10:33 pm
news. news is that building is where our fear is, officers or another strike or not. the one will know less about what's going on in got that because that building with the level and we will continue to respond forces to the security of our state by some of the what community violence that in several years. hello. are mr. gifts burden you are the listening post where we don't cover the news we cover the way the news is covered. here are the media stories we're examining this week. journalism comes under israeli fire in gaza and inside israel and quite on the airwaves, is only making things way into tar kenyon, who blogged about life as
10:34 pm
a migrant worker, finds himself in custody. but the authorities have yet to produce a charge. they jing get some help with its propaganda push on sin jack from a band of western influences on line. and what do we call home? actually, she had told her that, hey, schedule the viral video that shows the meaning of dispossession in power. that would be about 2 weeks of intense, devastating israeli bombing has overwhelmed the gaza strip. 2000000 inhabitants, high rise buildings, housing civilians, and news organizations. this network included have been reduced to rubble fill the israeli government and its military enjoy a kind of diplomatic impunity. some of that has to do with israel's traditional ability to dominate the media space, to focus the narrative on anti hum, talking points. but garza is only one part of this rapidly moving story across
10:35 pm
israel and the occupied territories. palestinians have erupt in protest. israeli cities like the lid and have seen more violence, most of it directed at palestinian citizens. and it's organized often with the cover of israeli security forces. some voices on the israeli airwaves who call themselves journalists have been guilty of incitement. the images of inter, communal violence, so close to home have shaken the israeli public in a way that the video from gaza and the west bank failed to do. that's our starting point. this week. the gaza strip, where a ceasefire has just come into effect. trying to return fire after 11 days of bombing, gaza, brought to an end by a c. v is really government is still all in on the information among the stories it is asking the world to believe that god has only cobra. 1900 testing facility was
10:36 pm
a legitimate target, along with its biggest book shop. and a matter of fact the, that the leveling of this 12 story building had nothing to do with the palestinian news organizations and international ones that had offices and intelligence offers for the palestinian tariffs organization. how that building plots and organizing the terror acts against israeli. perfectly legitimate targeting that the associated press and algebra. 2 key players in documenting this latest war on gaza worth the targets. they just happened to have bureaus in the build collateral damage. nothing . there is really narrative, really what you call it, clean, that which is movement that covering the got to have the military assets within the building, which justifies what evidence is that? do you believe about building?
10:37 pm
how come out? everyone knew the secret, so to speak, a p, f l, just 0, sorry. but they all, well know you're going to the hell out of the my well, i do for tv when you all human scale, which is too high. a monkey 1000000000 neighborhood to deter from targeting be reality is that there had been cancer investigation into e claim about many years. and there have been no way to verify these claims. now imagine if it was the other way around, a mass destroyed high rise and television unused the justification that it was housing, israeli military officials and then the menus where the military buildings are in central televi building with the national president. i can because it's safer than others because i presume that joe wayne bond them. but the sad and devastating
10:38 pm
reality is that there is reading a safe space in gaza. how long can you say israel has the right to defend itself in lots of that already against journalist, really in fire tower being flattened. that's the message that we're not going to let you control the narrative. we want to control the israel also targets news content on the middle east. for example, have you watched our report on god's last week, the version posted on youtube. it might have been preceded by this ad from israel's ministry of strategic affairs. media organizations like al jazeera and a p have the resources to fight to find new office, replace equip, but small palestinian media outlets in gaza do not their vital sources of local news. and they've been targeted repeatedly. and they also have to rebuild their offices, scrapped by expensive equipment. that was loss and replenish our concept. been
10:39 pm
totally destroyed. and these smaller policy media outlets have played a vital role in telling the world what is really going on in gaza. israel invest a lot of money and communicating with the outside world. there's a term in hebrew for this it's called has the broad has broad means explanation. and that's really what someone like mark greg as to is a professional diplomat is being sent to do when it goes in is interviewed on an or cnn. we didn't what this conflict on the country we took a number of steps. exactly. we could about the for the ser, up to, to try to deescalate the steps of the u. s. government price this month. but unfortunately, how much withheld beverage on initiating is called his job is to explain to the broader world why israel is doing what it's doing. but i think that what we've been beginning to see over the last few days is that there's talking points aren't really working. and the story that was shut off in east jerusalem with the protests
10:40 pm
over the me expulsion of palestinians from their homes to make away for jewish is rabies. and then in golf, gaza, when the bombing baker has had a poisonous effect in israel itself. in mixed cities like live, aka and just the communal violence, the public lynch captured on camera. some of them broadcasts live on is really television. have gone both with michigan. but there is no palestinian equivalent for the mobs of armed israeli settlers that were bust into those city. allowed him by israeli police. israeli reporters are free to hold power to account . and on domestic political matters usually did. but their journalism on palestinian issues pertaining to the occupation is far less relies and much more
10:41 pm
parties put the country on a war footing and many will tow the line. and then we be talking have my dog view heart of the state on channel car, because palestinians, the enemies who just prior to interviewing college indian journalist, rama eunice, asked repeatedly on the air. if it was time for the israelis to reload. good. got it. but i'm out of my head of it. i get a little bit of guinea, might've been that cannot see that we saw i say light lately. so when i confronted him about that, he said that no, but the all for me was a question. now we know these picks right. there is a question which is a fair question, and there is a way to incite, under the guise of him among full mental show for him. you would deem shit the
10:42 pm
cream, but theme and machine machine with of so they are some simple cream it dumb barometer of it below that them loma didn't get that. the joy side is the one with the weapon, the video, it's office, they can kind of see me and me see if you look it up, a block of you that out. look, pete, they will do some looking for the off the headway. it's an inflammatory kind of coverage, a way of justifying violence and repression of palestinian protest i name and finish the 3rd to supply my name. i mean to say that that much, i think they sent me lawsuit in detroit. so it was really generally when there is a war report, sort of falling line behind the government, which i know of what it should be will be by the middle of mostly reproducing the talking points that the idea spokesperson has given them. but they sort of go the extra mile and begin to call for military actually solve the for me going to go, do i get make sure our bigger money
10:43 pm
owe is real. is up against some inconvenient facts and figures about its occupation and the palestinians. it dominates across their historical usually when israel wages war on god cease fires can taken weeks to go into effect even months. this one took just 1111 days of death and destruction brought to an end as power steering and see by mass mobilization and a general strike inside israel and across the occupied territories. the trophies in stone is the long that fell on god could not stop back mobilize ation because palestinians don't need to be on the streets to do not anymore. all they need is a phone and their cars will cut my blaze. ation across the colonized palestine from
10:44 pm
the ribbon. c is really important because it's unprecedented suddenly in my generation, in the midst. so if it's ready presentation of the palestinian people, we're still able to come together for which had cause against ethnic cleansing against sattler. colonialism divided by the ology is all about jewish supremacy. you have to guess what in fighting against women in mind and hush month and for the tv present, those are fighting against my father. that is where the police officer sees that is what he did. that is when the pilot says that and what do they do? after they, after they see that they take revenge. what we're seeing now in the proof that we haven't been a struggle, the palestinian cause, it's been a much alive and kicking and it's being led by us. you don't need the world to come in 3. all right, we can do it ourselves. all we need from the world is to be aware of what's
10:45 pm
happening. and we'll play a little bit more pressure on is when public, grimes against me in the air, a gulf state of guitar, a kenyan security guy who also blogged about life as a migrant worker in guitar was arrested earlier this month. he's still in custody. joanna, who has been tracking this story, joe, what do we know about this case? while the security guards name is mark on the dolly, as you said, a kenyan and one of the many foreign workers who make up the vast majority of guitars population. and before his arrest, the dalai under the pen name noah about migrant workers in katara. on may, 5th, a category official conformed to all desert that quote. but ali was taken into custody and placed under investigation for violating guitar security laws and regulations over no details were given on his whereabouts at his well being or whether or not he had access to a lawyer. in the absence of those details,
10:46 pm
what do we know about what he was blogging about? well, according to human rights groups, amnesty international. but ali was quote on the front line of the fight to reform guitars, labor laws, and his blogs focused on issues like long working hours, low wages, poor working conditions unsuitable accommodation. again, at this stage, we do not know whether or not his arrest was in any way related to his writings. but the critics have said that this case is a clear example of the limits to freedom of speech and tar, which also funds this network or does era in particularly the sensitivity around migrant workers. and the football world cup is coming up in guitar next year. so all eyes are on that country. yes. and, and having numerous media reports about that among migrants working on the construction of the stadiums for the world cup. but katasha has said that he has introduced a series of reforms to it's labor laws, which an international labor organization has called historic,
10:47 pm
including minimum wage from migrant workers. but human rights organizations say that katara still has a long way to go. and with the tournament just over a year away, it seems very likely that this is going to remain a contentious issue. ok, thanks joe. it's been nearly 5 years now since the chinese communist party's campaign of mass internment, and 4th labor began in sin j. we've reported on pages propaganda over stories of an estimated 1.5 to 3000000 weaker muslims, and other minorities being sent to internment camps. beijing started with a strategy of denial on the existence of the camps, producing documentary, showing happily reformed wiggers. then came a more aggressive approach, strictly controlled access for foreign journalists. threats made against critical reporters. it is clear that a new phase of official spin is now underway. chinas, adding some western faces to the mix. white ones online influencers who contend
10:48 pm
that the thin jang story is being overblown by the western media. that reports of all those people being put away are either just flat out false or if true, represent nothing more than a proportionate legitimate response to a national security. but listening posts, monopoly robbing now on the western voices contesting claims of a genocide infringement. what's up, guys? i'm coming at you from china. and in today's episode i'm going to be talking about like china and right. you said that this is a new america thing. and it has 1400000000 people, and it has a very vibrant internet. it's a fascinating time to be a sign of file. there's been a spike in interest in all things. china, your office, all began china, is that where the new log india's media has erupted with the chinese
10:49 pm
sentiment briefing invasion today. the for, along with boosting, journalism, academic study about the country is also given new prominence to a nice group of china watch it. aiming to understand the country from the inside. when you hear the word time. what the 1st thing, the counselor and who did nouns, the mainstream western consensus on china, china for the past couple of months, these particular voices have all been speaking about one topic. what's guys coming out you from cache guard ancient city in shin jones. there's a with a reason why west america like for slave concentration camps and genocide when they're talking about young china. everyone is finally arrived at the cotton pharmacy machine. the 1st thing i noticed about the video from rob dollar is the there are a lot of propaganda messages and right up. this is great in visit cotton,
10:50 pm
farm and seeing job. they're using drones to sprinkle pesticide on the field, like all of the stuff to kind of prove that, you know, there's no slave labor here breaking you guys there. forcing drones to work here. the cause to feel as if she's young. if you didn't know anything about was happening and she's young, you think, oh, great farmer family are pretty prosperous lenny willis and no money, i shall use for julio to call new machine for them to show you what you do. so there are a number of foreigners, many of them, based on china that post these videos, some on chinese platform such as c, b, but many on youtube as well because they do want to target audience outside of china. you know, one of the things that strange about being a foreigner who loves china is when i go to the west, i become an unofficial spokesman for china. one thing i want to highlight is that it's very hard to say how much of the feedback that is actually paid for by the
10:51 pm
chinese state of self managed online commentators systems that the parties that employees would also send out tasks to people to know amplify something the post something comment on something influences like canadian daniel dumbbell israelis ross gala or the british father son dual lee and all the bad. it was in the millions on the video shading site billy billy picked up and we're able china's version of twitter. no one has provided any evidence that the chinese government has directly paid these influences to turn out their videos. the bloggers themselves recently in a curiously simultaneous bush boston videos refuting allegations that they are paid by the chinese communist parties. the ccp know, we are not paid by the ccp to make specific positive content about china. what is clear, however, is that being approved of these messages?
10:52 pm
while would these commentators be getting air time on state onto tv channels? danny, very much welcome to the show. thanks very much for having me. i have been approach recently by quite a few media outlets and this is the only one i chose to go on because the message daniel requested an interview, get a response to japan appears to be his feeble broadcast. he's also been endorsed by china's ministry of foreign affairs. at the end of march, an online discussion, he hosted about accusations of genocide and in john was plague at one of the military press briefings. we have a precedent for fake propaganda created to serve american political interest. that video was been treated by spokesperson watch one of the most prominent pieces of the chinese government. i think there are a couple of different reasons why the chinese government is pushing back so hard in recent months on what's happening in john. first and foremost,
10:53 pm
we're starting to see some more serious steps in the pursuit of investigations into what's happening in young you through a body like the un human rights council. and i think the chinese government feels an overwhelming urge to push back against that. there's been more of a coordinated western effort the u. s. e u u k. the canada they've issued sanctions against chinese officials, several western countries as openly called what's happening to do a weaker a genocide. so as we see a level of coordination, dr. among western allies, china is camping up their propaganda. so the idea that the chinese government has to have certain points conveyed by foreigners rather than by saying it themselves is actually a pretty old one. you have directive from the 60 used by him out to don't himself
10:54 pm
to say, you know, we all know china as the center of the world revolution, but we have to have foreigners say it for us because that way it's going to be more credible. and this basic logic still hold me. that doesn't mean chinese officials have retreated media. on the contrary, as pressure about the situation in soon, john has intensified in recent months. beatings, counter attack has become more forceful to the primary thing that the chinese communist party wants to sit in. more human rights activists. journalists to do is to just shut up. so any kind of leverage they can use on people, they will. there was the case recently where 2 weaker women were interviewed on b, b, c. and they talked about, you know, the rape that happens in the camps. and the chinese, they run media went and found the family of one of these women. and they made her family essentially denounce her on camera. the chinese government and its
10:55 pm
allies, pushback head against organizations like human rights watch or researchers like adrian zan or vicky. she was always going to give me a jingle and she will, you know, that she wouldn't ponder high yet, but i have to say that i think that for, for human rights watch, the single biggest frustration is that, you know, nobody from the chinese government has the guts to sit down and talk with us on the fact. instead, president season things government plays the what about ism card on human rights abuses and legal double standards in the western world to magician the origin? let's look up. when he talked to jack chip, it's a tactic that it needs rather than informs but western states sanctioned crimes, was illegal imprisonments give aging and its influences of choice. a lot to work
10:56 pm
with. this is a very weird point that i hear a lot of anti chinese people pushing china, very aggressive. and this isn't very bizarre to here are coming from americans because while the united is in multiple wars simultaneously, today, china is in 0 wars. they're taking legitimate criticism of the us government and trying to say just because the u. s. government has these issues. nothing. nothing that has been so far reported about the weaker so can possibly be true. it's fairly ironic because it can be angry at what's west and you can also be angry at what china does. these don't have to be usually explicit. but there are course the parties they does now discover at these groups and trying to integrate them into their messaging because they're bringing it across the teen message. don't look at us, look at america. ah, and for those who insist on looking at china,
10:57 pm
there are videos out there. just don't mistake what you're watching for journalism, john. so the best way to go and live like a call to farmer. and actually i think i'll finish quite well because lot of people tell me i look like she's young. if it was in journalism is going to be leading would be looking to control it or you're not promoting. and finally, last week we ran that video. the one that went viral, of an israeli man telling a palestinian family to leave their home in east jerusalem, telling them that if he didn't steal it from other israeli would given everything that's happened since it is worth remembering, that's where this current story, the bombing of gaza, the communal fighting got its start on the notion of home palestinian filmmaker, omar ramble has produced a simple, powerful video on dispossession. and what it means, depending on which community you call home,
10:58 pm
in the holy 6000000 views and counter was the next time. here at the listening post account with the one that came up. and now i know how much you've been most i should be good enough. well, i knew that last wednesday or actually she had had a surgery patient,
10:59 pm
you know, that i see the a little trouble with my dog. and he said that we did buy the house in the had them knew will as well as i meant to the doctor. that was a the special news news, news news . they may not be held at the table. they might not have the biggest stadium, but they stand just tightened in the face of the fascist fall, right. to move that you want to show the world the good guys can
11:00 pm
sometimes when they fall behind, jim said polly phenomenon the funds you make football on just deal. we understand the differences and similarities of culture with across the world that might have when you call home will be used in current. does that matter to you? hello, i'm marianne timothy and london with a look at the main stories. now the scale of the damage in garza is being assessed as the seaside between israel and palestinian on groups that came to force early on friday continues to hold a flow of much needed aid is also started with trucks from various agencies bring medicine, fuel and food into garza, the wild helpfulness ation is calling for more health supplies and personnel. it says the territory facilities are at risk of being overwhelmed. suffolk, l. hollywood.
