10:34 pm
a state of emergency and the government's controlling of journalism, there has turned aggressive violence against muslims filmed by the perpetrators, the latest ugly trend among india's hindu vigilantes. plus the chance roaring in downtown pale al jazeera turns $25.00. we looked back at a quarter century of a different kind of news coverage. we begin with the biggest story on the planet, which is about the planet and climate change. a topic that somehow still doesn't get the news coverage it deserves. there are plenty of news cameras at the cop $26.00 climate conference taking place right now in scotland. our focus is on the coverage at other times when world leaders aren't gathering. among the issues, the privileging of perspectives and interests of wealthy nations and big business over those of poor countries on the front lines of climate breakdown. news organizations, many of which remain dependent on the money that big oil advertising provides. and
10:35 pm
some of which, like rupert murdoch's platforms in the u. s. and australia are resistant to the story. fossil fuel companies, masters of the art of quiet persuasion. now using platforms like instagram and tick tock to sell their green washed, such as to younger audiences. and the audiences themselves, how is it that the prospect of our imminent destruction is not the ultimate in news? click bait. our starting point this week is glasgow. leaders gathering it's got the time to tackle this live in a last can't to control global warming for journalists in search of an assignment that matters. the cop 26 climate conference in scotland provides one. they're covering the story of our collapsing ability to sustain life. and it being paid the last name to start gas traffic, climate change for such a slow moving story. it's taken the journalism a long time to catch up,
10:36 pm
to find the right story, telling formula to all from the reporting still struggles to see beyond the science . to get at the bigger picture, how the topic they are covering connects to every aspect of our lives. it's not a science story at all. it's a story about college him. it's a story about how power is distributed, how governments decide what their interests are. and if you tell this story as a story of people, you will have readers and viewers because everyone wants to know what powerful people are doing and how it extends. and you can tell that story every single day when you're talking about the climate. chris, if you just trying to treat it like another news item. oh, and by the way, the, the planet's rapidly sliding into the dustbin. then we're not going to reach people in the way that we need. and this is fundamentally an issue of injustice. this is
10:37 pm
so important that voice is from the global self her present and being and given faith. because we are the ones who are experiencing the climate crisis. we need from all really hammering home the message that it the, the rich nations who are overwhelmingly causing this problem. but it's people who bear almost no responsibility for it. the poorest people on earth who had being hit 1st and worst by it as compelling as that narrative should be the climate change story is up against it. part of that has to do with resources and the principles involved. fossil fuel companies have more money to shape news coverage than media outlets have to provide or than activists have to contest it. and their corporate propaganda has changed with the times until they weren't given her to
10:38 pm
denials of the science have been replaced by softer, subtler forms of disinformation through messages spread by influencers on platforms like instagram and tick tock. the oil and gas companies are obviously no longer denying that the climate crisis is real. to do that at this point, would be utterly absurd. so now what they've done, they rebranded themselves to become an integrated energy company. scaling up renewables is a major focus. they're painting themselves as trustworthy partners in the clean energy transition. over the last decade, chevron has been to for $1000000.00 on carbon cab your projects, who are committed to $90.00. and you are leading the research into new technology, and that will help us solve the climate crisis to provide the energy solutions and advanced modern life. now neither of these claims are true. they pay
10:39 pm
instagram influences, they pay for content and take talk and many other platforms, and often in ways which are really subtle and insidious. yes, it's a reality that we need to drive to experience many. jason, a thanks to shell. there's a way to both explore nature and to reduce carbon footprint at the same time is all about aspiration. it's all about, you know, you can lead a good life and we can help you to lead that good life. and hey, look at this fantastic car. you can have an industry has a huge amount of money, and it's also kind of bills in the romance of travel. we're also coming out to pandemic. so a lot of us missed travel. we want to travel mold, and the oil industry is been very good at kind of using marketing and using fluid says to tap into our design to get on the road essentially. and, and they're constantly trying to persuade us that they're on our site,
10:40 pm
that they're helping us to, to lead a better life. whereas in actual fact, they are pushing us towards oblivion. with nancy, when the fossil fuel lobby relies on news organizations, some of which remains supportive of the industry, many of which have simply grown, dependent on it. because no matter what the natural disaster is, hurricanes, tornadoes, acne, whatever climate change did it, are you getting the supporters like the outlets. rupert murdoch owns in the u. s. and australia fight the consensus on what changes. societies must make how quickly it must make from the dependence include legacy outlets like the washington post and the new york times newspapers that produce quality journalism on climate change while pocketing significant ad revenues from oil companies. this network al jazeera benefits from guitars, gas, and oil reserves,
10:41 pm
and even relative newcomers to american journalism, political axis and punch bowl news all have their political newsletters, sponsored by big oil in the united states last week, they called the ceo and the heads of the killed train groups to testify before congress and the chairman asked. do you believe that it was ethical for exxon to run a new york times advertisement that down played, downplayed the riff. is it ethical to spread these lies when they all know full well that climate change is real and the science is not uncertain. and there was one study that showed that there were 5 times as many fossil fuel ads on cnn as there was climate code by vehicle, strong gas. if you look at the murdock empire room, fox news folks here focusing on president biden after transit atlantic flight, seem to close his eyes for a few minutes during one of the speeches all claim in the situation on planet earth
10:42 pm
is show dire president binary, acting by appearing to take a nap during a climate speech. crisen tom sworn such shows that by these really is seriously climate and he really knows his hoax. i mean, what can you say about that? what it means to be a journalist and put out that kind of crap ah, for a story as existentially, critical as climate change, audience interest has been oddly lacking and for too long that is change surveys and country after country indicate news. consumers say they want more on climate change. and reader engagement is trending up. platforms like bloomberg the financial times and gives moto, are all responding with new, specialized content. but check out the top 10 most popular story list on the b, b, c, the washington post or the guardian on any given day this week. other topics like politics,
10:43 pm
crime, even celebrities proved more popular with readers than a climate story that could change everything. we've been very well trained over the years to respond to trivia so much political journalism is basically just who's in, who's out like a soap opera. so we expect the news to be a soap opera, june inter at him station on a day of climate disaster and listen to what people are talking about. and it is the most ineffable trivia. the whole world is going to hell in the hancock and say, wait a minute, short, he's actually the central to he trusted needs is fairly low. i do think the solution lies possibly in rethinking what news is all who expires on climate journalists. i'm holds popsicle key to this. there's a way to ask me to do a generation amtrust group of society that feel very much that uses the, the lease. it's nothing to do with them. and if anything at all style to that values, i'm say no. this is
10:44 pm
a story which affects everybody the audience for climate stores is definitely increasing because so many more people are being affected by climate catastrophes. we have to reach people who are not necessarily affected directly by her is floods and wildfires. for to explain how all of us are going to be affected. if parts of the world are no longer livable, people need to understand that they're being manipulated by large corporations who have a self interest, which is contrary to the self interest of all of us as members of the human race. exactly a year after war broke out in the northern te grey region of ethiopia, prime minister ob eoc. net has declared a 6 month state of emergency flow. phillips is on this flow. why the state of emergency and why now the ethiopian cabinet made the decoration after that, take away people's liberation, france

10:46 pm
accused of having links with the t p s. now those charges tend to be vague to journalists at be privately owned, a hall, do radio and television have been under arrest since last month after airing an interview with a t p. i left official who was contesting the government's narrative around territory. and what are the authorities doing about the international coverage of this story? recently the main broadcast regulator ordered ethiopian channels to stop transmitting content from foreign media. so how do radio and tv which is affiliated with voice america can no longer at any v o, a international coverage and of b o. a put out a statement saying that the order restricts the free flow of information to the citizens and it undermines press freedom. and it sent a chilling message to all john, this in the country. and not just john, this richard, this is a chilling message to all anything. okay, thanks. our next report comes with a viewer warning. some of the images are disturbing,
10:47 pm
