8:02 pm
there was some tension leading up to the presidential tete a tete though just hours before trump had lashed out on social media or suggestion that europe should create its own army explains. president strong have always been fond of emphasizing their close personal friendship was well as the importance of the transatlantic alliance that was very much emphasized during my visit to the united states back in twenty seventeen but since then things haven't gone so smoothly over seventy world leaders have gathered here in the french capital to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the end of the first world war trump marks his arrival by taking to twitter to say he felt insulted by none other than his colleague and friend and former president micron of france has just suggested that europa build its own military in order to protect itself from the u.s. china and russia very insulting but perhaps europe should first pay its fair share
8:03 pm
of nato which the us subsidizes greatly but troubles of course referring to the interview given by micron earlier in the week in which she expressed support for a joint european army a military force to defend the mainland from a range of threats one of which was perhaps a surprise on that list we need a europe which defends itself better alone without just depending on the united states in a more sovereign manner when trouble did arrive in paris their leaders tried to smooth things over saying there was no problem with even micron's office admitting the remarks might have caused just a little confusion instead of hurt you have the european security to be being assured just lines the united states and we need to be the solution for you would use it for you sharing you know my attitude has been this we want to show your true employees do things through you which ever way we can do it the best thing the most

efficient could be something that you both want so as the u.s. president arrives in the french capital it was all smiles handshakes and thumbs up for the cameras but this misunderstanding by far isn't the only sticking point between the two leaders the iran nuclear deal. the pulling out of that agreement by the author states was roundly criticized with the france germany the u.k. issuing a statement of concern and regret. as well. the pulling out of the schools. as well commemoration is the official reason of the gathering here in paris that i keep pressing international issues to discuss behind the scenes the question is will progress be made on those issues will more stumbling blocks be created. president putin and a german chancellor merkel are among the sixty high profile figures expected to attend the commemorations set to take place throughout the weekend the main memorial event will be on the eleventh of november the date of the shooting stopped

at the arctic in the french capital. whose nations were enemies during the conflict earlier held hands together at the site where the armistice to ending the war was signed on friday the british prime minister joined in honoring the fallen soldiers of the great war in which more than fourteen million people were killed. president trump has had his say over a c.n.n. journalist accused of inappropriate behavior out of white house press conference he defended a twitter posting that apparently shows reporter jim acosta pushing the arm of an intern as he tries to ask the president follow up questions the u.s. is split over the issue with some claiming the video has been doctored in order to justify banning acosta from the white house a video was posted by trump's press secretary sarah sanders and shows a close up version of events seen in claims acosta never actually touched the in turn and called the whole incident
8:06 pm
a threat to democracy here is how the situation at the presser unfolded. one of the statements that you made in the tail end of the campaign do we go honestly i think you should let me run the country you run c.n.n. all right and if you didn't well your ratings let me ask you that's an ask one of the other folks that stood out for me ma'am i miss resident that's enough was president the other folks that stood out for me ma'am you are a rude terrible person. was this an inappropriate action aggressive or was it simply an accident well the answer to that depends what side of the political spectrum that you're on liberals and defenders of c.n.n. say that acosta did nothing wrong jim acosta clearly never touched that white house intern that's just a lie and what i saw was a battery not by jim acosta but by that young white house aide if you can use a fake video use a fake video should go all the way do something like this. guy. but
8:07 pm
conservatives are rounding in on a cost accusing him of being violent practically shoving a woman who is just trying to do her job it just is it crosses a line you don't put your hands i don't want him a cost to sort of wrestling this young white house intern the video was posted originally by paul joseph watson who is the editor in chief of the right wing news outlet no one is in for wars now paul joseph watson defended himself and said that he simply zoomed in and that the quality of the video had gone down due to the re uploading it isn't doctored it isn't sped up it isn't slowed down all i did was look at it again is this an example of someone don't ring to clip to change its meaning no it's virtually identical is it won't hundred percent identical no video compression is going to result in it looking marginally different so where is the truth americans are probably reminded of the famous dressed controversy in the photograph of one looked at it one way it was black and blue and another way it was
8:08 pm
white and gold depending on the eye of the holder or now we have a. whole rising video clip people look at it they see the same seconds of visual recording but interpret it completely differently it seems that as the political crisis escalates that americans literally no longer see things i try there's probably never been a better example of. how the american public is divided we're all looking at the same exact video but we're seeing what we want to see democrats are looking at that video and seeing jim acosta absolutely not coming not touching this in turn republicans are looking at it and saying he touched her he laid hands on her and i don't really think that's how we should be looking at it we should try to put our politics aside and just try to see what happened this is a press the press corps that's very hungry they don't get very many face to face chances to meet with the president as they did so they're all competing with each other the room is big you know all their bosses want them to get
8:09 pm
a question and so it's not surprising that there's a scrum here. fighting continues in the key yemeni port of who did as the saudi led coalition attempts to wrest control of the city from the brother. u.n. says thousands of people are trapped in the besieged area the intensified fighting comes despite warnings from aid groups about a humanitarian catastrophe there denies any deliberate targeting of civilians u.n. earlier issued a warning that children in the area are at imminent risk of death. whole day to day very much on the frome lines of a brutal war a brutal war against children children have already suffered three men this need continue doing so so any escalation of the conflict affecting all day
8:10 pm
will have brutal consequences not only for the hundreds of thousands of children here in the whole day who may be called in the middle of the conflict but will have consequences for the millions of children throughout yemen who are counting on the supplies coming in through who day to help them to survive the un also states that thirty thousand children die every year in the country from malnutrition describing the conflict as a living hell saudi arabia which has been leading the deadly campaign against who the rebels there since two thousand and fifteen says they are trying to reduce civilian deaths the kingdoms of foreign ministry even posted on twitter that they stand for the children of yemen but the message has backfired as our comments just so you know children in yemen some of whom have never seen peace in their life
8:11 pm
are not alone says who saudi diplomats on twitter but something seems to be wrong with the photo op and that tweet probably because the reality for most children there looks more like this. or this there's more let's go back to what was under the photo it says your children are children is this really how you treat your children. these were the pictures now to some of the things that have been said by the u.n.
8:12 pm
children's fund experts in yemen every ten minutes a child dies from a disease that can easily be prevented yemen is one of the it was places to be as china is right now because he's the or the number of children minorities two million and the number of two that and that don't have access want the same with access to. the u.n. says since march twenty fifth being saudi led coalition air strikes have killed around thirteen hundred yemeni children and injured roughly the same number as unlikely as it sounds saudi arabia has actually yemen's biggest humanitarian daughter with hundreds of millions of dollars worth of aid this year alone just like an abusive partner who picks up the medical bills no wonder folks online didn't really by the way saudi diplomats are standing with yemen are these the
8:13 pm
children you plan to drop bombs on next should that not read we stand on yemen just imagine the tweet of the nazi foreign ministry on september nineteenth thirty nine saying we stand with poland that's crazy. there may be people within saudi arabia who certainly feel for the plight of yemenis at the moment and the best way that could be shown in real terms rather than with pastas is if the bombing campaign on yemeni families stopped if we saw that then i would find it much easier to believe that there is sincere concern for the safety and lives of women and children there is no question that this significant contributions to the humanitarian plan made by saudi arabia and the u.a.e. this year have been well received by the humanitarian community without that money we wouldn't have been able to pull it together with all the funds from other countries and reach people with eight however this is not a you break it you buy it sort of arrangement that money doesn't come close to
8:14 pm
absolving the saudi led coalition of the of responsibility for the number of deaths being caused the illness and the long term damage being done to yemen as a country still to come this hour we look up the deadly wildfires devastating california that's after a short break your. during
8:15 pm
the past thirty years lebanon has been subject to six invasions from israel. six invasions. practically every. five years we are having. one and this is definitely the kind of see the helpless. are welcome back this is art international law from moscow now the syrian army says it has rescued over a dozen hostages from islamic state during a military operation you know the city of palmira the captives had been held for
8:16 pm
over three months but now have returned home. other terror groups are also present in the war torn country and some of them even have access to informed funding a recent report has revealed that u.s. aid money is actually lining the terrorists' own pockets as are his but our guys they have comments american taxpayer money cash that is almost wholly in the u.s. mindset inviolable money but has seen politicians jailed for the slightest misuse is ending up in the hands of al qaeda in syria now that's
8:17 pm
a sick twisted if anything a new report has found that medians medians of dollars in aid to syria has been funneled to terrorists since late twenty seventeen u.s. agency for international development office of the inspector general investigation have uncovered numerous instances of possible or confirmed diversions to armed groups in government in northwestern syria including hayat time of year al sharm a designated foreign terrorist organization. to the. h.g.s. nusra front they have many names in short as wing in syria facts of the matter that they were benefiting from u.s.
8:18 pm
taxpayer money it's no surprise everyone. billions traveling through northern syria have to pay to pass checkpoints beads and money in goods this is been a fact for years it's business one of the terrorists' main sources of funding worst of all it is assumed that these jihad lists have been able to infiltrate put their people in a humanitarian organizations from which they siphon money and aid to further their malign cause one investigation found that in n.g.o.s employees knowingly diverted thousands of u.s. aid funded food kits worth millions of dollars to ineligible beneficiaries including ten year old sean fighters the report itself is light on names and numbers perhaps for political reasons the fallout here could seriously damage and
8:19 pm
geo operations all we know is that millions of dollars in cash and in aid have been funneled to al qaeda in syria and that's just what they've admitted found that funding has now been terminated but it's very interesting in this report is that the u.s. aid watchdog does not name the n.g.'s now of course one of those primary n.g.o.s will be the white house probably one of the most primitive. and i can i and these are n.g.o.s and he's working on the ground in syria basically providing the prostate cancer and the corporation of the regime change current policy surely the year i should first of all be left on economic sanctions and it should be if it's necessary be cooperating with the syrian government to provide aid to the areas where it's most needed i don't expect this to happen irregardless it's a sick and a sad joke on the american taxpayer trillions of their hard earned money spent on
8:20 pm
the war on terror originally on defeating al qaida. and all the while they've been paying to feed and finance those very same jihad this. massive what wildfires in california have claimed the lives of at least eleven people and been branded the most devastating in the u.s. state's history you can see live pictures right now more than two hundred fifty thousand people have been forced to flee their homes as the fast moving blazes that raged through different areas of fire you can see some images of one of the fires right there going up through the hills reports say that the fires have destroyed the city of paradise and burned thousands of houses to the ground firefighters are working around the clock to contain the fires but say that they're concerned that intense winds and low humidity could fuel them further. all right switching gears now the online encyclopedia with the pedia may be the go
8:21 pm
to resource to end your quiz night disputes but just how much of the content is actually correct or to go to the dawn of has more now on the site's inner workings . we keep pedia is a free encyclopedia based on a model of openly editable contant the largest and most popular general reference work on the world wide web this is the definition of we keep pedia on wikipedia wiki p.t. is very different from something like blogs or trying to be an encyclopedia trying to be a really solid stable kind of place ironically the founder of wikipedia is one of the few people who sees the encyclopedic value of his creation the openly editable bases of wikipedia is turning out to be more of a curse than a blessing according to a new study by m.i.t. in a third of article disputes editors can't agree with each other major issues include
8:22 pm
poorly articulated initial arguments excessive bickering during discussions and simple lack of interest from third party editors because topics may be too easy for instance some users who are very passionate about corn apparently have been fighting over this article for at least a decade which is hardly a surprise because forget anything as complicated as corn the world still can't agree on the simplest simplest things like what date it is and come on america the whole month day here thing makes zero sense let me just get it out there on behalf of the rest of the world and you're welcome but silly disputes are far from the biggest problem we could pedia is facing over it's open a debilitating there are firms that will help you get your story out there for a modest fee like this company with a straight forward name we keep our investigative journalist helen by necessity
8:23 pm
says it manages hundreds of sockpuppet pedia accounts which quietly added pages to favor the firms thousands of clients sock puppets are basically fake accounts that are. run by one person but pretend to be multiple people so if there's a disagreement you want to have other people come out come in and take your side because it's in that way it's there is some sort of democratic element to it but the wiki p.r. skinless mostly because they were very openly advertising their services on this website but private firms are not the only entities with a story to sell the us government cares in a big way about what people on the internet right about it especially on wikipedia in two thousand and seven for example the cia and f.b.i. work used to sing articles about the u.s. invasion of iraq guantanamo bay and the page on one former cia chief the cia by the way didn't confirm the claims but kind of didn't deny them either and it's pretty
8:24 pm
easy to do that as far as outsourcing the third party it is pig guy and they were just being so obvious about it i mean they thought all is anonymous anybody can do it let's just edit it from our work computers and wherever that's like really bad upset that we one thing if it was disconcerted by a source like just sort of a trash read that the bathroom wall of the internet i like to call it. but it's not it's considered this sort of holy oracle of truth and it's really anything but and the reason why everyone wants to have their say and we compete is obvious it is indeed a universal reference to regardless of its actual reliability apples and amazons voice assistant siri and alexa draw information from the for their results as do some research is lazy journalists and students with the term paper do overnight and whoever throws more dollars into the furnace effectively has we compete in their pocket and by transitivity anyone who blindly trusts it. all right you're watching
8:25 pm
