spring revolves. welcome you're watching r.t. from moscow with me kevin and it's now nine pm here in our top story another plan to avoid a u.s. debt default has failed to pass through the senate after democrats rejected a cuts bill proposed by the republicans so with the clock ticking down to choose days deadline there's less time than to find a way out of what president obama's called a mess and avert an unprecedented default crisis economist max fred wolf told us all the proposals on the table are just putting off the worst. less than two business days away from the worst self-imposed crisis of america's standing in the world and america's credit rating and at least a century it's a fairly emergency situation and we're deep into the eleventh bordering on the
1:03 pm
twelfth our debt reduction plan that president obama has endorsed at least rhetorically that comes out of harry reid and the democratic majority in the u.s. senate does make massive cuts in spending more than two point five trillion dollars over ten years so more than two hundred fifty billion dollars a year does no increase in revenue at all which was one of the early if i think somewhat unwise demands of the republicans in these negotiations and therefore is possible is actually does more to reduce the deficit and the debt in the united states over the next ten years than the rival republican house plan the cut cap and balance plan and so it's possible of that could be pushed through none of these plans make real efforts to reduce the long term problem of insufficient revenue and these plans do reduce spending in ways that will be painful and for many communities in the united states transformative but it's worthy of note and somehow hasn't much been mentioned that not a single plan out there reduces the national debt they just change the speed by which it grows. as a u.s.
1:04 pm
government that represents only the elite is ill equipped to deal with the overwhelming problems says generals lead to us from the u.s. base trends journal. that country is going bankrupt just look at the numbers the numbers don't lie the politicians lied let's look at the bigger picture first of all there devaluing the dollar and we've been saying it all along gold in the last month has gained one hundred fifteen dollars an ounce the dollar is crashing against the swiss franc and other currencies you can see what's going on and let's look at the bigger picture what they're not talking about in all this deficit reduction hey how about the military budget how about slashing foreign aid fifty seven billion dollars a year how is that out companies like general electric that made fourteen billion dollars last year paying no taxes look there's plenty of room out there to start
1:05 pm
raining this thing in and turning it around we do not have a representative form of government that's only for little kiddies to believe we have a government that represents only the very powerful and the very rich and that's all this is about letting them keeping their parks for more perspective on it next time we hit the streets of the big apple to ask americans what they think of the debt drama. makes me wonder how they ever get anything done in israel or in italy or any place where they have multi party to pour d's two and a half hours of you through the t.v. and we can't get anything done sometimes it takes a while to realize how bad things really are they keep on saying the american people want this america to work this but i don't think they're asking anybody really what they really want. in a stone and i said spectrums and they are nazis are holding their annual meeting they have gathered with the support of the local authorities who on the other hand of
1:06 pm
how to put an anti nazi bodge said to buy off the set of says more from the scene. we're here in the is staying in town a cinema for the annual gathering of the versions of the a stain in waffen s.s. now the event has attracted widespread criticism of the is being seen to glorify nazi is. here and it's a new being here already criticized to being seen not only to condone this type of event but for having made it increasingly difficult over the years for those who oppose this to come to rally now the anti fascist movement hold a rally very nearby at the same time as this is going on and as we said in recent years we've seen people coming from latvia from this to a new year from finland they've been detained at the borders and not been able to enter and take part again today coming in a lot of the people who are involved in the anti fascist movement rally that's happening nearby have been questioned by police we know that the head of the anti
1:07 pm
fascist finnish organization was actually detained last night at the pool of talent and he wasn't allowed to leave the base. or have remained true to the country and of course didn't want to do any kind of other opinions from their own opinion which is very much supporting the this is. now russia since two thousand and five has been introducing draft legislation to the u.n. condemning the glorification of nazi isn't we've seen a number of countries get on board with this but there have been some that haven't events like this that have the government support herin to stay in year certainly cause a lot of anger and at the very least is seen as being morally and politically insensitive . from the finish and to fashion as committee says the e.u. is turning a blind eye to such events and it may lead to more tragedies similar to the attacks in norway all normal that the main break their hands are really breaking to keep
1:08 pm
their speech story and outrageous that this is the new prime minister is not on the ending of it all but supporting it and because european union has been so lousy and weak for whom i was there when you know you can only name them the shelves of these as right wing extremists in which it's rising now you're not going to go well i think. it's like one example of the. the baltic states become infamous in recent years for what's being dubbed the rewriting of history the annual meetings of nazi veterans are happening in latvia as well with an official court ruling authorizing them back in two thousand and seven a stone in the thirty's remove the monuments commemorating the soviet soldiers who liberated the country from nazi occupation at the time that move cause violent protests if you want to find out more and more details you can head to our website our new documentary channel to discover more about the history of world war two

this is r.t. from moscow the biggest wave of protests rallies in years is due to start shortly it israel demonstrators will take to the streets in seven cities across the country and activists hope the rally in tel aviv alone will attract half a million people thousands have been camping out across the country for about a week now calling for social justice and for prime minister netanyahu to go. in tel aviv with as paul a very good evening to the organizers are hoping all day for a massive turnout people pouring in then. well this is the end point of way tonight saturday's massive protest will take place and as you say the police have been on the streets away for hours they've been calling off the main roads they've shoved us aside several times in anticipation that several thousand people will take to seven cities of israel here in tel aviv alone and they expect as many as one hundred thousand people now this is the sixteenth day of this demonstration it started rather innocently with a television resident complaining that her landlady had at her returned and she
1:11 pm
pitched a tent in a main street here in tel aviv known as rothschild the boulevard now on that street now you see dozens hundreds of tents there is in fact many signs that say rothschild corner of it here a throwback to what we saw happening in egypt during the arab spring but what is interesting is that this demonstration started with her with calls for cuts to be made in housing and education in medicine we've seen for ready for months doctors at public hospitals protesting about their long working hours and their low pay but it has very quickly taken on a strong political flavor and we now hearing increasingly calls for the israeli prime minister betty matel yahoo to step down we are hearing calls for regime change and certainly the protest is mobilizing the entire israeli society to the point you touched on some are comparing the events of israel with the arab spring in egypt indeed you were in cairo during that uprising where we all remember it well could you see any any similarities at this early stage. they certainly are
1:12 pm
similarities firstly you hear the chants that are coming off the streets people have been chanting revolution people have been chanting the people demand so sort of social justice and walking around earlier many people are holding up their cards saying bibi referring to the israeli prime minister bibi netanyahu go home so they say is this clear call for every scene change at the same time this demonstration has been mobilized online particularly with facebook and that is what we've witnessed in egypt and in other countries apart. supported in the arab spring so thousands of people have been mobilized through facebook through twitter through other social media now the israeli prime minister was taken by surprise this is the largest demonstration in these two and a half years of office and certainly his ratings have never been this low a poll that was issued this week is to mated that his ratings have dropped nineteen percent in just two weeks and he canceled a trip abroad and he is increasingly having to look at options in terms of how to deal with the demands by people on the street it's interesting also to notice that
1:13 pm
the arab community here in israel has also come on board there are protests in three arab cities among them nazareth as well as jaffa it is interesting lee a unifying factor because one of the protest tents i will post earlier had a banner outside that said for jews they don't build for arabs they demolish but just last night there was a tent here in tel aviv with a palestinian flag flying above and that was torn down by right wingers so while it has the potential to unite it also has the potential to ignite a lot of emotion so it will be interesting to see what happens tonight as you mentioned earlier the largest demonstration that israel has seen in years closely following events over the next few of them with your help bring yourself to from tel aviv what you know this so far well indeed the government could resort to some provocative measures to try and disperse the crowds is the worry of young men of more oil and activist and lawyer who's in tel aviv as well. the government sending
1:14 pm
people here to make provocation in order to find a reason to take this demonstration to a violent situation to give him a cause to clear this whole thing out we're not going to let them do that the more this will continue that's for sure it took sixty years to people to actually get out of the couch and come and demonstrate for social issues we haven't done it before now what we have here it's a history this state will be remembered in history because the israelis used to be . a bad thing to the situation if the government won't listen to the sound of the people the government will fall that's basically it we can take the government send him home more thoughts in a desperate attempt to stay in power the government could begin a new war to try and divert attention from the social problems that similarly of stuff shall fear one of the main organizers of the protest. well you can see it in that the now is under big pressure here wasn't prepared for such kind of movement
1:15 pm
at the moment actually our biggest fear is that not only our being so afraid of what's going to happen we'll start a war somewhere. because that situation in israel where used to be part of the big war zone we're in we're not allowed to talk about the way we live because we're always under pressure we always under threat and that's what people want to change now they want to say ok so they're our friends and we are in a very very big problem with the countries around us and with the palestinians but still there are things that we have to solve and the situation outside of israel is also related to what happened here between our between our citizens so you look ahead sort of late to the program now coming up first among equals more than a year since the government gave all children a right to a free education the social divide still remains as we had there to find out why.
1:16 pm
the sky high plans flying a plane here in russia gets easier as new legislation plays the right way from this paperwork report on to. next job little journalism a lot of p.r. that's the frequent findings of recent media surveys in the united states there's newspapers across the country close the p.r. machines rushing in to fill the vacuum christine has been following what it may mean for society. it is the end of the first of all the additional intelligence. newspapers like the seattle post intelligencer the rocky mountain news and hundreds more have now become relics from the past. slashed budgets have stopped the presses at newsrooms nationwide. and nast layoffs throughout media have meant far fewer journalists to investigate policy and procedure who are losing their sense of accountability in government in business in
1:17 pm
all our. life lives if we lose journalists who aren't asking questions about what's going on the numbers particularly dramatic with newspapers where revenue has been cut nearly in half while the journalism industry is shrinking the public relations industry is expanding at one time a one to one ratio between p.r. employees and journalists today that ratio is four to one with p.r. revenues jumping from three point five billion to eight point seven billion dollars journalists are simply overwhelmed by folks who are trying to spin them trying to create their own story you have the public relations folks the spin doctors if you will driving the news cycle john nichols along with robert mckee has me wrote a book about it the death and life of american journalism in a sense we are becoming one of the most propagandized countries in the world short

staffed news stations often use company video news releases or v.n. ours like this one if you have x. about chances are the first are going to show up because they need to apply p.r. disguised as news the new treatment is called mimics press releases also often read on the air or posted on the web before any fact checking is done with the focus often on getting it first rather than getting it right good evening everybody breaking news tonight but we are cutting into our program with some breaking news where corporate and government p.r. departments are filled with former journalists who know how to sell their message they understood out media word what. reporters thought of as a good story as opposed to hype bush ward works for nearly twenty years as a journalist with the philadelphia inquirer but after layoffs he left to work for health insurer independent blue cross before returning to work as a journalist that revolving door between the press and p r the press and governor.

is causing real concern about what the long term effects could be if the influx of spin doctors take over the message machine completely where there is very little journalism being done in an awfully lot of spin you create some dangerous circumstances for citizenry for democracy itself i'll go straight to questions white house spokesman jay carney worked for twenty years as a journalist for time magazine now he's president obama's spokes person former broadcaster and columnist tony snow went on to serve as a spokesperson for president bush and jamie rubin went from the state department under president clinton to executive editor at bloomberg news so common such as a common practice and no one no one is questioning. or in a time when hakken flack are often one in the same and the spin machine works overtime as the printing presses come to a halt the question becomes can

equal access to education for children of different backgrounds may be a good idea but it's getting a mixed response in india right now the government's unprecedented right to education act aims to provide compulsory and free education for all children between six and fourteen but it's india's centuries old social divide is getting in the way as artie's pretty streeter reports. it's dawn in india's capital city of new delhi an eight year old cushy just wall is getting ready for school while there are nearly two hundred million elementary school children like cushy in india only half that number ever complete the eighth grade most end up leaving school to help their parents with domestic work or to get a job to bring in some extra money i haven't studied much that's why i want to educate my children after growing pressure to address the educational disparities in india the government passed an act making it mandatory for all children between the ages of six and fourteen to get
1:22 pm
a free education it even requires elite private schools with tuitions nearing five hundred dollars per month to grant a quarter of their seats to students from disadvantaged backgrounds like cushy today there are just as many schools where students have to pay a choice unlike this one as there are free schools that are funded by the government according to the act it's up to the parents to decide where they know their names to school that means a student like cushy can attend an elite private school if she enters that wins the lottery and gets into the twenty five percent quota it also means that if government workers are able to identify and successfully in a row she is insist that are attending not just schools like the ones pushing attendance now could get overcrowded but the idea of free schooling in india has its opponents while the teachers want to see their students succeed they believe that integrating indian children from a lower class into a private school would not be practical as you can do to these elite schools have a very high standard only juden whose parents are educated can study in schools
1:23 pm
like these schools want to maintain their high standards in reputation one of them is. it's a position supported by the well off members of indian society the school is not meant for them. it's meant for the people who. are those who have been getting elected in the sense that he comes from good on his own so probably leave it. it's a work day with. putting him in that sort of feel in a way i mean. he would have trouble getting seemingly in spite of the mixed reception the integration model received for children like cushy education is simply about accomplishing her dreams i want to study till the twelfth green ten become a teacher i i but it's a dream that may just fall through the gap of india's socioeconomic divide oh preassure either r t new delhi india. also making headlines this saturday evening in moscow syrian troops have reportedly stormed

hundreds of passengers stranded and delaying dozens of flights. will stay with aviation surely and the pilots of small planes in russia have long been grounded by imaginable amounts of paperwork recently adopted law hopes to clear the runway for more frequent flights but many obstacles remain before it's the golden age for russia's small aviation enthusiastic as it is done is blocked ski explains. dozens of pilots winging their way across russia for the second annual qubani air show the most small aircraft enthusiastic supporter fiction's to meet other pilots and to enjoy the beautiful southern scenery though. it took us almost eight hours to get there but the views with fantastic in november last year russia dove to a new all for small aircraft pilots it sounds very promising abolishing much of the preflight paperwork letting the pilots use new airfields and generally adopting international flight rules it's a dream for any plane owner in russia however not all of the old restrictions were
1:26 pm
lifted back in the soviet times you actually had to have all the paperwork with you during the flight now the rules have changed but there are still thumb through it and sometimes even a third requirements for the pilots of small planes for instance even if the pilot and the mechanic in the same berth and you know have the main thing. would come and a phone from one to another the new regulations allow the so-called notification mode instead of asking for permission for takeoff from the authorities in theory the pilots can now use the internet for air traffic control of their plans but in reality it rarely works according as you can see there are many forbid in all restricted zones around moscow so it's impossible for us to use notification mode anywhere within a two hundred kilometer radius of the capital even with the new law dozens of government organizations issue all sorts of contradictory instructions for pilots it's a major disincentive for pilots to make the effort to take to the skies and that
