cooperate with the feds don't become rocks and so there's the able of mention suspects including give us these are known as stand up guys who have despised had an unnatural loading of people who they believed were rats now not only was whitey bulger a rat he was secretly getting paid by the f.b.i. so he was worth it or at because he was working simultaneously.
a paid top echelon informant and as a result he had like a free reign to wreak havoc on the city of boston so there's a special sort of hatred for again so-called stand up guys when you look at a man like whitey bulger paid to rat out his friends and set people up and you know people forget the very early origins of whitey bulger becoming a government cooperator and you know there was an affiliation way back when with the former assistant u.s. attorney named robert muller. so there is a very long history with whitey bulger and his very controversial program the top echelon of wonder program in fact it's become so. damaged congressman stephen lynch was from massachusetts wrote legislation in april of twenty seventeen called the federal employment accountability act and there's
a reason for it because these unholy alliance is blown up in our faces you know you guys know you and i we all talked about maximum harm my other boy. and i have the filiation with certain government officials i mean you think about it you know there is. there's zero accountability and i completely agree that large needs these informants to get the job done but when it goes bad there is zero accountability most of you know you know this is the thing i feel like it's a very strange thing because it's been why you know they seventy's and eighty's especially for boston and that whitey bulger era of mob crime was so brutal between that and new york i mean was so brutal it some of the worst things happening and you had f.b.i. and sometimes police involvement in the of things and i think that's what makes these this such a wild story about whitey bulger that he was able to be free of first so long that
even to get said here you are eighty nine years old this happens now you have spent many many many years covering organized crime in boston i mean you've come face to face with their wrath for covering them at times it's not an easy job to cover these people what are your thoughts do you think this is sort of the beginning of the end of the bulger era and do you think reform could come from this if we ever again you think will ever really know the truth of what bulger is in a way that with the f.b.i. . going. on you know it's interesting i'm writing a story right now for newsweek it's called snitch fellows and if you really look at and you brought it up you know if you look at the f.b.i.'s involvement in the early one nine hundred ninety s. from one thousand nine hundred ninety nine hundred. three there was a mischievous interesting war with the colombo crime family with two factions there was combine the snake person go his faction and then there was victor reno who is doing triple life sentences and suffering from dementia in prison while his son has
uncovered vic arena son has uncovered some pretty interesting documents pertaining to if you recall greg scarpa aka the grim reaper this was an ugly rigorous piece of garbage greg scarpa but guess what he was protected for decades because he had friends in the f.b.i. that friend was special agent lynn delvecchio lyndall vecchio federal judges and if you remember the brooklyn district attorney tried to lock glen delvecchio up charged him with being part of two homicides and. part of the story i'm working on is how i'm cooperative the f.b.i. was trying to take down that dirty f.b.i. agent when delvecchio one of lin delvecchio was come pick triodes was h. paul rico another f.b.i. agent that was handling whitey bulger and. some of the other top echelon informants
and you might recall that each call rico was dragged in front of congress for that hearing they had resulted in a report called everything secret that generates the f.b.i.'s use of murderers informants and h. paul rico was asked do you how do you feel you some people to jail innocent people to jail they died their people died because of what you did by giving information to you are mobster c. eyes people died because of it how do you feel he literally shrugged his shoulders and what do you want he is. wow i did this is this is a ha ha you can look it up of these this all exists and what happen is for rico not they. what happened to lindsey del vecchio nothing what happened to the the mahogany row as they call the upper echelons of the f.b.i. that allowed all of this through take place nothing. what do you get
when you mix two decades worth of snapshots from the hubble space telescope why is . observatories adaptive optics system in near infrared camera with a survey about five hundred galaxies out in space well you get this hiding behind clouds of gas two galaxies are colliding and at the center of the collisions are two super massive black hole. merging into one huge black hole now the images are special because they were able to see this phenomenon for the first time by using hubble and observatories objects they were using they were used to be able to see the merging of these two black holes that's ten times clearer and sharper than it would look from a telescope on earth surface is the equivalent of going from being legally blind to having perfect twenty twenty vision and the still images are extra special because they don't rely on interpretation of the data so the merging of galaxies by the way
can take billions of years to complete so don't expect the milky way to start merging with our neighboring galaxy and drive it anytime soon but this new discovery by scientists made us help us prepare for that event a little bit better in a billion some odd years can't we can't afford to can't ever not plan ahead of this planet and there are a paradise that were deployed absolutely because i don't know where it would climb a tree in florida got his first row for our. first over the very rare bird in this world we are now told we're about swords on the wall i love to roam as half of the people are watching those hawks. the be. ministry is police forces and city administrations of many countries depend on one
corporation and another by mike was hoping when the board doesn't implement the eyes of god i'm stumped and this is going to going to go through the. woods as the theory that he got into the sea at the bus to school bribing them proprietary software you don't know the source code isn't that a such a security risk when you have a black box operating in the public eye to microsoft dependency puts governments under a cyber threat and not only that some seem to think off message and put us in mortal banks or we call soft missile defense for the zoo selling this is also the only one local for the most of the world didn't miss you all do some of the best with. the recent visit the i still. don't miss the old vision stopped and there was a steel mills in front is up and his cards on the find. which
will notice if you should when you are not a government. you'll force is your voice belongs to you and use it. in your voice so many people accept to seems it would look like so it was as secure should we as it would if this is a difference which will lead to privacy in the official people who seek. to. cover the truth of those two syllable for. my help or so dear syria. brawls could you show your support of the serbs with the mostest. this is new day with. a lot of fellows on the shuttle bus now i'll show you i am.
looking to see that i've got to go and that you know but you also look at the model you punish for blowing most of the total trust the fluid so almost a. new tool when you. think. it's been seventy years since the united nations adopted the universal declaration on human rights but in many places it remains a declaration and not a reality how to bridge the divide between practice and preaching.
join me every thursday on the elec simon short and i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics sport i'm showbusiness i'll see you then. more divisions emerge in the u.s. media this time over a video of a c.n.n. reporter that was released by the white house some accuse the journalist of an attack others say the material has been doctored. by women in texas face accusations of betraying feminist values after they cast their votes in favor of the state's republican candidate. i'm very tired of being castigated as some sort of racist simply based on my skin color who are you who interests are you representing if you're only as a white woman representing the best interests of other white women then we absolutely have a problem absent.
