5:22 pm
airwaves journalism from behind bars in prisons across the u.s. inmates are reporting on a hidden world to ban or not to back the issue is political advertising social media sites are grappling with it and the washington post botches an obituary headline and the internet is not going to let the paper live it down. over the past month or so we've covered mass protest movements and the way those stories have been reported from hong kong to baghdad to beirut this week we're looking at chile and the largest demonstrations there since the end of the pinochet dictatorship almost 30 years ago the unrest was set off by a price hike on public transport but the larger context to all issues include rising inequality plus an unrepresentative political class news outlets include chile has the most concentrated media ownership in latin america there is a lot of resentment on the streets directed at t.v.
5:23 pm
channels accusations of too much airtime on looting not enough on either violations by the security forces or the underlying issues behind the civil unrest the historical backdrop is central to this story there's a deep lingering resentment of the news media which goes back to the pinochet era chileans remember that the 4th estate failed them utterly back then and they're saying that journalists still aren't listening to them today our starting point this week is the capital santiago. there is a perception that journalists are not telling the truth. this is connected to this to be. mostly private interest. most of the protest were shot by drones from really high in the air because they
5:24 pm
would have problems with a camera on the street the vans would be vandalized. and people say it's a protest and they all want something better for the country. on the other hand you have things terrible story of violence. bringing buses bringing car is. total destruction. the army on the streets in a state. of. mind one from what have the seventy's. and the body knows how it started and nobody knows for sure how will it. what began as a spontaneous protest over the rising cost of a subway ticket in santiago has morphed into a national movement that wants to talk about a much bigger issue inequality in chile. starting in the mid 1970 s.
5:25 pm
the country went down the neoliberal path embarking on a privatization binge the money markets approved but it left citizens having to shell out for a range of privatized services education health care pensions which many chilean say do not deliver enough the richest one percent holds more than a quarter of the country's wealth they are well positioned to affect if not control the news mary. nowhere in latin america is media ownership as concentrated as it is in chile which partly explains why the conflicts on the streets are not limited to protesters taking on security forces those protestors are also targeting journalists. and. television channels and mainstream radio have not carried balanced coverage and haven't reported the ill feeling on the street what t.v.
5:26 pm
channels have done is to remain on the side of the ruling class opinion makers and expert but what is the underlying issue is that the near liberal capitalist model is at the expense of social rights rights that was stolen during the dictatorship and which remains hijacked as neo liberalism with deep and democratic governments in the cell that underlie. you know. what has happened here is enormous protests fueled by social outrage and the media has felt but willed it. to manage the situation this is a movement that doesn't have leaders converting the masses represents them who can journalists' dialogue with how can t.v. manage process and present the social media. and we have to remember that almost the entire media actually belongs to private corporations that kind of power they suppress and in the way they control the media
5:27 pm
so even when a journalist is trying to show or depict a kind of image of the mobilization ultimately what people perceive is that this vested interests are manufacturing the kind of news and the kind of portray of any type of. a recurring grievance of protestors is the chilean media's emphasis on conflict at the expense of context they accuse privately owned channels such as mega v.c. on and channel 13 of feasting on images of looting and violence while starving audiences of analysis of the underlying causes of the unrest the agendas at play are not merely ideological they are commercial to the ratings chase and t.v. and the national broadcaster is no different like other state owned institutions in chile it has had a neo liberal make over t.v.
5:28 pm
and is reliant on ad revenues in a way public broadcasters in other countries are not leading to coverage that leans towards the sensation. the way you see west see watching the news i remember very clearly the screen divided into this t.v. and on one side of the screen you had a fire in the street and this went on. this fire on the screen the most important thing visually was this fire and what does it mean fire in a context like this means riots danger. the form of media that dominates chile streets is social it's where protesters organize get their news and share stories of news coverage that fall short and it isn't just domestic news outlets and reporters feeling the heat foreign journalists are too now the hike in the metro al-jazeera is correspondent to recent poll was targeted after this life get stuck
5:29 pm
at the fringes of a protest for technical reasons she had demonstrators going after her not for anything she said but because of what her camera will show you never. know with any . detail. the social media campaign was aggressive complete with death threats she left the country after being assaulted on the street you can see on facebook and twitter and instagram all this hashtags like don't trust journalists don't trust the elite turn off the t.v. . turn off this particular station and there is this anger people in the street say oh you know you're not covering this you're not covering that you can get a t.v. station a traditional news outlet to behave as a social media showing everything at the same moment in the same way so it's very challenging and there is the lack of trust in elites and the media belongs to the
5:30 pm
elite. looming over the media story in chile is some dark history of the pinochet dictatorship which lasted from 1973 until 990 and the country's oldest bestselling newspaper elmer curio has more to answer for than most in the early seventy's the paper was bankrolled by the cia. paid millions of dollars to produce stories to destabilize the democratically elected government of leftist president salvador allende it then went on to cover up brutal human rights violations committed by the pinochet regime which killed thousands of chileans many of the demonstrators have long memories and it's no wonder that the paper's offices in the coastal city of valparaiso were broken into and satellite. media you know is being asked about their support for the 973 could and then with
5:31 pm
this being asked when they want to ban me a cult they haven't done it till now and they're not going to do it so we need to know what perspective of this right way and media outlets how on reality is it trying to maintain the economic model or is it trying to protect its business interests is it trying to retain its privileges and has a meeting with daily media sister got interested in miami. we have come from a dictatorship where the military had an important role this is a memory a painful memory you know the attack against selma could you know is symbolic it is a very important newspaper in chile associated with a right wing movement that was in line with pinochet you cannot talk about chile without knowing what could he has said. of the 2. days into the demonstrations president sebastian pinera declared a state of emergency while surrounded by men in uniform it was
5:32 pm
a sharp visual reminder as though chileans needed one of the past. later appearing before the live cameras thing yet i added that declaration of war against the demonstrators one in which journalists are more than just collateral damage. the media watch and geo reporters without borders says media workers have been arbitrarily and. violently arrested and targeted with tear gas and shot at with rubber bullets and live ammunition to get him. but unlike 973 this time everybody has a front camera and a chance to tell the story. so you have tons of food which of people reporting in the streets sure tonight's hot based and you have to put this in a larger context is the one of 1973 and the coup d'etat. it can be if we in 7 days we have just tons of food showing that cross it is
5:33 pm
committed by police officers and so. can you imagine the level of violence committed by the time. we're discussing other media stories that are on our radar this week with one of our producers johannah joe along with hate speech fake accounts misinformation the big social media platforms have been grappling with this issue of political advertising we've seen a lot of talk on it let's start with facebook what's the policy there and why is the company getting so much flack over well richard facebook has become an integral part of political campaigns around the world and it gets a lot of criticism for running political ads without fact checking them c.e.o. mark zuckerberg last question last month at a congressional hearing in washington and this is how he defended facebook's policy so it's good to democracy i believe that people should be able to see for themselves.
