12:04 pm
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 inauthentic 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 or 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 over 2000000000 accounts were deleted in the 1st quarter of 29000 alone with fingers pointed at russia 1st and then iran and china later on and all the while
12:05 pm
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 village and 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. we've asked facebook and twitter for their reaction to the development no comment. they'll turn to for germany party or if d. is celebrating the immigration euro skeptics came 2nd in state elections in brandenburg and saxony significantly increasing their influence in those parliaments. it becomes one of the
12:06 pm
party's biggest victories harbor its next steps are not clear the ruling christian democrats have already confirmed they won't work with the f.t. but the outcome will become clear later this year as peter overby reports. 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 angle or merkel's party but 2728 percent for alternative for germany in saxony could end up rising as high as 30 big gains for them there and that's not a given this is a sensational result we have achieved the best result in local elections avar and we can see that 30 years after the fall of the wall governments don't want to be
12:07 pm
left wing need the. us is i mean let me just see it is clear these 2 elections have had only one winner the deep 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 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 all hope for more and wished for more and i'm also disappointed like many others are disappointed and question i as the lead candidate also share responsibility for this or that alternative journey were founded as the anti euro euro skeptic party back in 2013 but it was following the influx of refugees and migrants into germany in 2016 that they started to pick up a lot of points
12:08 pm
a lot of votes in the east of the country the big problem is going to come now is how they got to form some form of coalition in these 2 states because the major parties the established parties i guess you could call them now. in both states have said they will not work with alternatives to 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. well i got the beers from both a.f.d. and the left parties on the results. if he has an agenda and real that is based on centric nationalism militarism. liberalism as well as racism exclusion interests on to morals success of the use of or you write some also hopefully going to the
12:09 pm
governments this happens on the fundamental of the last 30 years of german politics 30 years of new liberalism is politics destroying the humans fundament at least of the german society and it's the left. didn't find the clue to really criticize the call it takes which is conducted in the moment consequently enough that is a problem and it's a problem as well to my mind the german media are. very one sided rainfall it just fools this which feed the ideology able to eat as long as that happen. not be easy to have a u. turn to change the whole quality x. you can be very powerful even many on a position and especially when you have a weak governments against you and what we see on sex on even just the most important east german federal state and there we have
12:10 pm
a christian democrat party that is used to be quite conservative and they have greens that are a lefty for greens so now they have to to build a coalition or do they don't fit to get at all so we've all have a weak government we've all seen the party members of both the greens and the christian democrats are very on a happy about that so but a new government will be very unstable and feel very strong and we are to get a united and when you are a strong opposition force and you have had an unstable government then you can kind of reach a lot. so i guess it's a mistake that you have to be part of a government to change a country you can change it by good position by good media and by good arguments and did all this to cost for us and the next years. first 2nd day a vigil for the victims of the most deadly terror attack in modern russian history is being held 334 were killed mostly children during a siege in which more than

12:19 pm
a growing financial burden with the future looking bleak as are to scale up in reports the trade war slows and global growth and shaky afternoons on wall street have got financial outlets warning that a new recession or economic downturn could be on the horizon now that's bad news for everybody but for millenniums the new generation of americans born between 19811968 could be fatal to meet dakota lilting he's a senior at new school university entering his final semester this fall once he finishes and graduates he'll be out on his own facing economic circumstances much harsher than previous generations of americans if you look at these problems the fact that it's impacting almost every one 0 it's not just a question of someone else it's a you know countrywide and even continent wide problem the conditions that our parents and our grandparents where they had to take jobs right out of high school you need to go to college get a trade school whatever and have no student debt and still. to support a family it's just not the case anymore educational debt is
12:20 pm
a problem for millions of young americans adults ages $22.00 to $38.00 have double the amount of educational debt as gen x. ers the previous generation that came before this might be due to a 100 percent increase in the cost of college tuition despite the job market benefits of having a degree going down significantly also don't have much in terms of wealth and property net household worth is down 40 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 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 mcdonald's putting weights on me before i even go out into the economy you know where it influences everything what kind of jobs you look for the job market you're looking into the wages that are being paid
12:21 pm
you know it's a lot that you have to think about when you already had $20.00 to $25000.00 worth of stuff. with really nothing tangible besides a diploma to show for it and 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 and 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. r.t.
