concluded facebook no they obviously they don't care about anything they only care about making more money and and blocking people who are doing good things i mean they abuse people's private information it's built into their system and they don't want to do anything about it until someone holds them to account so thankfully the guardian pointed this out and then they they blocked it but how many things did the guardian not see and there are just literally thousands and thousands of these things that are out there ward unaided in authentic behavior is what facebook terms fake profile activity and since the 2016 election the company has been on an all out crusade against it i think to city matters because people need to trust that the content they are seeing is valid and they need to trust the connections they make for identifying and challenging 8 to 10000000 suspicious accounts every week we're also going to require people running large pages with large audiences the united states to go through an authorization process and confirm their identity
3:05 am
over 2000000000 accounts were deleted in the 1st quarter of 2019 alone with fingers pointed at russia 1st and then iran and china later on and all the while congress has been spurring on the assault your companies announced a series of successful disruptions that resulted in the removal of pages groups and accounts my instinct is to applaud the diligence some of your security teams and credit you with taking the problem very seriously social media giants might find it easy to declare war on an authentic. activity it thinks might be going on abroad but when they know that their own government is itself using underhanded tactics to advance its agenda who knows if the same standards will apply on course there will be did ask facebook and also twitter for their reaction to this story although so far we haven't received a response. the alternative for germany or the party is

celebrating this morning the anti immigration euro skeptics came 2nd in state elections in brandenburg and also saxony significantly increasing their clout in those parliaments peter oliver has more now from berlin. well starts off in brandenburg it was a win for the social democrats in a campaign that they were neck and neck with throughout the alternative for germany picking up around 23 percent of the vote there with the social democrats winning on 25 percent in saxony we saw massive gains for alternative for germany it wasn't enough for them to win the state that went to the christian democratic union angler merkel's party 2728 percent for alternative for germany in saxony could end up rising as high as 38 games for them there and certainly big smiles from the leadership of the alternative for germany party they were saying that these results show that a de just a flush upon that they are
3:07 am
a big part of the german political stage right now and that's not it even if it's a sensational result we have achieved the best result in local elections ever and we can see that 30 years after the fall of the wall governments don't want to be left wing the need. is. the fight is not over the fight starts now we've become much stronger no one can remove us from germany politics and money will stay what german politics is quite keen on a bit of self reflection a bit of navel gazing and what we've seen from other politicians who will be looking at these results from alternative for germany and they're not happy about the role they've played in allowing a.f.d. to make such big games. i am happy that we have a really good result what worries me is a result in this means we continue to face big challenges in this country. we

it's picked up a lot of support the big problem is going to come now is how they're going to form some form of coalition in these 2 states because the major parties the established parties i guess you call them now both states have said they will not work with alternative for germany that means you're probably looking at at least a 3 party coalition in both states a well quite convoluted coalition a real broad church is going to have to be put in there because of the large chunk the large proportion of the votes that alternative for germany have picked up in both the states of brandenburg and saxony here in germany. after a 2nd day of the tour for the victims of the most deadly terror attack in modern russian history is being held $334.00 were killed mostly children during a siege in which over $1000.00 people were taken hostage at a school in the north assessing town of beslan.

3:19 am
benefits of having a degree going down significantly mondale's also don't have much in terms of wealth and property net household worth his downfall. 30 percent from the previous generation and 66 percent have no retirement savings less than 37 percent own stocks furthermore the median age of home buyers in the united states has actually risen to $46.00 because younger americans simply aren't taking out the mortgages and making the down payments people are working for wages people are underemployed people have bachelor's degrees and are working at mcdonalds putting weights on me before i even go out into the economy you know it influences everything what kind of jobs you look for the job market you're looking into the wages that are being paid you know it's a lot that you have to think about when you already have $20.00 to $25000.00 worth of stuff. with really nothing tangible besides the diploma to show for it that his economic gap seems to also point to a widening political gap younger americans seem far more attracted to the left wing figures like bernie sanders and they pay

a lot closer attention to issues like income inequality people don't aren't making enough money people feel like they're not being represented if people can't get an education without spending enormous amounts of money they're going to vote for you know their interests you know republicans acacia increased child care more infrastructure spending that would create jobs higher wages now donald trump says the fears about the economy are unfounded he's even said that the usa is having an economic miracle now all americans are nervous but one particular generation that never really recovered from the financial meltdown of 2008 they may not have very many houses cars or stocks but they've got plenty to lose and r.t. new york. an unusual proposal has been put forward in the french on and of course a coed people are struggling to get on to the property the head of the local assembly says only people with roots that with roots on the island should be
3:21 am
allowed to buy property there but under the plan sales will be limited to people meeting certain criteria for example having been resident for 5 years. is or having been born on corsica or having relatives there completing their education on the island would be another way into its real estate scene we spoke to the head of course is assembly about the initiative he told us house prices are driving corsicans off the island. corsicans can no longer live at home buy or rent because of the outside demand many foreign buyers are dramatically driving prices up to date many of the sales to foreigners involve high value real estate that's rented out and commercialized that's unfair competition for the tourism industry paying their taxes and expenses limiting this type of sale would limit the situation the forces of course must combine their weight to demand negotiations in paris on the question of land and land dispossession there must be ways to stop it
3:22 am
otherwise corsicans will be driven out of their country by the force of money the idea is part of a broader political agenda pursued by the separatist corsica liberia party since 2015 it's been part of the local assemblies ruling coalition it also wants to see more status for the corsican language and the relates to what it deems political prisoners we've got the views of people on the island. young corsicans cannot access the land and real estate in course ago land seized by people who do not live here this is not the society we want to build we do not want to have 80 percent of 2nd homes in corsica and corsicans agree with that proposing expropriation making threats is not the right solution. the corsicans have become homeless in their own country or people are ostracized based on the law of money the residency status would help put a stop to the situation. the opposition. remains to be seen whether this residency status could lower prices however it is necessary to work on the very sensitive
