office for comments on this story we'll let you know when they are up. why. in a groundbreaking ruling in australia google has been ordered to unmask the identity of an online user who posted a damning review of a dentist the anonymous reviewer warned a teeth whitening service was extremely young comfortable the dentist says his business was affected as a result but google initially refused to take down the comments the dentist's lawyer says though that reputation should not be unfairly damaged. i believe it's extremely unfair that people are allowed to anonymously attack honest hardworking small businesses we think google has a juicy of casual straightly and small businesses and business is globally for allowing these reviews to go on this ruling is groundbreaking google has historically argued that it is not responsible for user generated content and design to taken down negative posts when ordered to do so by the courts under

strain law businesses with fewer than 10 employees can see one of the statements that could damage a company's reputation well r.t. has reached out to google to comment on this case and they haven't replied we will has already faced a number of similar cases in this trailer just this month the barrister was awarded half a $1000000.00 over online comments claiming he gave false and also misleading advice and then in july last year the tech giant was faced with a contempt of court charge for failing to remove reviews about a high profile sydney businessman we put the whole issue up for debate. this guy had one negative review and this is how he wants to get the courts involved you want to put this in google you want to sue the guy i mean just take care of your own business right it's sort of ridiculous and this is also a massive slippery slope how long if we keep up this culture until you're no longer allowed to criticize google itself or if you do you're some other massive corporation i'm also offer free speech but you know it's given people

a mask to hide behind. they're not taking responsibility for what's being posted and they are hurting innocent people and this is becoming way too widespread dentist to be comes up is foolish it's a bit unhinged if he thinks it's a good idea to be going after a troll on the internet now when someone's looking for a dentist their neighborhood they might google this guy and think do i want to go to the guy who's bringing the courts down on the troll on the internet or maybe i'll go to the dentist on the street instead now i don't agree i think that you know we are in an environment right now that's so divisive and there's these people out there they just love to hate and they're just looking for something and i would be the 1st person to walk in and get teeth whitening from this dentist based on this because i feel very bad for what happened to him and i think we're just in an environment where we have to find a way to make people own the things that they're going to post that this is a prob that sort of the free market and just basic social etiquette is all that

itself because when you have someone anonymous on the internet they automatically are not taken as seriously as someone who's putting themselves out there i actually have faith in my fellow man that man and woman that they're smart enough and discerning enough to know when something seems a bit off and to know it's anonymous that maybe you don't take that person as seriously i would love to have faith in people and say you know that we're going to police ourselves and that it's going to stop this problem one of the problems that we have is we have this whole mentality of fake news and this cancel culture where you can completely ruin someone over a personal agenda the longer that we allow people to hide behind their screens and be keyboard warriors the more this is spinning out of control but we have to find a way to control this the only way to do it is have validated profiles where people have to actually post who they are and there has to be some way to validate it there is a huge problem with defamation with people being have their lives destroyed on the internet but if you start trying to regulate all of this regulation and all of the

sports it only goes in one direction but the one power these companies anymore they have so much power why don't we just all. on the side maybe we don't need to read these reviews on google maybe ask your your friends or family members say i need a dentist you got someone you could recommend maybe that's the way forward because the more we started with these vast complicated companies and the more regulation and speech it's it's such a spiral and they already have too much power to influence our lives anyway don't they. still to come here not filter of the top psychologist jordan pedersen tells us why he came to russia for medical treatment we'll have the story of the sting just off the break. when else chose seemed wrong. wrong just don't. let me.

welcome back now western doctors overprescribe drugs that's why one of the world's most renowned psychologist jordan paid to send went to russia for treatment according to his daughter she told r.t. 6 on a boyko that he's been undergoing detox treatment in this country after being misdiagnosed in several american hospitals. i've had hundreds and hundreds of people reach out telling me they've had the same experience with benzodiazepines so i think that there's a huge misunderstanding about the dangers of physical dependence regarding specifically this class of drugs north america the medical industry is heavily like wow if you go to medical school out of the courses you take are backed by the pharmaceutical companies part of the reason we thought russia was a good option is because the medical system here isn't as backed by pharmaceutical companies as it is in north america people who are meaning well go to med school

medical school and are perhaps taught by the wrong people and then end up over prescribing. a peterson that did no to that of the extreme reaction to being prescribed a high dose of anxiety pills she had to tell you that he almost lost his life but he's not recovering. it takes up the story. what is the price of living a life like that of jordan peterson a number of emotional breakdowns by the canadian who's become known as the world's top self-help guru have been caught on camera the other comes up to me and. said look i've been listening to what you've been seeing for 6 months and it's changed my life you started cleaning up my room and telling the truth just one of frank you for helping me you'd think a widely cited academic and author of a global bestseller explaining how to fix your life wouldn't have any problems with
12:21 pm
keeping his old in order but lately professor peterson's been in a real trouble with his health this is what his daughter has told us in 27 there was a really terrible auto immune reaction to it and he went to our family doctor and was prescribed and he took it for a number of weeks and then became physically dependent which we weren't aware of until earlier this year when my mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer his dose of and was increased and he realized he was experiencing not only a paradoxical reaction which is when the medication does the opposite of what it's supposed to but he had also become physically dependent so we're trying to get out he tried to get off of that number of time to end just experienced like horrific withdrawal so what's with this medication it's part of a family of drugs commonly known as minor tranquilizers it's generally viewed as

see if an effective for short term use but for long term that's when i add tom's real trouble kicks in and he was prescribed an anti-anxiety medication at a low dose it wasn't something that wrong any warning bells quickly remind you of who exactly jordan peterson is a professor of psychology at the university of toronto his speeches and interviews have attracted tremendous public attention. videos featuring jordan peterson are watched by millions online crowds as big as those that turn out for football matches gather to hear his lectures worldwide but just as much as he inspired some 57 year old professor embittered a full auto army of haters all because of his bid to challenge political correctness the man widely seen as a right wing celebrity is loathed by the left for things like once going against gender neutral pronouns so earlier this month peterson's daughter shocked his
12:23 pm
followers with this update on his health he's been in unbearable discomfort from the need worse when trying to remove their reaction made him suicidal the peterson family say they had a real hard time for finding a place for successful treatment choosing russia as a place to go for health treatment is this something somebody from north america one usually until we looked all over the world for someplace that was. a benzodiazepine talks we couldn't really find any place that would do that certainly not in north america coming here into detoxed was our last option really seems to be slowly recovering but will the man who try to hope mankind up with an antidote to chaos be able to find one for all the disorder in and around his own life we can watch the full interview with p. decision on will support on a website that are. now off to her defeat in the last us presidential

election hillary clinton is paid to step back from high level politics but she may be handed a surprise return to the limelight. love it doesn't mean he will resign a year after winning so hillary can take over by a back door to have the picks hillary as a v.p. running mate would significantly reduce their life expectancy man i would not want my life to be the only thing standing between hillary clinton and her presidency just see. we are focused on the primary and the debate not the peace speculation.
12:25 pm
i know hillary clinton is not flawless no candidate here but she is the right choice. it would be foolish to deny the rumor because because bloomberg has come in so bizarrely late to the campaign clinton is a more national figure than bloomberg is she has a much larger and level of name recognition she's known by many many more people what's especially telling is it shows the desperation of the democratic party to allow somebody to come in at this late and had the d.n.c. to try to push him to the front really turning the whole primary process into a joke i mean this is i mean this is nonsense you know come into the the entire presidential campaign process after major primaries have already happened mids it's it's bizarre so yes it is the exact type of long shot desperate type of thing that
