western news reports claim a globally acclaimed russian series is trying to influence young millions. reports . that little sweetheart was matia from the cartoon in the bear originally russian the series has been translated into dozens of languages and won the hearts of millions across the globe but it turns out there may be a sinister side to the enduring little girl and her protective hat with me trying to. write me. right. now what russia has forgotten to mention there is that some cartoons are in fact evil putin propaganda yep according to a times u.k. article moshe is just another putin puppet. russia is funny steep. but also
3:07 am
a plucky she punches above her weight is no fun face to see. and i honestly don't know who should be more offended by that comparison so where's the evidence of the kremlin's influence well critics seem to be particularly worried about one scene and a single episode or moshe's seen wearing a soviet border guards hat. apparently that's meant to be a statement on russia's defense of its borders but even if we say that's true what kind of kid would pick up on that but hey it's best to start when they're young right the studio behind this propaganda masterpiece of course denies being influenced by the kremlin's hand saying they received no state funding but we did a bit of digging and found some ominous signs you simply can't ignore here comes the kremlin for all of two seconds. that could easily be interpreted as a soviet red star disguised as an innocent christmas decoration and you may not
3:08 am
realize it but the weird hat that must have got on here is a traditional russian hat now i know those examples aren't so much propaganda as they are just random russian things but that's all we could prime but worry not it turns out the bear itself is a representation of russia as a whole you see bear you think russia right. the base symbolizes russia it's a fact it's a struggle for the minds part of a hybrid explosion in which a negative image of russia is replaced by a positive oh the horror the horror now you know what your children are being exposed to and can protect them accordingly. the bear are not coming to invade your homeland masha and the band is hybrid war that. is british empire apologist
3:09 am
and who sums up american decadence bits of. my nephews are watching my shins a very cute they don't seem to be particularly indoctrinated. i really really do not want to read more about how masha in the back is putin is propaganda. i can confirm that i watched two episodes of march and there when i was nine and i suddenly became a twitter party speaks russian. another issue generating a lot of column inches today facebook soprano mark zuckerberg is on the pressure from the firm's investors who want him to step aside charmin their patience is wearing thin following a series of scandals over the past year which have plagued the social media behemoths. facebook is behaving like it's a special snowflake it's not it is

a company and companies need to have a separation of chair and c.e.o. that concentration of power creates a lot of defensiveness within the company it's an exercise in hyden that there is a problem rather than admit in that there is a problem and set in the roadmap to fixing it. the latest headline grabbing scandal to hit facebook a run in with billionaire philanthropist george soros. explains. things are not going well for mark zuckerberg he's been involved at facebook in a wave of scandals involving privacy violations and data leaks and now protesters are outraged. by. facebook our mission is to give people the power to build communities and bring the world closer together more than two billion people come to our platform each month to stay connected with friends and family facebook is taking issue with

a protest sign for trying the zuck as an octopus with tentacles spreading all over the world they say that that imagery is anti-semitic however facebook had no problem playing the same card against the protesters they even hired a p.r. firm facebook employed republican opposition research firm to discredit activists protest is in part linking them to the liberal finance you know george soros it also tapped his business relationships lobbying at your civil rights group to cause some criticism of the company's anti semitic yeah blame it on george soros the liberal billionaire known for splashing money on liberal causes now he's certainly no fan of facebook do you didn't get that moment it is not. new word. to protect society accused of constant criticism of. debtors you know into amanda's. davies and i'm no good but here's the irony
3:12 am
when it came out that facebook was accusing soros of being the master manipulator behind the protesters soros then accused of facebook of anti-semitism you know they're also aware that much of this hateful and blatantly false and semitic information is spread via facebook the notion that your company you'll direction actively engaged in the same behavior is frankly astonishing to me zuckerberg says that he's got nothing to do. the soros claims the p.r. firm was hired without his permission now they've been fired he says he has nothing but total respect for soros and billionaire to billionaire now the company does admit they did investigate soros connections to the protesters however they say it's got nothing to do with his jewish heritage to suggest this was an anti semitic attack is reprehensible and untrue both soros and zuckerberg say that the other guy is motivated by ethnic bigotry the same kind of ethnic bigotry to boot is your mind blown it should be able pop and r.t.
