proposed practices to determine whether they are consistent with the terms of service and might be against company policy but this isn't even a 1st for u.s. law enforcement earlier this year police stations the d.n.a. and ice work s'posed all for using fake profiles isis facebook personas were even connected to a fake university created to entrap illegal immigrants looking to study their as they were exposed to facebook moved to delete those accounts. law enforcement authorities like everyone else are required to use their real names and facebook and we make this policy clear in our public facing law enforcement guidelines speech overrating fake accounts is not allowed and we swiftly act on any violating accounts but an internet privacy watchdog says the social media giant isn't doing enough facebook's practice of taking down these individual accounts when they learn about them from the press or from the f f is insufficient to deter what we believe is a much larger iceberg beneath the surface we often only discover the existence of law

enforcement fake profiles months if not a year is an investigation has concluded 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 sent 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 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 apply 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. we asked facebook and twitter for their reaction to the development with no call and as yet whistleblower a former cia officer john kiriakou says the new policies could push social media users to switch from american based giants to better protected networks this is an old trick used by local police departments to infiltrate protest groups to see what opponents of the police are doing it's something that's been adopted now as a harassment technique by immigration services here this is american exceptionalism
4:06 pm
isn't it it's ok for the united states because we're the good guys it's not ok for anybody else because they're not the good guys this catches up after a while and this is going to make friends and foes alike angry and think twice about u.s. policy specially as it comes to immigration i would point to platforms or organizations that are that are hosted overseas that are encrypted that are better protected things like proton through example. that the united states doesn't have to reach into there is no backdoor there is no secret handshake with the c.e.o. of the company and the cia or n.s.a. or f.b.i. i hope that people do get tired of this and look elsewhere outside of facebook and twitter and instagram for some personal protection. the alternative for germany or a f.t. party is celebrating the anti immigration euro skeptics came 2nd unstated elections in brandenburg and saxony significantly increasing their influence in those pollens
4:07 pm
. this. means that it becomes one of the party's biggest victories to date but the ruling christian democrats they have already confirmed that they just don't want to work with the f.d.a. the outcome will become somewhat clear later this year a speech to all of us now explains. where we start off in brandenburg it was a win for the social democrats in a campaign that they were neck and neck with the 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 merkel's party 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
4:08 pm
a sensational results 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 need the. us is i mean let me just see it is clear these 2 elections have had only one winner the have dean 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 day to make such big games but. 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 so i think 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 resort alternative journey were founded as the anti euro
4:09 pm
euro skeptic party back in 2013 but it was for. the influx of refugees and migrants into germany in 2016 that they started to pick up a lot of points a lot of votes in the east of the country 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 could call them now in both states have said they will not work with alternatives to germany that means you 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 we got the views of both the left party and the f.t. on those results. you can be very powerful even many on a position and especially when you have a weak governments against you and what we see in sex on even just
4:10 pm
a most important east german federal state and there we have 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 together at all so we've all have a weak government and we've all seen the party members of both the greens and the christian democrats are very on a happy about that so at a new government will be very unstable and view a very strong and we are together and united and when you are a strong opposition force and you have been in stable 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 add all those to toss toss in the next year do you has an agenda and really
4:11 pm
that is based on centric nationalism militarism neo liberalism as well as racism exclusion interests on to morals success of the use of war you. also have the governments the step and so on the fundamental of the last 30 years of german politics so 2 years of your liberalism is politics destroyed that human is fundament at least of the german society and the left. didn't find the coup to really criticise the call it takes which is conducted in the moment consequently that is a problem and it's a problem as well to my mind. they are. doing very well inside it and they bring forward to schools this which feed the ideology able to. as long as that will. not be easy. to change that will call it.
