3:02 pm
a raid near the city of janine earlier palestinian president, mackwood abbas said that he'll be seeking justice for her death at the international criminal court. he paid tribute to shaheen at the state service held in our home in our honor. here you, mother, today we are here to pay our respect to sharing. i will aqua the martyr of palestine the the martyr of jerusalem and a martyr of free speech and a free roll dog, a symbol of the palestinian them in money. a symbol of the palestinian journalists . sharina has sacrificed their life to defend its course and the cause of the palestinian people. shauryn was an honest voice, a patriotic wash. and national was that conveyed the message of the families of the prisoners, the sufferings of the palestinian people. the sufferings of those living in the camps, the sufferings of those who have been hit everywhere. it's a crime to kill sheree, an album o'clock,
3:03 pm
but such crime is not the 1st of its kind. dozens of journalists have lost their lives. palestinian journalists have lost their lives. the authorities of the is really occupation are to be blamed for killing sure in this crime will never be able to stop free speech. such a crime will definitely be punished. the perpetrators will be punished. we refused any joint investigation committee with israel, your thirty's, because they have committed such a crime. we don't trust them and we'll go immediately to the international criminal court in order to fight the perpetrators and criminals, the palestinian prime minister, as among others who have been paying tribute to sharon. sharon is a national figure as thorough a valuable light lady, professional journalists. so emotional when it comes to things so beneficial when it comes to journalism, it but 3 dick, ballast indian,
3:04 pm
even though she has an american passport, but her roots are so deep rooted in jerusalem and her family as well. and i have seen sharing absolutely nearly everywhere in condolences house is in celebrations and demonstrations and citizens. she, nene, is not only a correspondent is not only a journalist, but also she lived the cases. and she was really part of the event. and she was reporting about every single detail of their by the scene and daily life. and now it is everything that people are reporting about children at a time when she was reporting about authors. it's sent out to 0, senior political analyst, my one rachada joins us now live from london. mo, on some of us were fortunate enough to know her personally. most people, lo knew her only through her work. what do you make of this public outpouring of grief from, from let's face of people who are in a really new sharyn. so the tv screens,
3:05 pm
this is the fact that she's been there for them for over a quarter of a century. she has been there in their homes. it's kind of paradoxical when you're so far away yet. so you're so omnipresent in people's homes or something about television, especially in places like palestine, but also in the out of world where family is gathered around. whether it's a breakfast time or dinner table, and there's that tv or was on and a lot of a lot of households al jazeera that's on because al jazeera made this reputation for being able to do brick news all the time. and clearly, palestine is at the heart and mind of countless by the sinews and arabs. no, it's that center nervous you where the, the center over the motions of settling for garcia, but also for countless arabs. so in a sense the likes of sharing and her colleagues where part of those households.
3:06 pm
there were members of the families, counters, families, if you will, and garza unwind on the west bank. well, you can certainly cannot travel there. the only way you can be somehow turns form transmitted that is through the likes of al jazeera and the likes of serene. her voice, her soothing calm and collected voice, trying to read the report. what goes on in the day to day life, or every palestinian in the camps and the vintages and the towns. but also when it comes to the prisoners and, and the mosques and on so on, so forth. you know, when you can really, when you have that talent, when you have that capacity of transmitting the systematic and the structural, depression and oppression of better citizens on a daily basis to the rest of palestine. you are an incredible assets at. but you are also a member of the family. the been cool for an independent international investigation
3:07 pm
into ha mud, doug, given the international coverage that has been off of her death. do you think that this time, this time, perhaps we'll get a credible investigation into armada? i'm afraid not, i would hope so. you know, we always speak about the optimism of the heart and the best in was in the mind and . and that actually speaking and electrically speaking politically speaking, i am not optimistic that washington and other european capitals are gone. you know, to get off their hands and try to do something for a change. the sort of thing they've been trying to do in ukraine, but they don't do in palestine. i mean, honestly, adrian, if this thing happened in ukraine with the americans,
3:08 pm
ask the russians to get involved an investigation. would he be calling for an independent investigation? because before saying, i know this crime was committed by the russian this and that. why isn't it in this case where there's a long track record over 50 years of israeli occupation years of our party when? because many of those governments that are able to enforce an independent or investigation through a united nation type mechanism, care more about the actor than the act. if the act that was russian, it's a crime. if the act that was is really to, well are, you know, we'll see maybe an investigation, but let these ready take care of it, meaning let in bury it. and thus the situation with involvement. and that's why i think the, the, the, the, the international public court as it where is more important than any investigation
3:09 pm
. and i think in the sense, if the israeli is and the way the united states is talking about investigation supply, to bury a crime against our colleague against a palestinian a journalist. and in that sense, i think we need to continue to search for the truth. but i think in the end of the day, the truth will be found not only by or behind the whole pulled the trigger, but who gave the orders to re jenny and again and to have that kind of a shooting policy shooting at 2 of our target that is, that moves even one that has pressed sort thing all over. it is north who devised a policy of occupation on colonialism and i partied. these are the ones who are responsible and we don't need an investigation for that. what do you think? chevy ins, legacy will be on the i know, i know you, you viewed like many of us, we don't want to think of spin in the past tense here, but, but what do you think her legacy will be?
3:10 pm
what just those sites that you played, adrian, i mean al jazeera and shirley and have been quite critical of the palestinian authority and yet the palestinian authority. ready it's, it's president and its prime minister, and i have been praising sharyn to day no, not to the, to the entire palestinian people and to the over to one good listen, indiana world, and international. why, despite her criticism, despite that critical coverage of al jazeera and occupied territories, and they want a lot of moments of major tension between the network and the penicillin or 30 because of had credibility. i think it's that a memory over a credible journalist at measures objective and yet passionate and had bash. it is . you know, the old roman lepus yoni as they call it, where pain, a love cannot be separated. she had that pain for her tortured homeland. she
3:11 pm
had love for her tortured homeland and yet she was able to do her job objectively. all was searching for the facts, all was cool and collected, always measured unflinchingly. so for 25 years, i tell you i wouldn't be able to last 25 days, covering a crime scene called the occupied palestinian thirties called palestine called apartheid. and yet you have these journalists who are able for 25 years to hold their own, to hold back their nerves not to get involved personally in the issue that they are covering to be able to present the facts as they are passionately yet objectively. would love with pain, but always, always professionally. al jazeera senior political analyst, my one bashar there in london. my, when many thanks. israel says it will investigate, should ins,
3:12 pm
killing that is offered to do it in conjunction with palestinian officials in a tweet pillow executive committee member who st. i'll shake, explain why they've declined. israel requested a joint investigation and asked for the bullet that assassinated sharon. we refused that the tweet said we affirm that our investigation would be completed independently and we will inform her family, the u. s. cutter and all official and popular authorities of the results of the investigation. all indications evidence and witnesses confirm. she was assassinated by israeli special units and video analysis of where sharon was killed contradicts israel's original account of the shooting. al jazeera capielo has hobby on exclaims, are just out of the hot book. shortly after sharina lockley was killed, the israeli government began circulating this video. it shows an arm palestinian
3:13 pm
firing his weapon. israel says it shows how the veteran al jazeera correspondent was likely shot by palestinian gunfire and not by its forces. but that's disputed by rights groups. witnesses and journalists have analyzed the video. israel says this is where the palestinian fighter opened fire. from this point, jerusalem based human rights organization selim says there are too many walls, alleys and buildings, blocking the site where sharin was shot. and gps verification and dozens of video clips shows. this is where is really soldiers were located as a rated a home. and janine it shows a direct line of fire to where sharon was shot and killed. the site is also far from the palestinian resistance fighter who was about 260 meters away. i guess not selim says israel's version of events is based on a false narrative designed to protect the perpetrators there
3:14 pm
is no line of sight between one location and the other. and in fact, our researcher, it is taking him a few minutes to walk from one location to the other location, the announcement on investigation as well as israel's mosca tried and unfortunately successful. it tricks in their blanket, impunity didn't resume, provides itself a witnesses is really forces were not under attack, was laud. when the journalists arrived, they were surprised because the occupation forces were closing the street with their military vehicles and then they started shooting at them. a man tried once again to retrieve sharon's body for we were not aware at that point that she had been killed. he tried to provide 1st aid to her not so they started shooting at him and the bullets hit a tree over his head. the guys who were not throwing stones, nor shooting, there was no form of resistance. for me, the european union has called for an independent investigation into her death. and the u. s. envoy to the un has call for sharina killing to be transparently
3:15 pm
investigated. but israel has a track record of not punishing at soldiers who committed crimes against palestinians. and it's never jailed one of his soldiers for the killing of a journalist. katya lopez with a young al jazeera lock. and jones is an assistant professor of medley studies, had been calling for university. he explains how israel is likely to use public relations tactics to shift responsibility for sharon's motor. the israeli states is very used to managing these crisis situations in which the kil palestinians citizens or journalists. so what they've done is they've already had a narrative. and that narrative is that there was an ambiguity about the killing of sri. and in this case, there was a possibility that it could've been palestinians. we know this is very implausible . however, this narrative was put up very early. the video in question was published by the ministry of foreign affairs, which as a track record and using social media to disseminate falsehood. if you remember
3:16 pm
recently when amnesty international released in a port accusing israeli state apartheid minister of foreign affairs took an ad on google accusing amnesty of anti semitism. so we know that they have these strategies in the pipeline with regards to sheree, and they obviously want to use at this time because this time is crucial. and i can't emphasize this enough. this is the moment where there's going to be the most outpouring of outrage and grief about the killing of charade. so if they can cast doubt, if they can muddy waters around the death serene by possibly getting newspapers in the international fair to suggest that she was killed by a palestinian, they have been successful. and in reality, this is what happened, the garden newspaper and you can be p. c. i've already been very clear about putting israeli version of events very high up on, in the reporting event. and so this is a huge, huge problem and it's a deliberate strategy. i would say from the israeli p. r team to actually to try and muddy the waters around the killing while it all maria's,
3:17 pm
i'll just here as palestine bureau chief, he says that israel's attempt to spin the narrative on shillings giving his future futile. we know the truth and we know the fact we don't need any results of fake investigation. at least everybody know we have the witnesses who was with it should be in the field. and i was there ended up we had and i knew the situation that it's of an area, wasn't there any classes, wasn't in any positions or shooting who was controlling the whole area was the soldiers and it was neighbors. and the house is there. and they showed who killed city and a block injured, some movie or other colleague, really, it was targeted this people in your maybe who's working and who's the, this is jonas's city, is very famous and very, and on everywhere,
3:18 pm
not only. and she's not the new indices, he was there many times. and at least it's really that day for the freedom of speech in the whole world. and it's, it said date for us and our police. it said the for the seniors and see over as soon as we're condemned. what's happening with the city in a block, lee, and south, over thousands of people. there were but distributed in this everywhere. the amount of capital says that those responsible for the death of shipping aqua must be held accountable. he's expressed his condolences to her family and says that her murder by occupation forces was a crime shake from him. been homage tani is in. tell ron for talks for the runs president on the stalled nuclear deal. reporter yuma outside is in garza where there's been a solidarity rally today. we're here in an upstate university. this time we're
3:19 pm
dozens of palestinians have gathered, doesn't that the officials have gathered to express their condolences and their deepest solidarity, the city and a bach law, where they would always remember, they've seen her for many years. they've brought up watching her on their screens. they know shooting for the person despite never missing her. her name has always been in every palestinian home. her memory shall stay in their minds and in their homes and in the back of their minds for. 2 as long as they live, i rather has a palestinian symbol for the whole palestine or around the world. and in garza, i was raised on her voice and every single corner in our house. my father and my mother knew her since birth. oh, they told me i learned about her about her grown. we didn't grow up. uh she was, she has. oh, she lived in bethlehem who lived in our lives and joe rosalyn. she has always been
3:20 pm
a good defender about the bullet damian coast. as many palestinians here had expressed love a tribute to serene by crying songs in words they had made to express this love. bratia shower is a friend of shipping that explains what she meant for palestinians. every one standing here has his own story, was shooting as friends we experienced with had this amazing person viewed sort of an innocent little christian jordan was too old, was waited for shooting to tell us a story. we're losing today. a great story teller, a supporter of freedom, a supporter of a focus, white people suffer from bobby standard, suffered from occupation from racism from terrorism. and today i think when should
3:21 pm
he left us lift over our shoulders, a huge responsibility to continue the message and to hold the letter that we are the people of freedom. we do have to ride the police team. people have the full right of self determination and to protect our future's, our kids, the future when we live. and we can see our kids do have the same rights because unfortunately, every day we're suffering from people give them sort of the right to execute us. as the palestinian soul has no value at all the last time we saw the presidential place full of this amount due to amount, you can see the headsets there. it's when we said good bye to yasser arafat ordered me to st leader. so it's, i think the philistine people are giving a good will fit that she deserves here in ramallah intermodal proceed. and i believe if the boarders were open for the seniors will came from all around the world from garza, from jerusalem, from abroad to say good bye. to sharon towered khattab as
3:22 pm
a journalist and former deputy chairman of the international press institute. he believes that israel's military targeted sri, what most people don't understand. israel does not recognize. they are seen professional journalists. there are journalists who work for international agencies like the or euro, but that's there are only given accreditation because they work for a 0. nobody working for a palestinian be even recognize we don't, there is read doesn't even issue press cards or accreditation. invalid student journalist is randy, don't even recognize them they, they deal with them like in the other being, every combatants of some kind. and so we have a real problem in that israel use the service. obviously one is a german for engineer and happens to be an american. you know, all a sudden you know that even the israeli narrative was changing at one time. if you know it's about there and then suddenly changed their narrative. busy realize this
3:23 pm
was just another german when i'm dealing with iran over the country that he's opposed to the us. we're dealing with a strong ally of the us. it continues to, i need to claim and they are going to investigate the need to investigate. they gave the orders, you know, a sniper who support right below. busy they have me and above the slang has to be a really good night. and snipers don't shoot somebody unless they get orders. somebody ordered this paper to kill this woman. palestinian woman turns out to be an american, but that's not the case. cases, they didn't want anybody to film because they were coming in early the morning. they wanted to do whatever they wanted to do in union, and then you weren't anybody to record that document. and that's why she was kim. they ran a human rights office, says that it's a pulled by sharina killing christmas. everybody has more l and the reaction from you and headquarters in new york, steve said yesterday,
3:24 pm
condemnations and calls for an investigation or to the death of al jazeera, serene ob lockley came quickly at the united nations from top un officials as well as member nations and the lead of arab states that we look at this as a one further step of this collision of situation that is happening by the israeli authorities and that started during the month of ramadan. so this is not only an attack when a person, oh, we're the but a senior or not, but it is not dec under freedom of the press and the freedom of opinion. the u. s. ambassador to the united nation is called her death, horrifying. she was very well respected. i actually had the opportunity to meet with her when i was in awe of westbank our last november and ah, she did an extraordinary interview and i laugh there filling extraordinary respect for her. so i know that she will be sadly miss by all of us,
3:25 pm
and we have to ensure that we get to the bottom of her, of her killing. linda thom has greenfield called on israel and the palestinian authority to conduct a joint investigation. an idea echoed by israel's ambassador, but refused by palestinians will reject the claims of israel that they can do a credible investigation. there are the criminals and the criminals cannot investigate themselves on the mission or the palestinian ambassador called for an independent international investigation and pointing out in a letter to the security council that 40 palestinian journalists have been killed since the year 2000 with no accountability. the arab league also called for action on the part of the security council and a resumption of the peace process. warning that if world powers don't focus on the region, confrontations and misery will continue. kristin salumi al jazeera, the united nations crystal is the director of the council for arab british
3:26 pm
understanding. he says it's always been difficult to hold his royal to account throughout all of these trustees that we have seen over the years and decades, that israel has been accused of whether it's in golf at the west bank and lebanon in the past. there's never really been that independent inquiry into their actions with the ability to hold those responsible to account course the united states is a main reason for this. but i think there's something else to play here and what we see. so often on those recent report brought out in canada about anti palestinian racism, racism against where body counts on on that the killings of arabs and palestinians that are just numbers. they're not stories that the humanized and they are deprived of the context, but not considered to be indigenous people with rights to self determination and so forth. and this is being recognized the world over at
3:27 pm
a broader level. it means that european powers, united states, that friends can get away with pretty much anything. the enemies are held to account and we see this, of course, over ukraine, where russia, in the case of russia, the icpc is brought into play. this can be an investigation. we see that western companies pulling out russia huge expressions of anger and concern. but none of this happens when it is for a friend or the west. and in this case, israel. so we could see, i hope, i really hope that we will see general genuine accounts, but a t for the killing of serene. but i fear that if things go as normal, what we will see is this will soon be forgotten, industrial scale effort to blur the story and cloud, the issue with alternative narratives. and we've already seen these already.
3:28 pm
narrative changing several times today will be perhaps successful. and there'll be some other story that will dominate the headlines in the days to come. we mustn't allow that happen. absolutely vital to international law means something. and it means something, all those palestinians, whose killings have also gone on to investigate them in our minds. your view is that so far this year, is there any forces of killed 10 palestinian children? now they're not getting any investigation system circumstances or they're killing. this has to stop on court on a palestinian activist in washington d. c. so that should be in our clear, was a hugely important figure for generation of palestinians. i grew up going to the friends girl school and mama and she once visited our school. i was around 7 when the father, the 2nd to father began and so her name and her voice, the tone of her voice in specific was when we would often emulate when we as kids
3:29 pm
would get together. most of our parents were around the clock watching tv when electricity was available. and so she didn't always just represented the truth, really stood. she did not quake, she acknowledged, when you know her human came into play and what she would feel and yet that did not deter her from returning again and again. and again. the areas she's covered in palestine are some of the most resistant, the lead, powerful, impactful regions of our country. and she returned time and time again, which is clearly why this was an intentional assassination. this is a targeted attack. that is what israel does. you don't have the leading in tech and weapon and surveillance industries, just accidentally fire. i'm using a sniper. that's not what they said their weapon expose. and so it was
3:30 pm
a premeditated attack. and it was a blow because they know that shooting, it's edged into an entire generation. she's etched into a collective memory. a witness to the sure thing described what he saw was lawn. but fudge, oh, wendy journalists arrived here. they were surprised because the occupation forces were closing the street with the military vehicle and then they started shooting at the journalists, shreed a black lafelle to the ground. also ali also moody and other journalist was injured here. the alley, but he was in a protected area. a man tried once again to retrieve the body of her will not a weird then up that she had been killed. he tried to provide the 1st aid to her manager, so they started shooting at him. and the bullets hit a tree over his head, and the guys here who are not rolling stones, no shooting a thought, there was no form of resistance shopper had a show as the journalist who was beside shabby and when she was shot dead. ya,
3:31 pm
near beth would either knock woolen. i left the lull. the occupation forces had led us to reach that point where they fired or not. i went to tell her that. i'm sorry, i couldn't protect you when we were under fire. i failed to save your remodels. gavera was long bowers who were speaking earlier today. the hello cool bit philistine new old palestinians were the family of sheranda. she was everywhere in palestine. unfortunately, she has left this life, but she showed what a great role model she was for new journalists. she is an i call and representing alger 0, and all journalists who lost their lives wearing depressed jacket home. but we must protect every just now and we wish her all the blessings of god. okay. and just leave it out with video of sri and which was recorded just before she died. and then has madame, i showed up and then moved to canyon anonymous at $1030.00 bell. i'm the one that
3:32 pm
over with the one with the help. okay. of who nobody but then with me. oh
3:33 pm
i ah, wherever you go in the world, one airline goes to make it for you. katara always going places to get the soldier for the days of dictated filipinos go to the cold as journalists prepare for light post. do terrible judgment they come in for america's abortion. like a sneak preview of the decision gets leaked to the press and china versus taiwan. geopolitical mismatch satirists are making the most i hello richard. yes, bird in europe. the listening post where we dig into the coverage and examine how news is reported. on monday, the philippines will elect
3:34 pm
a new president for the past 6 years. the country of 110000000 has been led by rodrigo. do territory. an authoritarian who has incited violence against journalists who dared to criticize his policies such as his so called war on drugs . and the thousands of filipinos killed as a result to tear k is not running the constitutional limits. presidents to one term in office. but monday's vote is partly a referendum on his legacy. it is also an appraisal of his idle ferdinand, marco's the dictator who ruled the archipelago for 2 decades until the mid 19 eighties. because the front runner is ferdinand marco's junior and to tear to his daughter is running for vice president. thanks to a social media strategy. the major's in disinformation marcos junior as a head in the pause leading many filipinos to fear what might be in store for their
3:35 pm
freedoms. starting with what remains of freedom of press. our starting point this week is the capital manila, the for any one on the outside looking at tracking the presidential election in the philippines. the question has to be, how has it come to? how has ferdinand marco's genius, the son of a different, who imposed martial law on filipinos? back in the 19 seventy's come to lead the pre election port. how have the marcos a family judged to a stolen between $5.00 and $10000000000.00 from the central bank regime considered to be one of the worst collect talk procedures in world history, made a political come back. how as marco's june, known by his nickname, bon bon, come to be the batting favorite, to succeed rodrigo, to tear place in the president's office in the same,
3:36 pm
pending grades of bumble marcus, the presidency, is clearly a result of his alliance with president the because president look there to have the machinery and social media. and also there this information that breaks we'd look there, there was already social media, but it wasn't us boxing as it is now. people just believing what they want to believe. the polls are selection of effective information, something that they had launched off 6 years ago and continue to activate, filled the efforts of this current administration to undermine credibility of g media. was fred ross, i think in the fall and we find a population more really to believe in bron in so some yeah. or in you to channels rather than what legacy. yeah. reports. what we
3:37 pm
saw on line. we're positive messages on that. we're rehabilitating the marcus brand . and why does it stand for strong men? leadership? it stands for marcus senior right now and i got go. i know it's a, it's on a yeah. mark was supposedly ushered in the golden age of the philippines when he was runing, as a dictator. and at the same time, negative campaigns discrediting the legacy of the peaceful revolution of 1986 that overturned the marcus, marcia law, an era. and how was this rebranding this rehabilitation of the marcus brand? how did it happen? it happened on social media in a world plagued by an online pandemic of disinformation analysts to study the
3:38 pm
spread of fake news called the philippines patient 0. it citizens are among the world's heaviest users of social me spending more than 4 hours a day. scrolling, reading or posting. it is the primary source of news for more than 70 percent of the population. and the platforms of choice can be littered with this information. facebook is popular with older filipinos, while tick tock, youtube, and the messaging app vibrate. are go to sources for those under the age of 40, who make up half of the electric. one survey indicates that a clear majority of voters $24.00 or younger. those too young to have lived under his father's support marcos gene. and that is the demographic most likely to be influenced by what it sees on social media. including attacks on marcus's liberal opponent, lenny rob, ready. there's
3:39 pm
a lot of misinformation being added by pro marcos produce. they are the accounts attacking them your bread build. some of these are blatant his info. some are more in, in the being of attack messaging or treating rubric a so weak leader and even very dark conspiracies. that ro, bread is the puppet of the u. s. government. right. so these are conspiracy theory narratives expressed in the form of names in the form of a, b, in the form of jokes in the circuit, 8 on line and get a lot of views. there's a study, more than half of filipinos rely on social media for their information and even we compete has been contaminated with all of the micro smith's mom my days. where regarding these fact checking independent organizations tried to correct all of these myths and fake news, but everything vicious sites, i believe that they come back as soon as they are doing that. more importantly,
3:40 pm
the large just need organization. yes, it has been shut down. so this is effect that the way that people appreciate information abs cb and occupied a dominant place in the filipino media landscape until it made an enemy of rodrigo . detecting in 2020 after the president repeatedly complained about the network's news coverage. the congress refused to renew its broadcast license effectively cancelling. it's free to our child. the government has also used lawful filing dubious legal charges against the new site and its editor maria restaurant, who's reporting and refusal to be silenced. one her a nobel keystrokes. the authorities have been going to route for ever since it exposed the tier to his war on drugs for what it really is a license to kill extra judicial. it all i'm up with or not being that like yet are
3:41 pm
one that i, there, olga, people who don't agree with with dancing for rodrigo detail silencing journalists and their news organizations is no big deal. he's advocated publicly for far worse . they both really don't know with marcos junior support to determine whose daughter is running to be his vice president. and should marcos when the election things look no better for a b, c, b, n, wrapper or journalism in the philippines. balboa microsoft has no intent of ever joining the franchise or the frequencies of yesterday. and yes, me pronounced message effect, that he will follow the policy over the administration. it is quite evident that he will continue with this policy and harassed independent organizations by filing data against them, and by not renewing their franchises. it is quite evident that while the mark was
3:42 pm

3:43 pm
have not impacted his popularity. in fact, his supporters like gifts. so it's a testament that it's working. so bumble margaret could follow up and we are actually going to, we're expecting journalists, we are expecting the word we are preparing for the worst ah, in the 1970 s. when ferdinand marco senior, imposed martial law on the philippines. he shut down the majority of new, though marco's junior makes no apologies for back. in fact, his campaign is using modern day digital tools of this information. to rewrite the history of that analog era, rodrigo d k. that's already turned back to the clock on press freedom and authoritarianism in the philippines. and if the poles are to be believed, there is more,
3:44 pm
in the form of marco's month to me, turning to the west, where the leak of a draft opinion from the supreme court has revealed that a woman's right to have abortion is now in jeopardy. starting with the leak and what we know about it here, small for us on may 2nd reporters for the news website politico josh gerstein and alexander ward published a leaked copy of the quote, draft majority opinion, which lays out the positions on abortion of each of the 9 justices on the u. s. supreme court, the draft document reject the 1973 ruling known as the roe vs wade case, which guarantees the right to abortion under federal law. and it could mean that each of the 50 states would be able to restrict or ban abortion that a full supreme court draft was linked to journalists is unprecedented. and as, as lit up the public and the press polling data shows that 80 percent of americans support the right to abortion. but there have been demonstrations on both sides of
3:45 pm
the issue. and mainstream media outlets have been reverting to type outlets like fox news coming at the story from the conservative side. it's a great day for the pro life movement across the country. those channels like m s, m, b, c, are on the other side of this debate warnings, but this means that the government's going to force women to give birth. now then there's a late night talk, show host, stephen colbert, a comedian who duck up video of the conservative justices at their confirmation hearings telling members of congress, one thing about rover's his weight. what they knew they want is a his roe vs wade is sir, an important president of the supreme court. roe vs wade clearly held that the constitution protected a woman's right to terminate a pregnancy. that's the law of the land. i accept a law of the land, it's settled as a president of the supreme court. they know that if they were honest, they wouldn't get the job. so they lied with the court judgement will not be made official for another couple of months. but because the leak came out,
3:46 pm
when it did this, abortion issue will be front and center and us politics until that day comes and beyond. thank slow. taiwan political situation is unique. beijing maintains that the island is chinese threatening to take it by force. were it to declare independence. conversely, taiwan constitution still ways claim to the entire chinese mainland territory that its leaders lost control of more than half a century ago. all of which has proven difficult for politicians to navigate and for journalists to cover. but for some taiwanese comedians, this conflict provides comedy, gold, or rich stream of material to ridicule or china. it's communist party, and the relationship between beijing and ty pay. the political satirists are popular with time when he is audiences, the youtube videos of comedy groups like i c t, v can generate millions of views. and satire has proven to be
3:47 pm
a useful tool to educate audiences about a geo political stalemate that many people, including tie when he's citizens lost interest in and checked out of a long time ago. listening posts, you had a who's now on the taiwanese political satirist making jokes that china's and sometimes taiwan expense on a total time william, who from the monotone delivery to the outfits and the flags on stage. it's exactly like watching a prick home friends from china, ministry of foreign affairs. except this one is produced and tie one like a media. for satirical show on youtube called i c t, the courthouse and even thousands. how? when we establish the channel, we wanted to use the less serious way to explore politics. and we imitate cctv chinese state tv channel, how they report the most popular segment is the press conference is held by china
3:48 pm
ministry of foreign affairs. i play the part of a chinese official play in renewing dole. uncle ma yes, you of our all the, of all the questions a very sincerely, for example, about china is internet restriction wanted, well, having managed the pandemic and that the irony, not only makes people realize that certain things, china sales are nonsense. it also makes them examine in question. it was quizzes dealt jack shit, child joy, young. i see tv reflects taiwanese people's dissatisfaction with china's involvement in taiwan over the past few years. i think this style is mockumentary news. we pretend to be an official state media news brought to the high school in the end of the year when you were. but in addition to comedy, i think tv actually provides a lot of news shelf. how many young taiwanese don't know much about china politics,
3:49 pm
even though it's significantly impacts tiwana. so the show can be at least some kind of information about the current political climate to young audiences. i see tv does not just take aim at chinese officials or china the communist party. some of it's that tell your targets politicians and politics closer to home. what it does in particular problems opposition party to quote min tongue or k m c. and the bizarre knew of the country's political status quo social. i don't have any friends that haven't deal with the nitrogen who's been seen, don't josh on those. you know, who don't hummingway agenda on the shoulder to do in the countries constitution, which was written more than 75 years ago. i want to still called the republic of china, which lays claim to chinese territory including the mainland. it's
3:50 pm
a legacy of the pre 949 era when the k m. t rule china before the civil war. seldom defeated by the communist party and forced into exile in taiwan for decades became t and communist party both claimed control over each other's territory. and argued that theirs was the only legitimate china. it's a strange reality like one that they ging, still asserts and remains reflected in taiwan constitutions. and it's at the heart of i c t, v. 's comedy, enjo john david highway. to fabian, don't i mean go without the treat home box? you shall, don't pump, don't wash this al, tindall twit housing you and seen joe, why cell? do you get da, gentleman see go, wait. we pretend to be the state media in taiwan, which aims to brainwash every wanting to believe in. ty, ones, republic of china is the only real china. we ridicule the political states as quote, most young taiwanese find the situation of bizarre,
3:51 pm
really funny to face. but there are older people from different generations who feel sad about it. i'd have other views on the republic of china. so vincent, i will say that before i ctp become really popular. a lot of the young people didn't know that in our constitution, we still try to claim back to the territory. it wasn't aware because people just don't talk about it. and now because the power of comedy people know is like, come on, came to you probably need to fix your constitution or we need to face history together. was huge. taiwan situation is just very severe. while our constitution claims that our territory covers the whole of china, every one knows that taiwan is being bullied by beijing and could never govern mainland china. the same goes for the other side. all the communist party has always claimed that taiwan is a part of the people's republic of china,
3:52 pm
which is equally ridiculous. it's all so stupid, but also very sad, cuz i see tv are very effective at losing sharp black humour to address the senatorial matters. it's a funny and satirical way of addressing the truth tall here. i see t v 's huge, you page has more than a 1000000 subscribers. and they are not the only comedians ratcheting up views, political satire with an irreverent take on ty, one's identity and constitution has struck a chord with young audiences. take, brian sang, who launched high ones for statistical to show in 2013. he used much of his air time to talk about his favorite topic, china. so it's all, if he doesn't get it, is the hosting hurley. then there are the new kids on the blog, postcards, toys like highly wang who uses her show to read chinese speaking audiences in taiwan and beyond the gel till we tried to reach all the mentors. speaking
3:53 pm
people around the world, i singapore believe not to mention like in china or practitioner, has a lot of chinese listeners who secretly support while we say they came really said the reason why we know. because of this, send us emails anonymously and tell us how lonely they are, cuz they can't really share what they will, i think in your own country. unlike china, taiwan has one of the freest media scenes in asia. it's been that way since the 1990s, after the country emerged from decades of cloning tongue dictatorship. but the information space is very polarized, and a significant share of news outlets are indirectly controlled by beijing. with an economy that greatly depends on china, taiwanese media organizations that criticize the communist party to face commercial pressures. platforms like youtube and spotify offer comedians a space to say and produce what they want,
3:54 pm
without having to take any of that into account. which has a fail fail. so youtube is a platform is very important to us using youtube and to a lesser degree. facebook means that we can criticize china without facing threats or commercial pressures. that's not to say that mainstream news outlets in taiwan don't take storms. some of them do address chinese propaganda and politics. there is pushback. all selling point is that we turn chinese propaganda into a joke to blunt the power of propaganda, washington, the lethal. say a sure how one, the julio may too much of the mainstream media that was resisting china's communist government has either been bought or disappeared long itself. if you want to establish a political satire program, like i see tv on a tv station, or you face funding and personnel issues. so these shows rely on youtube or 2 of them. but they still need to be careful because china is also infiltrating with
3:55 pm
this spacing. it's just another tactic of there's, there's a how many wild st should despite all the jokes, not oh, i see tv content is a laughing matter with stories like hong kong protest or the war in ukraine. the show takes a less comedic more journalistic approach with correspondence even flying out to report the situation from the ground. pretend search and it's about the balance between satire and solemnity. tillman. so we have one principle when we make the show, if we're going to talk about a sensitive story or one that involves a lot of casualties, we're going to approach it in a serious, more cautious way. for example, the war in ukraine, where we have sent a report of to cover it. i don't think our channel will become an official serious news channel. after all, our audience is watch us for fun and for satire. but we might, at some point, develop another channel that has a different mission for,
3:56 pm
for youngsters me. what's really interesting is that when tony's comedians to try to do comedy or political st tire, people would tend to think that, okay, you guys are anti china, but we're not a lot of people. they just haven't understood that yet. so we are child bass to reach more people to make them understand while we are doing, and we are just protecting our society in our country. and i'm sure that this is something that they will appreciate as well. oh wow. and finally, the climate change headlines. keep coming of new temperature high here, bio diversity lows there. and the un releasing a report calling global climate inaction. a horror story with much of the mainstream news media still failing to give this existential story the coverage it deserves. here are a few recommendations for climate updates that present the science possible courses of action in ways that are news, consumer friendly. raleigh williams is an american climate scientist and educator.
3:57 pm
it might be time for us to break up with our gas stove. williams runs climate town, a youtube channel that says it examines climate change in a way that doesn't make you want to take a finite till there are a bunch of climate focused labs that cover different aspects of this story. d small attempts to clear up what it calls the p r pollution that is clouding the science and solutions to climate change reporter. but i feel a sense journalists across the country to make the connections between environmental violations and major national and international brands. and then there's china dialogue, it's headquartered in london, but staffed with chinese specialists to work inside and outside china, covering the environmental challenges and initiatives. there, one podcast we've subscribed to, is how to save a planet. you can find it on spotify. and there's one thing people hunger for when
