5:32 pm
remain harmonious. and it is our custom to have our own differences result amongst ourselves in my cries in khartoum had been marching towards the presidential palace sedans, largest opposition coalition is rejected. the deal and calls for protests to continue more than 40 protesters have been killed since the military takeover allowed to occupied east jerusalem were israeli police say one person's been killed and 3 others have been injured during the shooting. it happened near the entrance to the alexa mos compounds to israeli police officers with an injured nestle says the attackers been killed. more police have been deployed to the area. polls of opened and bulgaria for a presidential run off, the countries failed twice to form a government. this year. the current president, roman writer, was seeking a 2nd 5 year term, as well as a political crisis that's grips the eaves for his country. or gary is also seeing a coven 19 surge. those are the headlines. these are going to continue here on our
5:33 pm
0 after the listening post. your by protests then john messenger just shortly said another old teen demonstration of being met with you 0 which has been covering the demonstration chief has been arrested. hello. i'm richard gilbert in europe. 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. to dance flirtation with democracy ends in a coup d'etat. how far will the hunter go to control? what we know about the story, the journalist arrested in the aftermath of the qu in me and mar, finally get their day in court. the jury is still out on the justice system that a far right journalist turn presidential contender, francis erickson moore, and the tv news channel behind his rival. and the meta verse is the next frontier,
5:34 pm
the mash up that exposes the fine line between facebook's attempts at p r. it's completely immersive and parody this past wednesday, november 17th and was supposed to be the day that sudan after more than 30 years under various forms of dictatorship, returned to civilian rule. that never happened just 3 weeks before the country's military was due to return to its barracks, handing over its share of power to civilians. the generals deposed the transitional government. they had been a part of and conducted a crew that triggered mass unrest, reminiscent of sudan revolution in 2019 that deposed the long time dictator, omar bashir. since then, it's been about controlling the streets and the narrative, through tactics to dan has seen before. protest or shot, the state broadcast or taken over journalists arrested the internet blocked out.
5:35 pm
but in a country that came so close to democracy, it could taste it. the population hasn't rolled over. activists are still finding ways including some low tech ones to organize. journalists are doing the same to get the story out. our starting point, this week is cartoon nearly 2 and a half years after the sudanese spring when mass demonstrations lead to the downfall of long time dictator, omar alba, sheer citizens, are back on the streets. ah, less than a month ago. a country that has spent 52 of the last 65 years under military rule was on the verge of restoring something. it hasn't had since 1989. it's democracy. i fell just 3 weeks. ah, this year was ousted by the military in april 2019. and then a power sharing agreement was put together between the civilian s f c. the forces
5:36 pm
for freedom and change, and the traditional military council, the t m. c. now this sovereignty council, this transitionary body, was only meant to be around for 3 years in 3 months, and then meant to hand over power to a civilian leader this week, but only 3 weeks ahead of this hand. every day we found ourselves in the military kid clara, which could actually take place for switching on t v dash b and seeing, you know, the sort of a miniature bambridge response bash and immediately then so that's and it's maureen will shift in the content and also that sort of aesthetics of s at and t p shifting back to more islam is signaling by presenting. also the content which was being shown on t v. and more importantly, wasn't just a state controlled sudan t v showed the crew leader abdel fata, out behind refusing to call the coo accrued i will, it'll fit without
5:37 pm
a soul. the lot o l m a lot of authority, you're not. hello, he branded the take over a corrective measure instead, tried to justify it as a continuation of the 2019 the alba, sheer revolution. and argued that the civilian military transitional government somehow posed a threat to peace and security. because it was unstable. having just de stabilized that government by overthrowing the august of all perhaps was the timing coincided with clear, ob, turn in a in spleen fortunes that this villas had not been doing very well in government or recently you know, key economic indicators to start to turn around the inflation had begun to full balance of trade and improved for sudan and i think those. ready instances of success started to worry, a military who had banked on civilians failing,
5:38 pm
and that failure, being there right back to power 4 days before the qu, sudanese took to the streets in their millions, across the country to deliver one particular message. it wasn't pro government protests, but it was pro democracy and anton military protest. the message was clear, we do not want military rule. perhaps this alliance of who plotters just realized that maybe now was the right moment to see. suppose that they can take a showdown between them and the sudanese people attempting to control the masses and the narrative. the military has borrowed tactics straight out of omar alba shares media and repression playbook. the takeover of the state broadcast and a communications blackout landline internet is still function. but the vast majority of student these rely on mobile data. 3, g, and fortune. and both have been shut down. that has left reporters cut off from
5:39 pm
their sources. their means of distributing information and has denied activists. the digital tools they rely on to organize the internet back out is quite clearly is to keep different resistance. it's huge. look back on the resistance movement from mobilizing beyond that, you know, businesses that have lost money because they're unable to contact their customers, adding precious security to revise this internet back up on the absence had previous experience with mobilizing people during internet blackouts in 2019 it's not as effective as to achieve might wanted to be in every area. there is a local resistance lee, and they have been able to disseminate information, an old school late in their house to house. they send out. why is the let people know people choosing to not go to work to grind the country to
5:40 pm
a holes in order to demonstrate the anger and their refusal to accept this military rule. so even though the military is trying to completely isolate the sudanese people and disconnect them from the world and each other, i have been completely awed and impressed by what they've been able to do despite all of the obstacles. it is really to the credit of protesters to demonstrate calling to that they have retained and nonviolent host. that non violent approach has absolutely confounded the military because they, they stand on the hands of streets with the tools in their hands. and it's very hard to respond. so no 3 are hyper aware of the optics and reality of violence can mean for their attempts to really maintain control over streets in another tactics straight out of the 2 plotters playbook, news organizations, both domestic and international, have been target journalists, organized
5:41 pm
a protest of their own this past week asylum symbolizing the authorities efforts to restrain their reporter. they've had their offices rate. some of their transmissions flocked to stop their versions of the story from getting to the outside world. we spoke with general albert hans, who would not comment on those measures or on the arrests of reporters columnists and editors, including al jazeera bureau chief in cartoon. all of them have spent time behind bars since october 25th and the day the military music started playing on sudan tv . ah, you had a blue mega shop correspondent, matt. bob and her crew were arrested and held for a couple of alison soon. but another quite prominent columnist of the newspaper and democrats, he is a silly, was arrested after giving an interview for as yet is heard of them here in which he criticized the case l. democracy is known to generally being favorable towards the
5:42 pm
transition and few days after the key security forces rated its headquarters and went to the home of its editor in order to arrest him as well. another thing it's worth to note, the fm relays for b, b, c, arabic and mold carlo radio, worst often cartoon. when you've so pre lays, you're trying to st. talk international media from reflecting what they are seeing competing against them. so the saddam becomes a small closed box for the propaganda. the regime or the home to here wants to spread. so the safety of journalists, it is at stake. news and the verification of what's happening in sudan is that state right down to the basics, like the casualty figures resulting from social unrest. this past wednesday, the day the transition to democracy was supposed to take place. 15 more protesters
5:43 pm
were killed that we know about. is that the whole story? with most of the internet closed for business, all those journalist arrested all the intimidation taking place. we just do not know. because freedom of expression in sudan has proved fleeting. the country is back to square one, or is it my rational response was, well this was never when you go get this coverage of demonstrations to account on social media. how people are mobilizing. that's actually what was cultivated in the last year. not loft. instead, actually, we could use it cannot undo 30 years of repression into people are finding ways around them, amplifying what's coming out from the ground. the saying we are going to have our
5:44 pm
own narrative. we are not going to compromise. we're not going to negotiate. we're not going to ship our this time around. we're going to fly in the narrative as well as industry ah. turning to me in march, now it's been 9 months since that military coup, the one that ousted the democratically elected unsung suit. chines your head's been following developments. nick the journalist arrested there the news outlets band where those legal cases stand. that media cracked on was to via at least 5 news outlets were banned. more than 125 journalists arrested, 47 of whom are still behind bars. now those cases are making their way through the courts military courts and the sentencing has been cause for alarm. starting with janice minyard from the democratic force of burma. he got sentenced to 3 years in prison for quote, criminal mutiny. and char a, d b reporter, and those are a freelancer for museum on use. they both got 2 years in prison. and then there's
5:45 pm
the american journalist, danny fenster, who worked for frontier and me and about 5 months ago he was arrested while trying to leave the country. last week he was sentenced to 11 years in prison for supposedly punishing fake news and an unlawful association with and the legal group, the unlawful association charged. that would be based on the work that fenster did for me and mar. now i news outlet that the one to his back, right, but the thing is mean more now, says that friends to stop working for them in july 2020. so 7 months before the arctic was banned. in other words, when fence was associated with that news outlet, it was perfectly legal. now, earlier this week, after an intervention, probably a better way to put it is pressure from the us through a former ambassador. the authorities dropped the charges against france does. so why would the authorities go to all vac trouble if they're just going to release the guy? it's hard to say the hunter is not wanting to make new enemies of outside governments
5:46 pm
. right now. it's feeling isolated. last month, the association of south east asian nations adrian, pardon me and mar, from attending it's by and your summit because the country had failed to implement a peace plan that had been agreed at home. it looks like the hunter is trying to consolidate power unsung to cheese now up on charges of election, ford and lowest actions in a trial that the media will not be allowed to attend. and then of course, you've got the $47.00 janda still in prison and the thousands of activists to took part in the anti cru demonstrations. many of them are still awaiting trial, and they probably isn't an ambassador coming to negotiate barriers. ok, thanks. france's presidential election is still 5 months away and one prospective candidate, a high profile journalist is shaping up as a big part of the story. eric is a more is a veteran polemicist. his hostility towards is lab and ethnic minorities has
5:47 pm
already earned him to convictions for hate speech. he's yet to declare himself a candidate, but multiple paws has the more in 2nd place, right behind the president and then your macro. he owes much of his popularity to see news or right wing channel that has long provided him with a platform for his punch tree. c, news is now francis 2nd most watched news channel. and despite having broadcast regulators on its case, seems to be having an agenda setting impact on politics there. but listening posts, daniel tory now on the rise of eric some more. and the mainstreaming of the far right in french me, ah, the com i think actually on do it, let me just have to saw for balls. could you just spell scott buses for you? so just as he does all over the country,
5:48 pm
he will have to do that when you pull up for us to give it to me, he may be inefficient candidate playing up for the height. his nationwide looks and sounds like the campaign run. so did his toward the beach where he debated. presidential contenders nazi, but the moved the more to it and the movie offending higher up from the more media coverage seems. yeah, we saw him on the front page of that image. he was swimming in the mediterranean sea with his young assistant. we kind of glamorize disease image and something that there with politicians in france would get. so he's been invited as well on by his shows. and the more is not even a politician yet, he's not even running
5:49 pm
a perennials all 3. so not a problem at the moment is not only that all the media outlets are talking about and using his rise as the justification which is understandable. but what raised this question is that any provocation he makes any racist sexist or homophobic comment? becomes the national debate then sassik under. and i think that he is the one setting the political debate in france that he did the rep when they moved public profile has been decades in the making. the french media have been central to his rides. he made his name in the 1990 s. as a political journalist with the right wing daily lithia whole, then became a television pond. it. it was in that role in 2011 and who was 1st convicted to find for hate speech. thought that he claimed on air that most drug dealers were black. arab in 2018,
5:50 pm
he was convicted again. this time of the saying that france had been quote, when faded by muslims, a. despite those offenses, the 2019 move landed his most prominent platform at sea use. a channel that had recently undergone of radical make over, under its own conservative millionaire fossil fuel, away sinews and the poultry, except one shouldn't come see news isn't exactly like any other channel in france's media regulation. there is a strong principle of internal pluralism, whereby different editorial perspectives are represented within a single news outlet. clarity of fee is that it's a more politically slanted channel, slanted to the right what. what did both good, lemme just mentioned the i really have that in the puzzle that it's created and it's hands an editorial line. they didn't really vis before and french television.
5:51 pm
and that's what has made c news. the success. if you get finished accepting news, lots to get out of that on that call to me and they designed to show specifically cater ethics. and i personally, it was called very long for facing the new web host. and several panelists commented on the news of the day that intruder couldn't be named in fact was that the key process, the balance due to coleman dash counter rita was at the popular key. mac had been african. what about mission men? lift up and i hope that someone else. so no one could see it was shown in reality, he was the main attraction on the show was based around the topics that he decided to ah, with them move on. board. see, news is ratings took off. as of last year,
5:52 pm
the channel began challenging its commercial rival, b, f. m t v. the toll position among fronting news networks, potassium news created more and more control vesee. the broadcast regulator. se began to take notice. in march issued its 1st ever find to a 24 hour news channels more had called migrant children, thieves rapists and murderers. on a runs that costs 200000 years. as frances election season began with more sounding more and more like a candidate, the regulator decided to treat him like one on the french or in september. the c. s . say quoted here in paris for seniors to drop them off at the paid a 100. however, since then, the channel seems to have doubled down on its fall right formula with them or, or without that me seen use recently played hosts to the following,
5:53 pm
to with the kind of inviting him to explain his influential conspiracy theory known as the great replacement for the budget that shows up, he claims that immigrants who make up less than 10 percent of the population on tracks replace is white christian, the theory as a central theme. with a more spite, his jewish algerian heritage village going on the channel has also been giving them plenty of bad times a get like this exchange with the french women of north african descent anesthesia porter. i don't want to give us a call back later on. it's probably the most common one, but you'll see i have to say i was stunned when i saw the clip. i've never seen something like that. some french television. it felt like something new was
5:54 pm
happening. i didn't see my dad was not sure why that was gonna be, but we want to be with the scene. didn't really make sense to me and it turns out there was an element of theater to it. it seems that this woman wasn't there by chance. she lives 40 kilometers away and the production team brought her that you have a new focus that i thought this didn't. she didn't really cross the line because this is not just about one woman removing her, he job. out of her own accord, we knew free. well, that they all knocked off kind of his number will be attacks in france already, and lots of women are being, are being attacked for wearing that he job. and now you see a potential presidential candidate who is calling very well supported by your tv channel. doing this as well. see news and its parent company cannot
5:55 pm
abuse, declined our request for an interview. however, said rules appeal is not the work of one channel or even the french medium load form right ideas have flourished. the citizens of great disillusion with mainstream parties and their failure to grapple with issues ranging from unemployment to terrorism. that helped the far right politician married le pen reached the 2nd round of the last presidential election in 2017. but the media also played a role piping her rise and boosting her visibility with the more it looks like deja through only because the scene use her with an even bigger platform. demography esco brasmer, it could even be valuable. switzerland before this week, except to moscow already. like i did, i did a video or says today if you watch french tv and you were muslim, black, you were job, you are
5:56 pm
a woman or homosexual. it is extremely violent because we're being constantly insulted by people like them and others, without anyone telling them what they do is consistently hurtful. and i think these debates create a state of tension in french society and tensions are the source of violence, especially what i want. i sort of, you know, and that's why you, instead of, you know, but johnny size best friend because he's been great of those around him. and while we talk about it, the more we don't talk about an employment, when we talk about the more we don't talk about any qualities while we talk about saying, well, we don't talk about climate change. and that's, i think, a big, big issue here because of course, we should talk about the war, but we can't be absorbed by his ideas either. and the problem in france at the, just anyone about what's happening in the campaign. and finally, facebook spin dealing with a succession of negative news reports on how the company has done so little to stop, hate speech and abuse on its side time for
5:57 pm
a re brand mark zuckerberg trying to reshape the narrative. so the sites parent company is now called meta, and there are plans for met averse using virtual reality to transform things like online video calls into 3 d experiences. but v are cannot possibly compensate for zocker bergs problem with p r. his presentation style is robotics. he's a mean waiting to happen, and the parody videos now include one produced by a tourism organization in iceland out to sell the real world. we're leaving you now with a mash up meta verse versus iceland verse. where would you rather spend your day? was the next time here at the listening to hey, and welcome to connect. today we're going to talk about the met averse. today. i want to talk about a revolutionary approach on how to connect the world without being super with the next platform and medium will be even more immersive and embodied internet where
