i run the clock across the world this is our t. international from the team and myself you know neal a little welcome to the program our top story u.s. health authorities are advising against the use of the johnson and johnson vaccine after 6 recipients in the country developed blood clots the american company now say's it is aware of the rare disorder decided to delay the vaccines rule out in europe. johnson and johnson have described this as a proactive delay to their vaccine being rolled out across the european union they had expected that they would be giving vaccines to people 'd by the end of this week however that is not going to happen it follows
a move by regulators in the united states to suspend the use of the vaccine there the move follows regulators in the united states suspending the use of the vaccine there after the 6 people who had the vaccine developed what was called a rare blood clotting disorder now it's worth pointing out this is 6 people out of the around 6800000 doses that have been handed out already in the united states and $9000000.00 doses of the johnson and johnson vaccine have been exported to countries around the world already the company has said that this proactive delay is purely precautionary out of an abundance of caution the city see an f.d.a. have recommended a pause in the use of our vaccine in addition we've been reviewing these cases with european health authorities we have made the decision to proactively delayed the rollout of our vaccine in europe but this news comes after the european continent
has passed a grim milestone on monday the $52.00 countries that make up the european landmass passed $1000000.00 cova deaths in total now in the european union the 27 member states there they're paying close attention to what's happening when it comes to this johnson and johnson suspension the vaccine program in europe of course hasn't been well particularly successful at least certainly not particularly quick and there's a lot of criticism of it here in germany the talk has been less about vaccines and more about lockdowns in particular who has the power to lock down german chancellor angela merkel wants to have more power to do just that the way it works. in the german constitution as the chancellor can say we all should be doing this but ultimately it's up to the 16 states that make up germany to decide individually how they are going to implement measures that have been decided from the top well what angle or merkel wants to be able to do is to have more power to not just be able to
say this is what we should be doing but to say this is what you are doing when. the uniform national right emergency brake is over do you because even though it's difficult to hear this again the situation is serious and all of us have to take it seriously well the idea of 'd taking power away from the local authorities and giving it to lynn hasn't gone down well with some germans. i think it's nonsense on a national level complete nonsense the region should decide for themselves and to put the whole country in lockdown a curfew i think is completely exaggerated. and at the end of the day i think these measures sol coming but too late i think it's also a bit of a served on to them i mean the state has spoiled so often in many places especially in the area of testing creating testing capacity and so on as if in this country well i think it's terrible when one person here decides what we have to do and what
we don't have to do that's very very scary for me. the move has to be voted through the bundestag parliament here in germany there's no exact time frame set for that just yet but those in the know talking about it happening before the end of this week. but seen ter ism is on the rise and fall trying rouleau it's distrust in certain jobs we follow one french prince trip all the way to moscow to get the sputnik chair to have later. a 2nd day of race riots in the u.s. state of minnesota has seen national guard troops deployed to the city of brooklyn center. how. hundreds gathered outside the local police station in violation of a curfew which being imposed those the demonstrations grew more and more violent
several areas were looted and protesters threw concrete blocks at officers reportedly leaving at least one injury police this burst the crowd firing tear gas and flush grenades a state of emergency has also been declared people to rallied in new york washington d.c. and portland on monday to demand justice for a don't say right he was fatally shot by police on sunday after attempting to flee a traffic violation stop sparking anger on the streets. they call them over who have the problem of hanging from the war or. was i think a little i. think. my brother in law why because they were. the bottle.
rockets and other objects thrown at the police department there were reports of shots fired in the area of the police department. was a little what all of the all of the evolved out of all of the. the model home. of former police officer dominic is otoh list the incident shows there are serious problems within the force. this is either bad training or this is
a scared police officer story the problem i'm going to have for me personally as you're going to see a lot of lives supporters who are going to be jumping to the aid of this police officer saying that it's a high stress circumstance we don't know what she was thinking we'll you q.q. can mistake this was this was this was a or if this was absurd to go to a pistol have it in your hands. obviously have tunnel vision on the suspects how you can mistaken mistakenly grab your pistol instead of your taser after you have had training that makes no sense to me whatsoever you use your hands usually at that taser has been proven over and over and over again to be not a complete tool and that's going to wind up helping the scene out and it is just done this is put more cops under the false a false security that a tool is going to replace words and physicality and this is a problem. president putin held
a phone conversation with his american counterpart joe biden among the topics the 2 leaders the sky where the recent escalation in tensions in east ukraine and nuclear weapons or more specifically the bilateral strategic arms reduction treaty known as start artie's chuckling booga can tell us more. tensions have remained high between the 2 countries sense biden took office promising to take a tougher stance on russia but the 2 had a phone conversation today where the possibility of a summit was proposed in order to build what washington called a stable and predictable relationship with russia apart from that they had on a number of global and security issues including the tension surrounding ukraine and expressed concerns over reports of a larger. russian military buildup on the border with ukraine calling on russia to deescalate the situation apart from that according to a press release from the white house biden also warned that the u.s. will act firmly in defense of its interests again bringing up accusations of
election meddling and cyber attacks but in a more reassuring sign the desire to build on the start treaty which of course was the arms treaty between the 2 countries that was called into question for quite a while their desire to build on that was also expressed during that phone call. news or a failure to fuck chick those are the accusations moscow is leveling out c.n.n. that's a broadcast footage claiming to show russia bolstering its military presence along the border with ukraine now russia's foreign ministry was quick to point out some clear errors. for the teachers emerged of columns like this one. and of military hardware being transported by rail towards the border. do c.n.n. and its friendly team we understand that you have no time for fact checking they
are so deeply involved into the ideological struggle for the triumph of liberalism but not that deep to present ukrainian tanks at a ukrainian station with a ukrainian train behind as the background for russia preparing for war. ok let's go through some of but the real way station you can see here which c.n.n. said is in russia is actually in eastern ukraine in the 4th largest city of the napper you can see the same roof by the way i columns in this photo of the station asked for the train here well it supports the blue and yellow livery of ukrainian trains on the side of a cartridge you can see this a ukrainian insignia asked for the tanks moving past in the footage well there are a salvi a euro type still in widespread service i run the world in fact several years ago the previous ukrainian president published video of a similar tank in action it was at the end of last month the situation in the
conflict zone known as the donbass region once again began to escalate ukraine the self-proclaimed republics of dunya and lugansk blame each other for intensifying military activities in the year the same time kiev very accused moscow of increasing its military presence near the border the kremlin responded by stating it can do what it wants within its own boundaries meanwhile c.n.n. has no deleted the photo of the times from its websites although the video report can still easily be found online we have contacted the network asking for its response to the story well let's get our own response some reaction to this to speak to legal and media alist line good to have you on the program and let me be let me be. nice to see in it's not easy to verify photo
or a photo is that the case here is that the best possible scenario for them. it's pathetic it is journalistic malpractise nonfeasance misfeasance there is no excuse to get the the only innocent 2 parties to get them correct i mean this is the they should be if this was the real world they should be horrified heads should roll but you know what's going to happen. nothing nobody cares you know why and this is very interesting because it's c.n.n. they're ineptitude is their excuse it's their their kevil are their their their. i guess their immunity go to c.n.n.
they're a joke what do you want it c.n.n. so if they had to to run corrections for everything that they've said that was incorrect they would have a separate 24 hour channel running the corrections i think that clears it up i hope . well we have spoken about it before haven't weighed the networks to seem pretty king to push their nor it's halves is there a danger not only the fundamental basics of journalism are being put to the side but they're being put to the side so often that the middle ground the balance is just going to be forgotten about. when you make a mistake of buying. a sports score which i think many sports enthusiasts would find that be problematic that's one thing but when you get the players in correct involving what is and could be warring factions
and you literally geddit. backwards or incorrect when you are describing what is war i mean you know there was a difference in our history from let's say the japanese attacking pearl harbor vs the germans or the americans attacking pearl harbor things like that matter getting the actual participants of pugilistic events correct that pretty quickly i can't think of anything more critical than that and then you have to ask this question if they're getting that wrong something a vat grave nature think of the little things they're getting wrong and you're paying absolutely no way tension to me this is this is pathetic but i'm
telling you my dear friend we're wasting our time they're not going to say thing about those because they're c.n.n. well that's what they do that's my point was going to be. just kneeled on the implications the ramifications that this could have but is there a sliding scale about errors how big does the inaccuracy have to be before people take note or even pushbike. well it depends if i'm a lawyer by profession and i would say that we would look at it if people were to take action because of that you were talking before about here and i country where there is rioting seems like every week over some a vent involving the police officers. now let's see if i can make it even easier for my fellow americans what if they were to get the story wrong and falsely claim that somebody was shot by a police officer when in fact the bully's officer was shot look at what happens
that that's just in one city i mean multiply that by whatever the exponential factor is and explain war you know there was a time my friend when this was an honorable profession when there was prissie jand when you you you should war fealty to the truth and that people would be fired and they would be forever shamed to get this wrong and what do we have today opes my bad never mind it's horrible we're actually going to be in 5 years from now because when the malignancy tends to get bad when this idiocy becomes methods static what you're going to be in the future are we just going to say well kind of approximate the truth it's that serious and i'll thank you as always line illegal and media analysts life from new york city. thank you sir. washington secured agreements
with mexico honduras and guatemala under which those countries pledged to deploy troops to their respective borders in a bid to slow migration to the united states now the move comes amid reports that by the administration is also considering hunting are kurdish to the central american states to stop the influx critics though argue the money would be better spent on americans in need of home scale if not been reports. with 170000 people picked up along the u.s. border just last month the migrant crisis is rapidly spinning out of control and the biden administration is scrambling to deal with it. 8 8 8 at the end of the. earth.
and the current plan dollars and lots of them in the form of foreign aid president biden wants to try and buy a way out of his border crisis with taxpayer money the administration is spending $60000000.00 a week and now wants to launch a cash transfer program in central america this insults millions of americans who are out of what can a country the plan is for billions of dollars to go to guatemala honduras and el salvador now it's not exactly clear how this is going to work but the white house insists it won't be just direct cash payments to potential migrants is one thing i can promise you is the u.s. government isn't going to be handing out money checks to people let's not forget that back in 2009 the usa worked to topple the government of honduras ushering in a decade of instability and chaos let's also remember that water has had various
u.s. backed military regimes so what exactly led to this stampede toward the u.s. border the trail goes straight back to the white house the united states is moral leadership on refugee issues was a poor in a bipartisan consensus for so many decades when i 1st got here we shine a light a lamp a lot of liberty an oppressed people were offered safe havens for those slain violence or persecution and our example pushed other nations to open wide their doors as well it's not exact. clear what the end goal is and there's not really a record of success here foreign aid to us aligned regimes in central america that have free market economies is certainly not a new concept in fact the u.s. state department has been showering the region with money for decades $750000000.00 was provided to central american countries between 20142017 now the stated goals of all that foreign aid was roughly the same as what biden is proposing and people
remained poor desperate and they continued fleeing 2019 donald trump took the dramatic move of halting u.s. aid so can we continue to just throw money at a problem and expect it to eventually be solved biden will soon be celebrating his 100th day in office and he's got a major crisis on his hands with no end in sight they look up and ard see new york . another story we're closely following today japan's government has announced its plumbing to dump contaminated water from the fukushima nuclear power plant into the pacific ocean more than a 1000000 tons will be released now the process will only begin some 2 years time is expected to take decades to complete the water will be filtered diluted to reportedly safe levels 1st know the move has provoked from you bring countries. despite doubts and opposition from home and abroad japan has unilaterally decided to release the fukushima nuclear waste water into the sea before exhausting all
safe ways of disposal and without fully consulting with neighboring countries and the international community this is highly irresponsible and will severely affect human health and the immediate interests of people in neighboring countries. on the japanese government's decision is absolutely unacceptable the decision to release the fukushima tank water into the scene not only threatens the safety of neighboring countries and the marine environment but also as a measure unilaterally decided without sufficient discussion agreement with our country which is the nearest neighboring country. the sastre at the fukushima nuclear power plant struck in march 27th when a powerful earthquake hit japan's east coast that led to a massive tsunami which triggered one of the worst nuclear catastrophes or record so far the plant still not being completely decontaminated the way the government
plans to tackle the issue has received flak including at home but people have rallied outside the prime minister's office calling on the government to reverse its decision strongly opposed to tokyo's plans they don't waste water into the sea if the japanese fishing industry the fear trace radioactivity contaminating fish which then ends up on people's plates. my 3 sons will followed in my footsteps and a fisherman if they contaminated water is discharged into the sea how can they make a living in the future i strongly oppose the decision to dump the waste water into the ocean. i'm in shock i'm originally from fukushima and so i think i feel it more i'm very shocked i do not wish a tool for it to be released into the sea logical. when the disaster happens you. had to have to treat the area through decontamination but then don't food to spread the contamination further after the disaster. well the japanese government stands
by its this is in tokyo claims it is the only feasible way to tackle the consequences of the 2011 disaster in the country the support of the u.s. the international atomic energy agency which sees the waste water will be treated using internationally accepted technologies. anybody can get answers from the white house it seems that after an online impostor mohnish to dupe journalists into putting their questions to joe biden spokesperson artie's dimitri polk explains just what happened. have you ever wondered who gets to ask the questions at the white house well for channels like r t or independent journalists it's practically impossible instantly you get accusations of being propaganda fake news and so on bake news that's being spread by russia or to you which is the hulu supported. funded by the russian or the russian government fake means has dominated the true had lines fake
news spread by russia fake news fake news kremlin spread misleading or otherwise fake news of course they explain it as holding up journalistic standards or something like that well ok so just how high are these standards well just for yourself an online game or manage to get in for questions to jen psaki biden's press secretary by just pretending to be a white house reporter a few fake twitter handles that's all it took the gamer who was real identity is still unknown created a profile as casey leggo montagu who pretended to be a reporter for a non-existing news agency called white house news several white house officials even followed her on twitter montagu then asked credentialed reporters in the white house press room so a pass on her questions because she couldn't make it there to code the regulations and stuff like that and they did no credentials no background check nothing and
this laziness or incompetence or whatever you want to call it on the part of the white house press team is exactly what led montague to do all this in the 1st place i love journalism and i think the press corps is doing a pretty bad job at the moment so i decided i would ensure some transparency and ask some questions me and some friends wanted the answer to and she's not the only one fed up with real journalists ever since biden circa office the pres briefings in the white house have turned into a game of softball a police compared to the way the media behaved during the true. but ministration back then everyone suddenly had a sense of journalistic duty to ask the hard questions and grill the administration over everything and anything this president like go ahead you think candidate we're going to question bill president like can you give us a closer view or did anything else can you give us a question don't be rude you know he doesn't want you to i mean i've got to give you an illustration you speak out of your fake dues but you know if i mean that's
one of the course of this president for me i don't know how are you worried i should know that sort of president i think that's and that's one of the other folks that stood up for you that's enough put down the mike was president are you worried about indictments coming down in the supposed. but with biden's team it's a snooze fest screened questions scripted answers no accountability and a lot of circling back we will circle back with you if there's more to update you on that we'll have to take that question to you and circle back with you circle back on that one that's an excellent question i don't have any information in front of me both are excellent questions and the 1st one i should have information on but i'll have to follow up with you on both of them i don't believe we have outlined that yet let me we can follow up with you if there's a specific timeline that we're putting out publicly at this point. so it's no surprise that even regular people are getting tired of this all and even going as far as getting their own questions into the white house because hey if you have the proper twitter angle that's apparently all it takes to become
a white house approved journalist these days. stuttering vaccination programs doto but some of the jobs on offer have led to a rise in fact seen tourism among europeans some of traveled here to russia to be inoculated. micha do flow is a lawyer from leon and he has his own opinion about the vaccine situation holes will mean there aren't currently enough vaccines in france and not everyone can get vaccinated where they want to without waiting 1st of all i don't trust the vaccines offered to us whether it's the american vaccine or britain's astra zeneca they don't fill me with confidence so why i chose the russian sport nick v. jab which i think is much safer and more effective. the russian vaccine has not yet been approved by the european medicines agency so it's not in fronts and that's something to flow is not too happy about stores or great could be i regret that my country france is denying its citizens access to the sport make
a vaccine for reasons unrelated to health or medicine so if support nick doesn't fly to me i'll fly to get it out of access while on a business trip to moscow to flow decided to get inoculated against coronavirus he didn't seem nervous before getting his long awaited job. no i'm not concerned i might have been more worried if it was a different vaccine i won't name it but in france it's being heavily criticized now in this case i might have been more afraid. however maître do flow things is still a long way to travel for an injection but on them can force a new monkey despite the fact that there is a vaccine shortage in france they have to decide who should get vaccinated 1st switch also shows that we don't have enough those says even though there is a vaccine available it's their choice and i think that this is a criminal choice because despite his technology and experience france has not developed its own vaccine never really i really regret that we're in this situation
i think it's because france no longer has the scientific potential to develop such things with a country of the scientists past may and go on to really change the health situation in the world for the better and today we're lagging behind france is the only member of the u.n. security council that has not developed its own vaccine. due flu will get the 2nd sputnik 3 job in 3 weeks during his next trip then he can go home with one less thing to worry about. all right time to dig beneath the business headlines next the latest been bus gets going in moments stay with us for that.
