a far right journalist turns presidential contender, frances eric. so moore and the tv news channel behind his rivals and the met averse is the next frontier, 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 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 su dan's revolution in 2019 that deposed the long time dictator. omar bashir. since then, it's been about controlling the streets and the narrative,
8:35 am
through tactics to dan has seen before. protest or shot, the state broadcast or taken over journalists arrested the internet blocked out. 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 spread when mass demonstrations led to the downfall of long time dictator omar albert ship 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.
8:36 am
ah, bishop 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 for freedom in change and the transitional 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, people that actually take place was switched on t v dash b and seeing, you know, the sort of a military back in the military songs fresh and immediately then. so that's and it's more it'll shift in and the content and so that sort of aesthetics of s at and t b shifting back to more islam is signaling by presenting. also the content which was being shown on t v. and more importantly, wasn't

a state control the sudan tv showed the crew leader, abdel factor, albert hein refusing to call the clue today? i will. it will fit without a solar lot o l m a lot of authority. you're on have blood, he branded the take over a corrective measure, instead, try 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 di, stabilized that government by overthrowing the ugliest of all perhaps was the timing coincides with clear upturn in a in spleen, fortunes that this villas had not been doing very well in government or recently, you know, key economic indicators would start to turn around at the inflation had begun to

full pounds of trade in a group for sudan, and i think those instances of success started to worry, and military who had banked on civilians failing, and that failure being iraq 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 may be 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 tactic, 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 sudanese rely on mobile data 3, g, and fortune. and both have been shut down, that has left reporters cut off from their sources, their means of distributing information. and as the night activists that digital tools, they rely on to organize the internet. that is quite katy is to keep different resistance each. look the back of the resistance from mobilizing beyond that, you know, businesses that have lost money because they're unable to contact their customers, adding precious regime to revise this internet back up. and the assistant 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
8:40 am
a local resistance, lee, and they have been able to disseminate information, an old school ways in your house to house. they send out. why is the let people know people choosing to not go to work to grind the country to a holes in order to demonstrate that 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 posted. and that nonviolent approach has absolute confounded literature because they, they stand on the ends of streets with the tools in their hands. and it's very hard to respond. so those are your hyper aware of the optics and reality of violence can be for their attempts to really maintain control over st. in another

tactic, straight out of the 2 plotters playbook, news organizations, both domestic and international have been target journalists, organized a protest of their own. this past week assignment, 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 bloomberg. i shop correspondence. mad. bold and her crew were arrested in health for a couple of allison in another quite prominent colon. this of the newspaper and

democracy 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 generally being favorable to what's the 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 mold, carlo radio, worst soft, and her tune. 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 at stake. right
8:43 am
down to the basics, like the casualty figures resulting from social unrest. this past wednesday, the day that transition to democracy was supposed to take place. 15 more protesters were killed. that we know about. is that the whole story with most of the internet closed for business, all those journalists 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 mobilizing that hope is actually what was cultivated last year, not lost. and instead actually we didn't put it under the law. it cannot undo 30 years of repression. people are finding ways around and
8:44 am
amplifying what's coming out from the ground. the saying, we are going to have our 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 in the street, ah, turning to me and mar, now it's been 9 months since that military coup, the one that ousted the democratically elected on songs to cheat. nick, your head's been following developments. nick, the journalist arrested there. the news outlets band. where did those legal cases stand? that media cracked on was to via at least 5 news outlets were banned. more than a 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 journalist men,
8:45 am
y'all from the democratic force of burma. he got sentence to 3 years in prison for quote, criminal mutiny and char, a, d b reports, and those are a freelancer for ms. human newspaper. got 2 years in prison, and then is the american journalist danny fence. the who works for frontier me and 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 any legal group. the unlawful association charge that would be based on the work that fenster did for me in mar. now i news outlet that the one to his back. right. but the thing is mean more now says that fence to stop working for them in july 2020. so 7 months before the arctic was banned, in other words, when the fence that 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 drop the charges against france does. so why
8:46 am
would the authorities go to all that 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 . right now. it's feeling isolated. last month, the association of south east asian nations. and pardon me and me off from attending it's by and your summit because the country has failed to implement a peace plan that had been agreed at home. it looks like the hunt is trying to consolidate power. unsung to cheese now up on charges of election, ford and lawless 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 their release. ok, thanks. france's presidential election is still 5 months away and one prospective candidate, a high profile journalist is shaping up as
8:47 am
a big part of the story. eric is a more is a veteran. polemicist is hostility towards islam and ethnic minorities has already earned him to convictions for hate speech. he is 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. see new is just now francis 2nd most watched news channel. and despite having broadcast regulator is on its case, seems to be having an agenda setting impact on politics there. the 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,
8:48 am
let me just pull up the results. could you just the news about the producer, joshua does all the really good. just simply like to do that when you pull off of one of those rooms in one to me, he may be inefficient candidate. every paying off for the height nationwide. looks like the campaign run. so did his tour tv studios where he debated presidential contenders so people on the move, the more tuition and the more the offending my printer. i think the more media 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
8:49 am
there with politicians in france would, 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 a perennials. all 3 similar 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 a national debate then sussex under. and i think that he is the one setting the political debate in france that he did you give up 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 defeat whole, then became a television pond. it. it was in that role in 2011 north was 1st convicted to find
8:50 am
for haiti off the he claimed on air that most drug dealers were black, arab in 2018. he was convicted again. this time for saying that france had been, quote, quite 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 away sinews, and the pose audrey exact dimension could be seen, 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 the way it is that it's a more politically slanted channel, slanted to the right way,
8:51 am
both greece. lemme just mentioned that the i really have done the puzzle that it's created and it sounds an editorial line. they didn't really vis before, and french television. and that's what has made c news and more, you know, you get finished getting lots to get out of that on the call to me. and they designed to show specifically catered ethics more nasty. it was called a long full facing the new web host and several panelists comment on the news of the day. but in truth, it couldn't be named, in fact, was that the key for the balance due to kill get goldman dash cameras pita, was that the popular key mac had been african prepare measurement set up and i hope that someone else. so no one could see it was show in reality, he was the main attraction. and the show was based around the topics that he
8:52 am
decided to ah, with them move on. board see news is ratings took off. as of last year, the channel began challenging its commercial rival, b, f n tv, the whole position among frances news networks, potassium use created more and more control receive. the broadcast regulator essay began to take notice. in march issued its 1st ever find to a 24 hour news channels, more had called migrant children, thieves were rapists and murderers. on a run that costs 200000 years i, france's election season began with more sounding more and more like a candidate. the regulator decided to treat him like one on the french north. in september, the c. s. a quoted here in paris for seniors to drop them off at the paid on 100. however, since then,
8:53 am
the channel things to have double down on it's far right formula with them or, or without that me seen use recently played host to the far right to with the time inviting him to explain his influential conspiracy theory known as the great replacement for the shows that it brought up. he claims that immigrants who make up less than 10 percent of the population on tracks replace is white christian. the theory is 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 just in a senior support. i don't want to give us a call back later on. it probably will come back. what would you say it's in. i
8:54 am
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 happening. i did not know . i think that will show up why don't we want to be with the scene. didn't really make sense to me. and it turns out that 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 can have a new focus with me. i thought this didn't really cross the line because this is not just about one woman removing her. he job out of her own accord. we know free well that they all knocked off kind of his and when we got taxing france already, and lots of we men are being, are being a thank for wearing that he job. and now you see

8:56 am
all you don't get the idea of who says today, if you watch french t v and who are muslim, black, you were a job. you are 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 generals and that's why he stayed out of you know, but johnny size best friend because then rate a buzz around him. and while we talk about 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 seeing what 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 more, 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
