7:30 am
but like with any story, there's more to be told. and as you can imagine, one former president who could not resist wang in on is that this resignation guy know hughes and these stories are more on today's news views. let's get started. ah, we start today focused on the relationship between us president joe biden and u. k prime minister boris johnson. now both have recently found themselves and hot water at home bite and is continuing to suffer from record low approval numbers, mainly because of a trouble economy. continuing border crisis and continued lack of control over coven, just to name a few under his leadership. but while abide and has been a gradual downward trajectory, johnston saw the most dramatic drop in global liter approval ratings. in the month of january, according to the latest morning concept, paul, only 29 percent approval of the prime minister. a net loss of 36 percent off since
7:31 am
december. so why such a substantial loss and is this why the prime minister is parenting the bite and ministrations and narrative of an ominous invasion by russia that is discussed with my colleague actually in returns, a host of going underground here on r t. i thanks for joining me. thanks. good. even having milan, ashen, now, most of you and we all know the revelation regarding these 8 legit parties which happened at downing street during covey locked downs. how upset really though, are the british people by these gatherings and the prime minister attending and how far do you think the people are willing to push for accountability and punishment for those involved, including the prime minister himself? you know, critics of johnson compared it to al capone's being done to the tax evasion. all the other things, the u. k. prime minister, maurice johnson has done during his term is removal of free school lunches for the
7:32 am
poor. children in this country is presiding over one of the worst corrode of our depth tools in the world. the worst comes in and out, statistically in western europe in terms of death. so people are saying, why, why, why is it that policies? because it is very serious, because infamously, and it's been widely reported when the queen's husband died, she had to the pictures of a loan in a chapel. meanwhile, johnson stuff were all partying. and this offering, this to me, is it the british people's disgust and what they had to do and went through it with told to do my boss johnson joined corona virus. it's a cover up because we must remember johnson who is not to tell truth. he was fired from the barclay brothers, danny telegraph for a line. according to them. he said at the beginning,
7:33 am
there were no parties that he said, there were events that he didn't know about. that he said he went just. then he said he went to the body, but didn't know it was a body. this kind of chaos has led to, well within the past few hours, public don't see ations of him by m. p. 's on his own side and mainstream media here reporting that it could well trigger a lead ship contest which could lead to the end of his political grid. so obviously there could be some real accountability very soon, but in the present, from your observations, do you think this controversy is affecting other areas of leadership like johnson being one of the only leaders who are echoing biden's defense of ukraine. and the british people feel adamant about sending support ukraine if they, if they're called upon and what would that affect, be on the u. k. if you decided to get as active as the u. s. looks to be doing right now. well, what happened to it? limits, you just sort of that over the that word wordpress and you told her brother,
7:34 am
you told the british i haven't, i done that for boarding johnson to do his press secretary. well, i mean the, it's lock step here with the, the white house for us. johnson is saying he went to kiev and i mean wag, the dog was about, was covering the monica lewinsky scandal and the horrible destruction of al chief of medicine factory ensued dawn, killing so many people named people in africa. this is when the largest medicine factory reform, real trenton to get the media to stop talking about the oval office. so i mean, is it a case of wag the dog? well, petrol rusher is eminently about to invade, and at the same time, the russian se then also going to be made. and now you're telling me, jackie says that they're not going to be made. but at the same time, again in the last few hours. well that they're going to move thousands of troops
7:35 am
into european union countries all over the place to protect your up from, from the innovation that makes it mad as much sense as everything else as the past month and following the ukrainian process and what the u. s. is doing, but one thing is coming out and i don't know where this is coming from, but there's this criticism regarding the targeting of another network because of the reporting on these party saying that this is just boring johnson getting back at him. do you feel that that is actually accurate and i get it is one of our is the one of the competitions for our tea, but at the same time we call where we're eat fair balance. we key things equal. so do you think it is accurate? the abolishment of the bbc license, the in 2027 networks finding frozen for the next 2 years that they and this happened because they were reporting or joining in the reporting on these parties that boris johnson attended. well, it was, they were just laughed at in the image, it revelation after revelations and were coming out from his act consillio or
7:36 am
a who had a blog of parties. and corona virus, criminal alleged actions that he would then say, we're going to do this policy that policy, one of them being this idea, which was put up the flagpole of abolishing the statement. 80 british broadcasting corporation. that seems to have gone away to one extent. i'm not sure why he would be anti the bbc because arguably it's as supported the government did so many times whenever it comes to was famously it's director general to have to resign. so there were, was he trying to chase the story is to stop the media from covering this the scandal of a legit criminal a corona virus, violations. but i was the big one is ukraine. is that because now you have the leader of the opposition body, which i, i do the ins benefited greatly, themselves just benefited in the polls because of the destruction of, of johnson's, a whole lead in facts, against arma,
7:37 am
seems to have bankrupted the art labor bodies of jeremy, go over the ideas of that. the thing is, ukraine is, is that issue, and the b, b. c. of course, like other networks here are saying, you know, it's not so important about lying in office trust. corona, virus, dilation, scotland, yard inquiry. what's important is ukraine and russia? well, 2, and they're using i 3 actually, i think it's interesting. they used to call boris johnson trump 2 point. oh and, and he's actually more like bite and 2 point. oh, and he showing that right now and how he's handling his policies, both domestically and obviously on the foreign territories. well, always great to chat with you, my friend that gives guarding. while some countries continue to grapple with increasing coban 19 infection rates, other countries are scrapped, walk down measures and restrictions in getting back to normal life. r t. john, heidi has it the story the island of tundra and the south pacific announced he was
7:38 am
going into a nationwide locked down after several people tested positive for the cove in 1900 virus just weeks after being battered by a volcanic eruption and su nani island 1st closed its borders in 2020 and had only recorded one case of the virus. that is until now. but while tango maybe shutting down other countries are loosening up and even lifting their cove in 1900 restrictions, norway's prime minister announced his country as scrapping most of its remaining locked down measures. and just across the north sea, denmark became the 1st european union country to lift all of its coven 19 restrictions. with officials, they're saying the virus is no longer considered a quote, socially critical sickness. finland is also ending its coven restrictions. in switzerland. the government dropped its work from home order and quarantine requirements, and it's now reportedly considering lifting all remaining restrictions by mid february despite an increase in virus cases. this was present and said hospital,
7:39 am
i see use our stable though. thanks to the combined impact of vaccinations and the lower virulence of the micron. very and even going so far as to say the endemic phase may be approaching, but the director general of the world health organization warned not so fast. it's pre my tune for any country, either to surrender or to declare victory. this virus is dangerous, and it continues to evolve before are out very ice. he says the w h o is tracking for sub lineages of the micron variant, and that the w h l is quote, starting to see a varying worrying increase in death in most regions of the world. india, for example, report more than 300000 new cove in 1900 sections with just the 24 hour period back in january. and several european countries are still dealing with increasing numbers, including france, the u. k. italy and germany, for many coven restrictions, despite ongoing protests against them,
7:40 am
remain in place. but all that said, just this week, there was some very good news out of one country ravaged by cove in 1900 and it's variance. south africa, the government there said it's lifting. most of the remaining coven restrictions, thanks to the proportion of people with immunity to coven, 1900 rising substantially. and in fact, the government said 80 percent of south africans are either vaccinated or recovered from coven 19. with their blood sample shilling, high levels of antibodies for news use use john hardy for joining us now. please welcome a preamp gandhi mowdy. she is a policy and communication specialist who actually worked closely with indian primary certain no render mowdy. she's also author of a nation to protect leading india through the covey crisis. she's here to share insights on any experience to find the pandemic, and looking at the policies globally, including here in the united states. thanks for joining me. thank you for having me
7:41 am
. copy. ok, well, no 2 countries, as you probably have done, your research are exactly alike in india's unique situation to determine the shape of its coded response. but is there anything you think in india's model at the u. s . isn't doing which would possibly make us policy more effective? well, i can choose to get out of the kind of mostly depends on the leadership. and in that respect, movie kind of got it right from the get go right from the time dependent. he's been clear, the policy has been 5 years and he's been talking directly to the people of the country and he got other estimates there. so he offers trying to figure out before me, see any major policy decisions regarding and what kind of people and
7:42 am
flip flop on the major decision. so i see a very mock difference. there's a lot of solving as a leadership low where they start to kind of get right on consistency and common sense and trusting that you're people that you governed. i actually had the common sense to choose. so therefore they should have the common sense to want to be healthy is something that i think was lacking and a lot of the policy approaches to policy. but i want to look at the treatment. so i think there's also a difference. what is the india's main approach to treatment that might be different from what we had here in the us? sure, so we said it's very, very, it's in from united states, most have a general practitioner who's a doctor who is accessible. so they can get a phone call with
7:43 am
a doctor, they can even just text the doctor and just how most miles and moderate cases kind of got manage or they have to, you know, before they came to severe and has to meet, you know, have to go to the hospital. so that's where i feel the case is that we were able to manage patients right from the point of mine as well. and we're 2 years into this at this stage. and i want to want to take a moment to listen to what one state level legislature legislator in virginia, and he said about constituents and mask mandates in schools. universal masking is not preventing the spread of co, but it is actually causing unintended negative health consequences. in other countries, when they trained children to be a suicide bomber, do you know what they do?
7:44 am
they mask, they don't want children to learn to care about other people. and we are depriving our children of this on top of the educational impact. here in america, i think we've done a bad job of thinking about the other parts, the other health problems that will cause from some of these policies that they put in place just for code alone, forgetting what else could happen. did india do a better job? do you think of looking at the entire situation and what was really dangerous for kids? so yes, cool nation has been trying to kind of narrow the digital divide and try to make education accessible for kids. even though it's online, i feel that we should start pools because our biggest
7:45 am
in this really is really become a ship because so the schools in india are still closed. vaccination rates are very high. 90 percent of our eligible operation is fully reaching about 80 percent of fully vaccinated people. well, and i think it also comes down to here in america. we saw this issue. we saw koby become very politicized. and real quick to your point, did you see this become a political debating point in india as much as we've seen it here in the united states? so not so much. and again, i have to get credit to the prime minister. he, he kept and that whole guy vaccinations and he's left the politics out of it right from the beginning. he just said the experts and, you know, he's kind of just closer ears to political very well. i very
7:46 am
much appreciate you giving us all inside of how india has handled this. and once again, it's a global pandemic. the prompt united states is this all happened in an election year, which i think that actually hurt our response to it. and i give you a lot of kiddos for coming out with obviously what you feel like was a successful program. and it shows that in the numbers in india, thanks for joining me. now after a short break, a well known at network executive resigned. but it, it more about ratings in a relationship. and what could this mean for the entire network? what we're gonna discuss with our expert panel after the break with algorithms. neural networks have been following us everywhere. we look online because our relationships are what matters most us. that's how we find meaning. and how we make sense of our place in the silicon valley. see,
7:47 am
don't mention in that slick presentations. however, the ghost workers who train the software humans are involved in every step of the process. when you're using anything online. what we're sold as this miracle of automation behind your screen is around rouble work force that feeds algorithm is fun next to nothing. on a very good day, i could do $5.00 now. at a really bad day. i could do $0.10 now. use workers are invisible by design. it's about labor costs, but it's also about creating layers of lesson responsibility between those. melissa, this kind of work and need it, and those who do it. and as long as the humans are at the end of the day, is self interested, you can pretty well predict which way bitcoin is going. and the fact that nations will make it legal tender and now be a hash war going on in the house,
7:48 am
raised a sub boshoway she can. hi sharon, this is rob lee with yeah. betty latoya, this is judy with hold on. well, i mean kelly recording quote and i renewed my for my 2 year. sure. the public didn't get to. i learned that to me for she gave us times too much crappy ikea. i'm of fact not only, not that i'm looking for a family with you next year protection pushing, mom will proceed to get my stuff. the money that i can live with
7:49 am
. ah ah, the n n a well know network here in the united states and abroad. but now as ratings have revealed viewership is plummeting, or to correspond to touch sweet takes a look at the numbers. it's a rock star to the new year for cnn, after already seen a massive decline last year and ratings. they're now at an all time low. the poetry of that, if it happen, seeing in the ones trusted network internationally, is now seen a dramatic dip and ratings. according to nielsen, the 1st week of january of this year,
7:50 am
that cable network average 548000 viewers. as compared to 1270000 in the 1st week of january of 2021. 2020 was a good year for cnn was reported to be the most watched year ever since its opening date back in 1980 covered the riot that took the nation's capital by storm last year brought in viewership. but things took a turn this year, and on the one year anniversary of the riot coverage and then event did not produce the same result for cnn as it did initially. in fact, it did quite the opposite. nielsen reporting viewers actually flipping over to fox and it mustn't be c for the coverage was cnn simply to biased. the networks hatred for former president donald trump was no secret exchanges like this at the white house news conference is seemed to be the norm. when you report fake news, which he and, and does a lot, you are the enemy of the people. but even during its prime year of 2020 things worked perfectly. ah, in 2020,
7:51 am
during the george floyd protest, there was a demonstration outside of the scene and headquarters in atlanta, protesters vandalized the giant cnn sign and asked window, oh, recently last december in los angeles demonstrators, in support of the ethiopian government claimed, seeing i was providing viewers, false narrative about the great war. now cnn's international station is considered to be well known. 79 percent of people pulled. haven't heard of it, but the popularity of it ranking only 27 percent. according to you. gov. reporting for news news. hughes and hash a suite r t. so how much did the falling ratings have to do with jeff becker's resignation, or is it purely about failing to disclose an in house consensual relationship? and what does all this have to do with homo family? well, i know who to ask a very own host of either press evolve or investigate journalist ben swan. both of these men have spent their fair share type of time working for the networks. know
7:52 am
the broadcast industry. and i appreciate them coming on today to talk about this. you know, i want to start with this reasoning behind jeff suckers resignation and how this involves the comas, which i think that's the story or forget the personal side, leave that to the families. don't want to hurt the family. give obvious, already been through a lot. it's about journalistic ethics, i think is in question right now. been, can you give us all of the details of the ties between jeff allison gulas, who's the girlfriend who was the v p of marketing there at cnn and the coma family? yes. well apparently all of this started because of the ongoing investigation into chris cuomo, who by the way, is accused of, of having used his position to get information about women were coming forward about his brother, the governor of new york at the time. andrew cuomo and so you see, and it was doing an internal investigation, apparently, somewhere along the way. during that investigation, it was revealed that jeff sucker was having this relationship with a woman he had worked with for 20 years. it was a consensual relationship,
7:53 am
according to her, she made a separate statement by the way, she's not even the network. made a separate statement and said that, you know, this was something that happened during corona and happened during that the course of time, which by the way, is very interesting to me that these 2 are carrying on during corona whenever one supposed to be separated and see and is pushing for everyone to be mass did not be too close to each other. and yet of course, of course, at the very top, you know that the boss is having an affair. but the point i think of all this is i don't buy any of it. as jeff zucker is a good guy who stood up and said, hey, listen, i think that i didn't properly disclose this as per the rules of, of a t and t and cnn. and so because of that, i'm going to step down humbly. i don't believe that at all. i think the ratings are garbage, he knows or garbage. and this gave him an exit to try to look like a good guy. well, i don't know if he's looking like a good guy right now. but steve, in a statement decor set as part of investigation has been mentioned. it is all about cuomo in his tenure. he was asked about the relationship he was required to
7:54 am
disclose when it began, but he did it. here's where i have to put the time. i'd rather just let from his wife and 2018 at 21 years of marriage. do you feel like this is about saving the feelings of his wife and sure, because he told them that he was in the relationship, he just didn't tell when it started or do you think this is more about ties with the clothes and we just point out they actually met when she was communication well, when they were at the today show together. but also about when they, when she was, she was communication director for governor cuomo back in 2012, 2013. so there's a long history and long time between all and all 3 of them. which one do you think there could be any any? is this just a coincidence? a 1st of all, cuomo despises andrew cuomo, i'm sorry. chris cuomo despises, i believe cnn and jessica right now. the, the reason the lawyers are involved in all this is because they want to get paid for the time that he's no longer there. and i believe cnn doesn't want to pay him as full salary. so i remember reading of weeks ago that you know,
7:55 am
chris cuomo was willing to disclose a relationship and you know, possibly involving silk or if you didn't get his money. so it came up through chrome owes lawyers, you know, aggressively pursuing saying, hey, you say quote, my client had a conflict of interest. what about your conflict of interest by having an affair with this woman? you know, who's done to the head of marketing, had cnn. now i saw that o'brien who used to work at the network many years ago said this with an open secret, this good that this couldn't of started of with with cove it during cove. this has been going on for some time, according to her. and according to brian shelter, if i'm reading what i'm reading right now, he said that the sucker was going to be fired. he knew it. he asked if he could stay on just to help rearrange or restructure things. and they wanted him out today, which is what i read. so i know that now whether or not this is the a t and t bras saying this is our excuse. this is
7:56 am
a good reason to be able to do it. but why sucker would fess up to with the affair and that just go out with met without a word if they wanted about today. i really don't know, but a lot of people to see and, and a lot of female staffers reportedly are really ticked off, that this woman keeps her job. right. stay, well, one other allison. i got 22nd 5. i'm gonna start to real quick been ratings ratings . vomiting and tucker carlson is going up actually taking viewers a specific demographic from cnn 15 seconds. do you think that also has any effect on why this happened today, or is it more about what's going on the court room with, with the quote was i think it's all about ratings from the ratings have been abs. truly abysmal foresee. and then they continued to drop a t and t, you know, put out a statement saying that they're very proud of seeing it. now they're not seeing it is completely falling apart. the viewership is gone. others like tucker carlson or actually gross demographic that's supposed to be dead. that's what it's all about. and it's all about the 2 of you coming on the show and the writings that we get
7:57 am
because of it. thank you so much for joining me. okay, that's all the time that we have a show, but i promise this is a conversation which i'm going to continue on. the i took her at scottie and he's the hash tag team and and for this show him more download the portal dot to the app or apple or android device. thanks for watching. ah ah,
7:58 am
algorithms and neural networks have been following us everywhere. we look online because our relationships are what matters most to us. and that's how we find meaning and how we make sense of our place in the silicon valley. see, don't mention in that slick presentations. however, the ghost let those who train the self where humans are involved in every step of the process when you're using anything online. but we're sold as this miracle of automation behind your screen is a valuable workforce that feeds algorithms for next to nothing. and a very good, it is $5.00 now a really bad day. i think the 10th and he's workers are invisible by design. it's about labor costs, but it's also about creating layers of weston responsibility between those who solicit this kind of work and need it. and those who do it,
7:59 am
can you manage it? always once the impossible they 1st day a say for the government police probably you government b. they say similar to any of the all, please don't touch my mike and pride with my phone patch, my business bone patch, my freedom. and this is an impossible contradiction with, i mean, they directly re sell, advertise, says content to us and decide who sees what content when and how much of it. facebook claims that these algorithms are there to learn about what our specific preferences actually this is untrue. they are shaping preference if tomorrow a person finds a fake point or legit video. we're saying the flat then this content ranks. huh.
8:00 am
at least 20 percent or maybe even 40 percent or pretty. that is true. it was a very dangerous thing. with headlines right now. what are you international as moscow bowels retaliatory measures against german media accredited? here in russia, it's off the berlin slaps on broadcast ban ortiz vista channel. odd td. londoners police chief is under fire after a report exposes how offices some of whom are still in the job, shed jokes about race and violence. also, the new zealand catholic church admits the 14 percent of clergy. and i've been accused of various forms of abuse since 951 survive of multiple sexual assaults told us about his o t not on.
