11:33 am
a center of international finance, international culture. to make these stories resonate requires talking to everyday people to normal people, not just power brokers, and that's where al jazeera is different. the mayor of the city announced that he was doing the way with the curfew. that was, that was to get everybody on this international perspective with the human touch zooming way in and then pulling back out again. the us government has won its appeal on the high co edition of june in the us wants essentially a phase trial over the release in 2010 of thousands of people going off to the publisher of information that a government dean's classified secret is pretty liberal and authoritarian thing to do a lot of gilbert and you're at 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. julian songs is now one legal step closer to being extradited to the us. we
11:34 am
look at a case, but not enough news organizations care about. what did fox news host really think about the dc riot slash january 6th. their text messages to the white house that day tell a story the turks and turning to you to in search of the kind of reporting they can no longer find in the mainstream. and taking pride in a vast new prison complex in egypt, one of the world's worst jailers of journals releases a bizarre promo video. it's been a week now since a pair of judges in london gave the go ahead for the extradition of julian assange to the united states. amnesty international called that ruling, a travesty of justice press freedom groups have also. busy condemned it in terms just escaping washington wants to prosecute a science for revealing state secrets that happened to include war crimes. revelation is that wiki leeks,
11:35 am
and the journalists and these outlets that reported those secrets as news stories deemed to be in the public interest. not enough of those news outlets are standing out for the songs now given how important the source he and wiki leaks were back. that this latest court decision overturned an earlier ruling, which opposed extra dining assad's due to his failing health. and the conditions he face in an american prison. julian assange has one more appeal coming, but his fate remains in the hands of the u. k. and the u. s. government secrets he helped expose our starting point this week, his lunch. i irony. friday, december 10th, 2021 day a high court in london, ruled the julian assad's could be extradited to washing. happened united nations human rights. it was the same good to other journalists were receiving the nobel
11:36 am
peace department. it was also the day the violin ministration posted more than $100.00 global leaders and what it called summit for democracy in terms of the international media cycle. it was a day where the focus on journalism would very much been on the nobel peace prize, because of course, 2 journalists were receiving the nobel that day, maria, philippines, and dmitri morocco from russia. and also in the us where the biden administration was concluding its big summit for democracy. we've shown a spotlight on the importance of protecting media freedom to convince states from around the world to discuss issues related to human rights including media, freedom. this court decision came on the day when statements were made by the buyers and distribution in support of press, freedom of being the pre requisites for democracy. and so it was frankly, grotesque to have on this day a british high court,
11:37 am
allowing scientists extradition the the last word on whether julian assange can be legally extradited to face charges for publishing, classified us government documents will now come from the case supreme court. this latest ruling came following several assurances made by the us to the british govern. that a sancho will get a fair trial. despite the fact, the cia has already broken us laws in gathering the evidence by a legally acquiring surveillance which of meetings between assange and his lawyers . when he was at the ecuadorian embassy in london, the u. s. has insisted, the defendant will be safe in its customer. even though as yahoo news has reported state department operatives working under donald trump disgust, ways to abduct assange or assassinate him. in 2017,
11:38 am
the assurances the british court put so much stockings were made by a country that has a habit of reneging on its international agreements. when you read the text of those assurances, you real quickly realised that those assurances didn't assure anything at all. the u. s. has promised this thought it will not detained julia found in the most notorious super max prison in florence, colorado. but now the united states has dozens of super max prisons and they only excluded one. they also promised that they will lot detain him under the so called special administrative measures. but then only about 50 persons in the united states are under disk current regime. while currently about 80000 or in solitary confinement under different regime. so to put it bluntly, that really happened a promised anything. we now know that there was a c, i a plan to kill judy in assange inside the embassy. it's not being denied. so you
11:39 am
handing over a political prisoner to his executioners, or at least people who discussed seriously bumping him off, no doubt with the aid pretty intelligent, they couldn't do it without their so these assurances are not were for anything quite almost the given the implications, the assange case has for other journalists, the news coverage of a consistent. we comes short in terms of both scale and child outlets. the feast on what which leaks reveal about the war in iraq and afghanistan, the dark side of american diplomacy, the guardian. morning news organizations like the guardian, the new york times the b, b. c, and been muted in their reporting of the case. and sometimes when the court issued its decision, the guardian published and editorial calling for a sanchez released. but for the paper with a pension for campaigning, there was
11:40 am
a distinct lack of enthusiasm for the story. the time has not put out an editorial, honest orange since 2019 all 3 oakland have effectively distance themselves from the source of some of their biggest stories. and their coverage reveals far more about them than it does about julian assault. the b, b. c. coverage of the ruling was typically a bland report. from studio they had to interview assigned his wife and they had to interview one other and support agents. it would have been too obvious not doing that, but the report of standing outside the court think the bulk of that report was giving government critically. the us now given very key assurance that mr. a staunch, no matter how mentally ill he may be, will be treated humanely and the americans have given the shore and says, et cetera, et cetera. the last case was worried about 2. that was enough to convince the 2 of
11:41 am
the most senior churches in the country that is to be dc has increasingly but now the voice of the british stay at the end of the day, the us is a democracy. there are protections within its whole judicial system. and it's criminal justice system often when we step outside court, the interviews that we're giving are not to british media. i have to say most of the interviews has been through other european media. i know there's a lot of german and french interest in the case, for example, or australian camera, crucial to be there. i would expect to get more coverage in the u. k. the country where these proceedings have been taking place. the precedent that is being said here is alarming. if the u. s. successful in extra studying and prosecuting joint songs, we can see the very media partners that have published information based on these lease documents targeted. not the too often news organizations take their editorial leads from politicians that has created another gaping hole in the narrative around
11:42 am
julian. they don't think he's not supposed to be taken care storm or had the labor for the official opposition in the british parliament, leading figures in his party, reacted to the latest court ruling with 5 star mer is a lawyer who used to had the case. crown prosecution, so back in 2012, when prosecutors in sweden were considering dropping their bogus sexual assault investigation into a soft british prosecutor's working understood armor lobbied against that part. they sent an e mail to stucco, saying don't you dare get cold feet? the swedes ended up dropping the case anyway. but british thumbs had tried to tip the scale of swedish justice on tier storm as watch. don't expect him to rock the boat on the role played by ken starr ma is probably the most appalling
11:43 am
road played by a british politician in this whole case, because the so called rapes didn't take place in britain. yet they gotten colleen bold under kiss darma. when he was there, pleading with the swedes don't withdraw your case. males that the un report on torture revealed soul based the head of your position in the u. k. customer has a history in this case. and the revelations made by ricky leaks referred back to a period when labor was in fact the government. over the years, governments have changed. different political parties have been in charge, but all of them have basically been responsible for those violations. simpler, exposed by wikileaks item, all up to traffic to 60, and none of them are interested in the media focusing on those revelations and discussed in government misconduct. because clearly that would have led to legal proceedings, potentially even against a political leaders. ah, instead it's julie in a savage locked up in a london prison, recovering from
11:44 am
a minor stroke under maximum security conditions. oh, a journalist treated like a menace to society. what he really is is a menace to governance secret of what's including to that like to talk up their democracies and export their values. so called people, especially the u. s. and u. k. we want to believe that we have rule of lodge the same fundamental rights and freedoms that we promote in all parts of the world. but what is happening to juliana sanchez so clearly political, he has been targeted for his contributions to journalism and his treatment. especially if he has actually added to the united states and prosecuted. there will have implications for public interest reporting around the world for many years to come turning to american politics now the investigations into the january 6th capitol hill riot. are proving damaging to fox
11:45 am
news. terracon offer is keeping his social distance, but he's here with the details. well, richard, the story is about what fox news hers were publicly turning their audiences that night versus what they were privately texting the white house. earlier in the day, the 3 folks presented laur ingram, sean hannity, and brian, kil, mead will all pro trump until our and as congress women live cheney a member of the committee investigating the riots revealed. they all texted trump chief of staff, mark meadows that day, imploring him to get the president to stop the violent reference. multiple fox news hosts knew the president needed to act immediately. quote, mark, the president needs to tell people in the capital to go home. this is hurting all of us. he is destroying his legacy. laura ingraham wrote,
11:46 am
given what they told their viewers that night and thereafter that left them with some explaining to do. yeah, initially there was complete silence from folks but 24 hours later on and see an ingram piped up last night in a weak attempt to spear yours truly. and presumably, i guess president trump. congresswoman cheney presented one of my text messages from january 6th to mark meadows. ah, surprise, surprise, surprise, this sent left wing media hacks into spin and defame mode. now of course the regime media was somehow trying to twist this message to try to tar me as a liar, a hypocrite in probably the general message from both of them was that the text to meadow were consistent with what they told us. and ingram actually re run the opening of her january fixture of her defendants this week. earlier today, the capital was under seized by people who can only be described as antithetical to
11:47 am
the mag and movement. now, there were likely not all tramps importers, and there are some reports at and t for sympathizers may have been sprinkled throughout the crowd. we'll have more. it is true that ingram ann hobbins. he publicly condemned the violence, but the mention of anti for reference to the left wing anti fascists was revealing and completely unsubstantiated. it was designed to throw doubt if only foxes coverage of the riots had been as clear as those text messages were. ok, thanks talk. there are plenty of negative headlines coming out of turkey these days . the lira plunging to record lowe's, rocketing inflation and economy in decline. luckily for the air to watch government, it's got most of the news media. they're under control. more than 85 percent of turkey's mainstream media is in the hands of conglomerates that are aligned with the government. the president is a fixture on television, and hundreds of journalists have either been attacked,
11:48 am
jailed or have fled the country. some independent voices have taken refuge online like to nate aust, amir, his daily you to program has become a staple for turks. younger viewers in search of journalism, of a different kind of the mayor has his critics. however, they say his decision to remain editorially neutral, makes him complicit in what this government dies. his middle of the road approach looks like a survival strategy in a country that is just introduced yet more legislation. curbing freedom of information online. listening posts flow phillips now on the turkish journalist to have swept the broadcast airwaves for life on youtube. no, they, they say muscle. solomon tucker, interior minister, president, one lloyd. i met about the crown and my mother, mary. this done go a central figure in the main opposition on j mazda wishes to shame,
11:49 am
a better actress and fashion designer, a tough liberty. what are they will have in common talk? is it that much to do? so just need you to know why she cannot. you know, we started filling vacuum journalists have not been able to conduct independent and free journalism on turkey's mainstream channels. so there's been a shift towards so like when the minister of finance, i posted his resignation on the ground. everyone kept quiet, the old man, st. hodges and said, i'm not midnight launched, a live broadcast, breaking news style, you can an economy that's sort of the book of you said ronda is because neither 3 am 150000 people who are still watch. these are serial numbers. the game calculated the resignation of the finance minister was beacon
11:50 am
just not on t v and the mainstream didn't touch it perhaps because the minister of finance just happens to be president, add one son in law. and getting on the wrong side of the president is ill advised in tennessee. so you tube has become a go to not just for mainstream journalists looking for a digital refuge, but the viewers looking for independent information delivered in an appealing way. as the internet is limited, tornadoes the me style suits youtube. it's an entertainment plot for more than it is an information site. so success depends on how much you can engage with and ties to the brochure, but up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up. i'm just not good on that side here to nathan, because before my julie has been inspired by american lately talking and he's mixed in as an sooner american, it's a style that really works for generations. either mucus regarding ranaldo, the trickier. what fool america?
11:51 am
marcela mcs, through our case, hundreds and thousands of when people who don't normally follow means or politics. follow generally it's progress on larger years, larger been larger gage g nathan program with like a bit of dom is more than 1000000 subscribers flocked to his daily. sho, in part because he's no amateur brother, a veteran of the turkish airways. he spent the majority of his career and television, and still freelance, his cason and turret. but in 2017. he's what the main street for the life story. new york times to see them telling them i was seen and turks new york correspondent, the target market and there was an important hearing tied to a case that heavily involved turkey. um then the editorial management said they didn't want a daily report from outside the court. so i decided to follow the case myself. oh, really lose your monthly listen there, john maybe yogic does. is it more about it much?
11:52 am
i began broadcasting on youtube as a matter of necessity. what did i have to look? my amy man and old jack anchored to nick, i waited and was demand isn't the only mainstream. who's my great. ah. the man credited as turkey's digital pioneer is russian. chucker, where you go back in 2015 after repeatedly being censored. chuck a created a platform called medi disney attracted like mind a john and remains a talk talk a few channels, the independent news and and then the fact he quoted one until last year with a celebrated anchor on tv, one of the few non government aligned out the left, but off the several fine charge to the channel to come resigned and turn to the chief, taking his followers with him. but perhaps the most famous turkish you cheaper of late isn't actually a journalist to, to, he's the president. your show and give it to him,
11:53 am
get him. is it the doctor for that? i do on that in june 2021, hosted a live stream on youtube in an attempt to attract support from generation z. it back to thousands of criticisms poured in. and the hash tag, you won't receive our dotted trending one or the common section to be disabled. just only days later, he delivered this speech to members of his ruling policy. you can also measure the measure that and not looked up really beautiful cushion were soon. hi, lynette shifted fast forward 3 months. and the introduction of a new bill stipulating that all social media companies with more than 1000000 daily uses must open offices and turkey offices. that will soon have just 24 hours to delete content, the courses offense to the government for young with the system after the social
11:54 am
media took effect in october 2020 most international digital media corporation including youtube and google for filled the requirement appointing at 30 representatives so that's a government effort to increase control of social media sphere. has succeeded that charlotte device where we haven't yet seen the full effect of this loan. real test will be when the social media jaren's received denouncing the government like the lead this account or block this message. if they fully abide by the letter of the law, the digital spaces that is allowed for our voices to be heard will be limited. and will be eclipse. as a result, anyone trying to practice critical journalism will become a top 5. being a target of the government is something turkish journalists know to even have a joke for it. liberty sober toward which directly translate as significant must be
11:55 am
called. it refers to one of turkey's largest presence, the place where they could end up if they don't, to the government line. and many have dozens of journalists to remain in turkish jails. hundreds of trial on base the challenges, thousands of unemployed or they sell census. so it's easy enough to see why someone might be wary of pushing back against the one administration. playing it safe is something to me as critics have accused him. but when i put this to him, he told me he doesn't see it that way. to get that pulled at his own turkeys. so polarized that everyone wants to hear their own version of the truth, the 50 percent to support the government. only want to hear their version, the 50 percent, to oppose the government. only want to hear this, why we have open space between these 2 communities. that's why what we do a noise both. so we'll have to keep that of that awesome. get you dropped. it reduces video once a month. yup. the moment when i think that is broadcasting is lacking,
11:56 am
more with short can the little and that i would do a different however, noise we might be turning was and we have to accept that he is able to do something that i had last time. yeah. he can have everyone with program. i think he's making a choice choice not to attract critic. yup. my actual shot with the social media low looming over him to me it may be on to something that an election on the horizon in 2023. if not sooner, and there's a battle for the heart and mind, or rather for the clicks and votes of generation z, many of whom will be costing that balance for the 1st time. currently one sunlight and the social media battle is a lot more popular than the other. and the president noted the concern still that, of course, the government wants to keep social media under control. but i don't see it happening and such a diversified social media environment. campuses and the subject give us
11:57 am
a cup of this signal. if you shut down youtube, the twitter, if you shut down twitter, there's what's up. if you shut down what's up the signal, if you shut down signal, this telegram will always be another media. and finally, an update factor l ccs. egypt forced disappearances, torture and mass death sentences have grown common. yet those are stories that too often go on told. consider the numbers half of the egyptians currently behind bars . $60000.00 of them are political prisoners and half of them. 30000 people are in what's known as pre trial detention. their cases have on the court. they haven't been convicted of a crime. the prisons are jammed. according to amnesty international, they're holding twice the number of people that they were built for. so the release of our government video, a few weeks back hyping the facilities that a vast new prison complex just outside cairo and the care on offer. there was as
