7:33 am
social media and podcast. al jazeera digital is a world of award winning online content and portal bring view the very best of it. they're trying to frighten the people to levy to go somewhere else. but the truth is that they've got nowhere else to go. so if you miss it online, caps it here with me and her gotten on out is in the us government has want it's a pale as a high coaching edition, i believe founded julian has the u. s. ones assigned to face trial over the release in 2010 of thousands of classic going off to the publisher of information that a government deemed classified will. secret is a pretty, a liberal and authoritarian thing to do a warmer to gilbert in europe. 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, a song is now one legal step closer to being extradited to the us. we look at
7:34 am
a case that not enough news organizations care about. what did fox news hosts really think about the dc riots last january, 6th, their text messages to the white house that day. tell a story. the turks 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. ah, egypt, one of the world's worst jailers of journalists releases a bizarre promo video. it's been a week now since a pair of judges in the london gave the go ahead for the extradition of julian sonjee to the united states. amnesty international called that ruling, a travesty of justice. press freedom groups have also condemned it in terms just escaping washington wants to prosecutor signs for revealing state secrets that happened to include war crimes. revelation is that wiki leeks,
7:35 am
and the journalists and news outlets that reported those secrets as new stories deemed to be in the public interest. not enough of those news outlets are standing out for a song now, given how important to source he and wiki leaks were back, that this latest court decision overturned an earlier ruling, which opposed extra. dieting assigns due to his failing health and the conditions he would 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. here's what i need. friday, december 10th, 2021 day a high court in london, ruled the julian astonished, could be expedited to washing happened to united nations human rights. it was the same day 2 other journalists were receiving them. nobel,
7:36 am
diplomacy. it was also the vital 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 on the us where the biden administration was concluding. it's big summit for democracy. we've shown a spotlight on the importance of protecting media freedom, convinced 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 not instruction in support of press, freedom of being the, a pre requisites for democracy. and so it was frankly, grotesque to have on this day a british high court,
7:37 am
allowing fontas extradition or the last word on whether julian sancha can be legally extradited to face charges for publishing, classified us government documents will now come from the you case, supreme court. this latest ruling came following several assurances made by the us to the british government that a sonjee 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,
7:38 am
the assurances the british court put so much stockings were made by a country that has a hat of reneging on its international agreements. when you read the text of those assurances, you real quickly realized that those assurances didn't assure anything at all. the u. s. has promised this thought a lot 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 not 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 are in solitary confinement under different regime. so to put it bluntly, they really haven't 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 handing over a political prisoner to his executioners,
7:39 am
or at least people who discussed seriously bumping him off, no doubt with the aid of evidence. they couldn't do it without their so these assurances are not were for anything quite home of the given the implications, the assange case has for other journals, the news coverage. i've consistently comes on shore in terms of both scale and child outlets. the feast on what which leaks review about the wars in iraq and afghanistan, the dark side of american diplomacy, the god in the morning news organizations like the garden, 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
7:40 am
a distinct lack of enthusiasm for the story. the times has not put out an editorial, honest orange since 2019 all 3 o'clock 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 julie an assault. the b, b, c, coverage of the ruling was typically a bland report from studio. they had to interview and assigned his wife and they had to interview one other and supported because it would have been too obvious not doing that. but the report of standing outside the court thinking the bulk of that report was getting government critically. the us now getting very key assurance that mr. a staunch no matter how mentally ill he may be, will be treated humanely. and the americans who do shore and says, et cetera, et cetera. the last case was worried about 2 that was enough to convince the to the
7:41 am
most senior churches in the country that it will be dc has increasingly. but now the voice of the british day, at the end of the day, the us is a democracy. there are protections within its whole judicial system and its 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 reading and prosecuting joanna songs, we could see the very media partners that have published information based on these liter documents targeted. not the too often news organizations take. their editorial leads from politicians that has created another gaping hole in the
7:42 am
narrative around julian. they don't think a lot of the care storm or heads 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 head the case crown prosecution. so, back in 2012, when prosecutors in sweden were considering dropping their bogus sexual assault investigation into songs, british prosecutors 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 scales of swedish justice on here stormers watch. don't expect him to rock the boat on the role played by kiss. darma is probably the most appalling
7:43 am
road played by a british politician in this whole case because the so called rapes didn't take place, and yet they got centrally involved under kiss darma. when he was there, pleading with the swedes don't withdraw your case. most certainly un reporter on torture ravine. so the head of the opposition into 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 ricky leaks. i'm all up to traffic to safety. come on and none of them are interested in the media focusing on those revelations and discussing government misconduct because clearly that would have led to legal proceedings potentially even against a political leaders. ah, instead it's julie and assad's locked up in
7:44 am
a london prison. recovering from a minor stroke, under maximum security conditions. a journalist treated like a menace to society. what he really is, is a menace to governing secretive ones, including to that like to talk up their democracies and export their values. so called people, especially the u. s. u k. want to believe that we have rule of launch the same fundamental rights and freedoms that we promote in all parts of the world. but what is happening to julian 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 turning to american politics. now the investigations into the january 6th capitol hill riot are proving damaging to fox news. terracon offer is keeping
7:45 am
a social distance, but he's here with the details. well, richard, the story is about what fox news hers were publicly telling 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 kill meet. will all pro trump and still are, 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,
7:46 am
given what they told their viewers that night and thereafter that left them with some explaining to them. 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, art surprise, surprise, surprise, this st. 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 the mag and movement. now, there were likely not all tramps importers,
7:47 am
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 and t for reference to the left wing anti fascist, 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,
7:48 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. all the mayor has his critics, however, they say his decision to remain editorially neutral, makes him complicit in what this government dies in the 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. the listening posts flow phillips now on the turkish journalist to have swept the broadcast airwaves for life on youtube. no, they, they say muscle. and turkeys interior minister, president, one lloyd. i got a minute. so she got a crown and my mother, mary, this done go a central figure in the main opposition on j mazda, which shame
7:49 am
a bad actress and fashion design. a tough leopard. what are they all have in common talk? is it that i didn't get a chance nor my shot back? and then 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's 3 packages. i said, i'm not midnight. i launched a live broadcast, breaking news style and economy. that's sort of the book of you said ronda is to partner either at 3 a m a 150000 people were still watching these of serial number digit which the you talk to me dude i the resignation of the finance minister was be,
7:50 am
can you just not on t v i did on 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 integrity. so you tube has become a go to not just the mainstream journalists looking for a digital refuge, but the viewers looking for independent information delivered in an appealing way possible. jeanette was limited. tornadoes, demure style suits you tube. it's an entertainment plot for more than it is and information science. so success depends on how much you can engage with and ties to, to show up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up. are just more than site here to nathan been asked before about jaleece has been inspired by american lately talking and he's mixed in his own sooner. american. it's a style that really works for generation zeal, mucus. regarding ranaldo, the trickier. what fool made it got parcher lamarcus through arcus hundreds and
7:51 am
thousands of women. people who don't normally follow means or politics. follow jimmy, it's program all larger, it's larger, been larger gauge to nathan program. the thought bit those dom is more than 1000000 subscribers flocked to his daily sho, in part because he's no amateur. rather a veteran of the turkish airways. he spent the majority of his career and television and still free lances for san antonio. but in 2017, he's what the main street for the lives 3 new york times to see them cherished him . i was seen and turks new york correspondent about talking about margaret. and there was an important hearing sides of a case that heavily involved turkey online at the, at a story management said they didn't want a daily report from outside the court. so i decided to follow the case myself. your name again, last name is john. they kicked about that much. i began broadcasting on you as
7:52 am
a matter of necessity. what did i have to lose? my amy man in old jack anchored to nick, i waited him. was the man isn't the only mainstream? who's my great? ah, the man credited as turkey's digital pioneer is russian chucker, where you're going back in 2015 after repeatedly being censored. chuck a created a platform called media. instantly attracted like minded journalists and remains a top tucker youtube channel independent news, and then the fatty quarter until last year, with a celebrated anchor on fox tv. one of the few non government lined out the left, but off the several fine charge to the channel protocol, resigned and come to the queue, taking his followers with him. but perhaps the most famous turkish he cheaper of late isn't actually a journalist to. he's the president usually give it to me,
7:53 am
gave him, is it talk to a lot of services 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 and also met met the major that and not looked up really be cooking shows on high, 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 in turkey offices that will soon have just 24 hours to delete content. the courses offense to the government for young with the system to
7:54 am
the social media took effect in october 2020 most international digital media corporation, including youtube and google for fill out the requirements appointing at 30 representatives. so that the government effort to increase control of social media sphere has succeeded that, as in charlie of ice, we haven't yet seen the full effect of this mon. real test will be when the social media joins received the nouns from 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 journals and 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 cold. it
7:55 am
refers to one of turkey's largest presence, the place where they could end up as they did to the government line, and many half, dozens of journalists to remain in turkish jails. hundreds on trial on the basis challenges thousands of unemployed, or they sell sensors. so it's easy enough to see why someone might be wary of pushing back against the other one and ministration. 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 to keep that of that awesome get you dropped it resistance video once a month. yep. the moment when i think that is broadcasting is lacking more with
7:56 am
shortcomings 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 had lost. he can have everyone with program. i think he's making a choice choice not to attract criticism that 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 control still that of course, the government wants to keep social media on the control. but i don't see it happening and such a diversified social media environment campuses and was subject give us
7:57 am
a copy this signal. if you shut down youtube, this 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 would always be another media. and finally, an update factor l ccs. egypt, forest, disappearances, torture and mass death sentences have grown common. yet those are stories. the 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
