elections on military coups from the for venice of correct. so the battlefields around wilson, i went job is to get to the truth and empower people through knowledge. we have a responsibility to get climate story dis, november, leaders from around the world and gathering in glasgow, scotland come 20 solid international climate. we are facing a global climate from nigel running, the well, the biggest pollutants have left for 13 years to change that a waste. hello, i'm richard ginsberg and you're at the listening post where we dig into the coverage and look at how news is reported. here are the media stories we're examining this week, climate change, news organizations, fossil fuel companies, and audiences all need to do better on the story that could mean the end of us. ethiopia enters
7:34 am
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 alger. as he returns 25, 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 break down news organizations. many of which remain dependent on the money that big oil advertising
7:35 am
provides. and 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 messages to younger audience. 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. look 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 may take a last name to stop this graphic climate change for such a slow moving story. it's taken the journalism a long time to catch up,
7:36 am
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 and it's a story about how power is distributed, how governments decide what their interests are. and if you tell his 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 client, chris, if you just trying to treat it like another news item. oh, and by the way, the, the planets rapidly sliding into the dustbin. then we're not going to reach people in the way that we need,
7:37 am
and this is fundamentally an issue of injustice. this is so important that voices from the global self, her present, and leading and given faith. because we are the ones who are experiencing the climate crisis. we need formal, really hammering home the message that it's 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 it. or then activists have to contest it. and their corporate propaganda has changed with the types unto and i wanted it. in part
7:38 am
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, the 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
7:39 am
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 experienced many of these locations. but thanks to, there is a way to both explore nature and to reduce carbon for pretty at the same time is all about aspiration. it's all about now 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 your own 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,
7:40 am
that they're helping us to, to lead a better life. whereas in actual fact, they are pushing us towards oblivion. with 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, you did it. the supporters, like the outlets, rupert murdoch owns in the us and astray, lawyer, 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,
7:41 am
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's and the heads of the fossil fuel train groups to testify before congress and the chairwoman 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 that 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 covered. by vehicle strong gas, if you look at the murdock empire room fox news folks are focusing on prison biden after a transatlantic flight scene to close his eyes for a few minutes during one of the speeches. well claim in the situation on planet
7:42 am
earth is show dire. president bon, reacting by, appearing to take a nap during a climate speech crisen tom sworn such shows that writing is really serious about climate and he really knows his hoax. i mean, what can you say about that? what it means to the journalists 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,
7:43 am
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. it's like a soap opera. so we expect the news to be a soap opera. tune into any 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, women, surely that should be the central to. he just needs a fairly low. i do think the solution lies possibly in rethinking what new is all who expire. and climate journalism holds popsicle key to this as a way to actually do a generation amtrust group. if i get that feel very much that uses the really it's nothing to do with them and anything about that values. i'm say, no, this is
7:44 am
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. his floods and wildfires for to please help all of us are going to be effective. if parts of the world are no longer living, people need to understand that they are 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 gray region of ethiopia, prime minister abi ottoman has declared a 6 month state of emergency flow. phillips is on this flow. why the state of emergency and why now, if you pin cabinet, made the declaration after that, take away people's liberation front,
7:45 am
the t p l f. gain some strategic ground and threatened to close in on the capital, addis ababa. the government's messaging has relied on the state affiliated outlets like fund the tv, where one security official ethiopians to arm themselves. well, it's not a good list. watch. been us how to massage, go massage. the prime minister's office also treated a call for all capable ethiopians who are of age to joined the defense forces, special forces and militias, and i'll be all met himself, use facebook to all citizens to quote barry, the terrorist t p f. now that post distance be moved by the platform for inciting violence from the outset of the fighting. the i b government has had issues with the news coverage. so what kind of reporting conditions are journalists working under now? various blackouts and bands continue to make it very difficult to get the stories out. but the committee to protect journalists has documented the arrests of several
7:46 am
reporters accused of having links with the t l. f. 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 of the ways 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 sends a chilling message to all journalists in the country and not just journalist richard. this is a chilling message to all anything. ok, frank, so our next report comes with a viewer warning. some of the images are disturbing,
7:47 am
which is why we're doing the piece india, whose population includes around $200000000.00 muslims, is seeing more and more videos posted on line of violence against muslim. in more than a dozen incidents this year alone, mobs of mat, calling themselves protectors of the hindu face, have targeted street vendors, rick shot drivers, even children, those videos of the violence they meet out and film often get millions of views. ever since prime minister, no rent remotely, and the b j. p came to power back in 2014. a tax against muslim indians and other minority groups have been on the rise. and if you think that committing a violent crime on camera must mean jail time for the perpetrator, think get the listening posts mean, obviously robbing now on the wave of anti muslim viral violence in india. and the journalists out to expose it. ah,
7:48 am
i spent the last few years trying to why so many videos of the games was in school, while in india, the videos are filmed by your videos. and they can watch that check. but anybody on any of their, like belinda scott, that used to be used. and if you get an america picture, the black people being beaten, humiliated, and even kid died. all those postcards was normalized violence is minorities and to make sure that those minorities know they could be attacked with impunity. anytime the videos guessing india of muslims is doing the same job as belinda scott in the video that in india, especially in this year have been servicing with the regularity. that is shocking. in june, a group of men crash and elderly muslim man and cut off his beard. in august,

7:50 am
thought and eat all of it. where the politic feel is defined by this kind of drywall ism of the section of indian society when they be to minority. you have this premeditated act, 1st performing the violence, recording the violence, and then broadcasting the violence. that video is then posted on social media as sort of to garner community to garner likes, but also to call to violence. the extremists responsible for these attacks are part of the broader hinder or hindu nationalist movement, which has grown in prominence since prime minister in it in the movies might be a genet up id. the v g p came to power in 2014. the act of his claim to be protecting what they call the hindu, rushed. the hindu nation in which muslims, by definition, do not belong. we contacted some of the men behind the videos. we managed to speak with one. he insisted he didn't want to be interviewed on camera. up here videos,

window, the videos are made by the corporate creators of these crying. and they are chevy with a lot of bright witnessing and india moment of absolute nationalism. yes. ah . and to identify once over to or offer one. so as a foot soldier is also to claim a leadership position. many of these activists are also members of internationalized organizations. so it's career advancement in terms of being taken care of. if one performs who lives through these a mob outfits a vigilante outfits. but it is also claiming a leadership position and then having a following, ah, the budget and i, a hindu supremacist organization, claimed responsibility for one of those attacks. groups like these have become increasingly emboldened in recent years. as have officials of india's leading hindu

nationalist party. the b g p, many have incited or condoned anti muslim violence in 2018, a b t p minister publicly honoured 8 men who had been convicted of lynching a muslim man to deck before having their sentences suspended. then there's the south side, yuki, adina, chief minister of india's most populous state, with equity. in september, on the campaign trail for the election, he said muslims had been monopolizing government food dialogues. i'll go down to supper. i get ahead in the mood thought ha, don't get la. a part of our last on august got a got it. just you the b g b yet reminded officials for anti was him statements. but it's leaders have been conspicuously quiet about this years. spirit of anti muslim violence when they have
7:54 am
got involved in some cases it's been to blame the victim. like the bangle cellar, the slim ali, once the video went white and there was a lot of outrage and a very strong public bush, but it's the aggressors. however, the next day look, unless they're not by the college game on camera guilty, but regowski, public school sample bargaining mother. whoa, read the lum from market belyea to bug her badge. i'm sure i could come got wrap up and he made some very serious allegations against us. me money. you said that does mean what he was pausing as a hindu. and he had a vague, his identification papers suggesting already semester approach on your programming for quality of a lot of beauty. police have at times been bystanders to violence and failed to take action. and at other times, police have actually turned on the person who is victimized, but reciprocally. if you look at the kush, me re muslim who post
7:55 am
a video of how they are being brutalized. state action has been taken against them so that people who are perpetrators are going free. they are being encouraged to perpetrate people who are victims who are coming forward seeking justice are being further victimized. oh, the flea, my lease. keith is a prime example of that. the men who attacked him out on bill while he is in jail charged with molesting the daughter of one of his aggressors. a complaint that was only lodged after his assault. his trial could be months if not years or we are kept your trucks. maplin up butler. okay, that was got one so but over the past few years in the news outlets have been damping up. is lama phobic, invective manufacturing, polio cases of hubs or holy wars? being beached by india's muslims against the nation yacht. but what i want you to be a good job, love job. give this get so much extra trouble what's going to make it so this is

a big pool. get in bold, but buddy talk much on the other side of the rising leave of media, incitement. journalists, muslim and non muslim alike, doing their best to spend the time investigating each attack and the complicity of those in power. some very well meaning people tell me their concern for me, i bite me not to go with the story. they tell me to ignore the that a while is because in a way the thing that these boys held the b j. b, and that i've been admitted and that i didn't know they say that these but i don't think that we can see that any more. this is getting mainstream. and as a journalist, it's my job to chronicler what is happening. and it's also a documentation of history for the next generation of indians to see what the country was like in 2021. and
