a couple of minutes right here on alt. a new spy scandal has flared up between georgia and russia after reports that twenty people have been caught allegedly spying for moscow georgian officials have so far refused to confirm or deny any parts of the story but have said they will soon make a statement artie's peter all of a tries to shed more light on the story. well on friday the reuters news agency was reporting that twenty people had been arrested in georgia accused of spying for moscow the report cited a source saying that all twenty were georgian citizens however way yet to hear any official response from the georgian sides over those arrests now we may not hear until perhaps november the fifth when the georgian foreign ministry has said that they will issue a news conference to talk about the situation at the georgians might not have said anything but russian political figures have spoken out on they say this spice
7:06 am
scandal if you will saying that they believe that there's no dues no need for russia to have a spy network in georgia and it this is just the georgian side trying to play russia off as the bad guy again. this looks like another of georgia's internal political battles in russia is used as the boogie man as usual russia doesn't need a spy network in georgia will be waste of resources russian officials can get all the information in georgia without leaving their desks there's a massive georgian jospeh here in russia was jong toys to homeland's so there's absolutely no need for any old spying methods to gather intelligence it's all basically nothing more than pawns of george's internal policies twenty thousand and six russian military personnel who were arrested in georgia accused of spying for russia and that resulted in the the temporary terminations of travel and services between the two nations and the relationships between the countries hit its lowest ebb in two thousand and eight following georgian aggression in south
7:07 am
a set yet this forced russia to send troops into the region and resulted in the military conflict in august of that year and in march of twenty ten this year we saw two russian citizens and one georgian receiving lengthy prison sentences here in russia on espionage charges so quite a few incidents over the past few years involving tensions between these two countries. still ahead for you this hour. take it easy carry. you can see that it really does provide. a. comedian jon stewart has more clout in america than president barack obama that's the view of voters in an online men's magazine who picked the daily show host as
7:08 am
the most influential man of the year in the united states and is. going to reports today he's putting his popularity to the test in public. when its own box gets in the way of political promises were promised during the campaign change you can believe in right it wasn't change them believe in in eighteen months when the media wants over with fear and anger. and the minds of a population are attacked with misinformation there's such a lack of truth on the airwaves were being dumbed down by the news business who are americans left to trust according to a poll conducted by an online men's magazine comedian jon stewart is the most influential man in america after eleven years on the daily show how four million voters bumped him up to the number one spot and i would be concerned if it was they said larry the cable guy was the must trust a man who married guy so i feel like. one way of earning the trust has been
7:09 am
confronting the mainstream media we need help from the media and they're earning us they sexting the lies being spun by pundits taking over t.v. screens in america i. know you don't think it's going to look silly doing it how do you learn that border collies doing the right thing there you. know. i don't know do you think it's dangerous well i wonder what the letter would have to say about. the security in the us these days it is taking a comedian to show that the lack of trust in the media is what's causing programs ratings to crash i have privately amongst my friends and also an occasional newspapers and television show. mentioned this show as being bad you made the
7:10 am
right choice you are leaving this place you know when you are in the last guy out of a burning building draw on. and you are so up and so comedian jon stewart became the most trusted man in america he calls crap like you sees it and always uses humor humor and simpler reasons to he's just a handsome man he's just a handsome trustworthy fellow but it's far from just believing he's appreciating the humor for the first time a sitting president has appeared on stewart's show just a couple of days before the midterm election the democrats this year seem to be running on. please baby one more chance now. in the same pool stuart won the number one spot obama didn't even make the top twenty with tens of thousands of americans if not more headed to jon stewart's rally to restore sanity this weekend the fight for truth in media and in politicians is moving almost right into the homes of the
7:11 am
political elite and even those stewards and denies being a man of politics there is this idea out there that comedians do not have a personal political agenda but it has one i can say that we do if the comedian were to push his agenda forward the most trusted man in america would have his followers join him which should be the scary thought for all those politicians media pundits and the rest of the establishment so far failing to earn trust with their own people and so i say if you're going to r.c. new york. well people trust jon stewart because he questions power that's why jeff cohen journalism professor at ithaca college things but he does warn the comedian don't become a politician. you know i don't know that he's the most and but i think one of the reasons he's so popular is he his program is imbued with small d. democratic spirit you look at people with skepticism you look.
7:12 am
questioning what they're doing you have an attitude about them that's the democratic spirit that our country was founded we about the united states is this democratic spirit so when you look at the corporate mainstream media you see a lot of cozying up to so i think the reason. is they make fun of they make fun of. were important they make fun of the media elite themselves. blogs are always available twenty. to one of its.
