7:32 am
a nationwide strike led by ditching his groups, which is now it was 3rd week. soon human has more kito. well, despite the very cheerful atmosphere you see behind me, this strike is taking a very, very deep tone, not only on the strikers, but also on the economy of the country and on the political stability of this country at this hour, not far from where we are right now the, the legislature, the congress of this country is, are in the 2nd session, the 2nd day of a, of hearing arguments for, or against the know confidence voa for against the president. now, the president is certainly getting an ear full, but it does look like he will survive politically because they are not in a vote from the opposition to and see them at this point. so don has accused ethiopia of executing 7 suit new soldiers and a civilian spokesman for the armed forces claims if you, if you're executed the prisoners of war and put the bodies on public display tension between ethiopia and sudan has searched recent months. oh,

7:34 am
to their events. blo, i'm richard gilbert and you're at the las main post where we provide explanatory journalism about journalism and the global news media. it's now been 4 months more than $100.00 days since russia invaded ukraine. a war that looks like it could last for years. the propaganda around this conflict is also escalating. shifting in both tone and content in russia, independent journalism has all but disappeared. clearing the way for the kremlin narrative to go on. opposed, state controlled television channels and newspapers serve as the putin government's messengers. they've got the country on a war footing while maintaining the rhetorical illusion that russian forces aren't even in a war. just a special military operation. and they are mocking the parade of western leaders
7:35 am
making visits to the ukrainian capital. our starting point this week is keith ah, they keep rolling into keith, world leaders, hollywood celebrities lining up to meet with president viola demetre zalinski, signaling their support providing ammunition for the information. the leaders in italy, france, germany and romania visited the president of ukraine in april. but ukrainians are now more than 100 days into this. and the social ops cannot obscure the fact that russia controls 20 percent of their country is not at the factor of particular interest to russian news trends that have ridiculed zelinski all along and have recently altered their messaging refined for audiences at home and abroad. let
7:36 am
me know what is the lamps come on me and those kids to begin of the war was emboss. ukrainian politicians. it was about ukraine and president landscape, lots of jobs trying to, to make him looks to pet. all not really important. and now it's about won't lead us. it's about the countries. it's not only about great if it is again, they're making fun of microns lansky hugging. have yet to micro. now, because we've been given sort of some story though, he got double only they are saying also that johnson has a lot of problems inside of his own country. and he uses ukraine for his own purposes. speech. see me. he made me what are some of the know they're saying that there is no war in ukraine?
7:37 am
is the leaders of the big european country i visiting ukraine right now. it means that there has not been any war there going on. and this is the proof for the audience. so this propaganda channels that listen guys, this is special new to information. it's concentrated on the east of ukraine. and quite shockingly, russia is setting up information centers, which are really large tv screens on trucks that they roll into. even places is devastated as mary awful. and when you're in a queue in mario full of waiting for food, you will be shown such progress being told that you've been liberated against fascism. as you look around the devastated landscape of your cities. and then critically, they're really making the point that the economic degradation of the global system caused by the sanctions is really biting. louis,
7:38 am
which as of which i was living in transition with them, but challenging the west to say ok, you've supported ukraine, but the price of gas so high. do you really want to keep your, your generosity towards ukraine? what has not changed is russia's insistence that this is not a war. just a special military operation. it is a term that grows more absurd with every bomb that falls. every life that is lost. but rushes foreign minister was sticking to that story. in an interview, he recently gave the b, b, c. the kremlin seldom grants such interviews like this one was conducted in russia and said again, that seemed better prepared for the b, b, c. the b, b, c was for him. i cannot say that i love fully succeeded with that, but he was pretty close to guiding the interview because lovegrove was not me to answer actually any questions from the anchor that i gave you. fortunately,
7:39 am
instrumental which you section when they're gonna take us to the deal that i see, and that's why i think this interview was a kind of failure because when the anchor tries to stick to a neutral standard, he is predicting that respondent will answer this question and will play with the same rules of the game, was playing his own game, meals, keep it the way it was done. the love of interview was a masterful political piece. he knows how to work the interview. he doesn't accept any of the counter questions. he denies all the facts when you manage with the other. but then another almost, you know, great. he talks over any questions. he doesn't agree with the challenges the journalist back and notably, it was conducted in russian. and we can assume it was required to be conducted in russia, so it must be that it was intended to be aired in the russian audience. and of
7:40 am
course, you're asking, why would she speak with the b, b, c at all? i would tell you this is for russian propaganda channels, television channels and, and, and other media organizations connected with glen, to quote la roth and to show russians how strong and smart and authoritative he is. but he looked at the full debt of berlin, but felt i could sadness me thus update that because i would have got would have abused him if he didn't catch him. and they are there now laughing at the b. c. and not adoring, said, a gay lover of one of the main faces of this, of this terrible war with going back to the special military operation, the orwellian absurdity of that term. more and more cracks are starting to show on the russian air things. it remains technically illegal to call it
7:41 am
a war. yet news anchors are allowed to frame ukraine as part of a larger war on major or war on the west. it's mostly the the chill us sama, unless by a show i not which on why not that he, tim, have i am. and despite the orders from on high and all those obedient russian journalists, sometimes the truth just slips out. fleeting moments of accuracy in the kremlin controlled news, media accidental ones. it's interesting that it's saved through from time to time. talk shows refer to war correspondence being on the scene, which was an interesting usage. even maybe the brushing bathroom on it. we have a problem, asian, or for war, may have, may have slipped to use that term. so it slips out. but if you are an activist here, you used it purposefully, you would potentially suffer consequences. it's dawn, the candle wing, like everybody understands in russia let it's, it is
7:42 am
a was. so we are trying to, to say that was a to outside ups before is was and it gives, or than they people, it feel that they belong to something bigger. that trying to play, observe west, trying to deceive them and re ordinary russians who are part of his game, but makes us bigger. in russia, where freedom of expression is under siege. and people have good reason to fear speaking freely to journalists and even pollsters. it is impossible to accurately measure public opinion, but even russian opponents of the war in ukraine can see that most of their fellow citizens support it. as for the more complicated questions of why and how much the russian media have to do with that, those are things we may never really know. listen,
7:43 am
people wants to believe that this is a special military operation. people want to trust their government because if they don't, then they need to acknowledge that their country's killing civilians. right now. that's why millions of russians do not want to to understand the reality. and it's more comfortable for them to believe this propaganda to trust. this liars and to feel themselves as just viewers, not participant or russian people supporting the war because of the media, or they happily consuming the official line because they wish to receive it. ukraine, friends, even they have said that the russian state media is so harsh and ferocious that even they get dizzy over time when they listen to it and lose their bearing.
7:44 am
they think they're still alive. hope they're too wide, rush and public will start doubt. team. what is being delivered to them through official sources of information the number of russian soldiers coming back home that will be critical for when the russians will stop ceiling after effects of sanction. they might start thinking at some point that the real picture of the war in ukraine is different. from what is being broadcasted on tv channels. now you see it now you dumped an explosive news report as rippling across the world of british politics. it's the story of an illicit affair. corruption, scheming, and state censorship. mean oxy robbie is here with more anatomy, published by the times of london on june 18th deville, the british prime minister, bought his johnson, had tried to hire his now wife as his chief of staff. back in 2018 when he was for
7:45 am
the secretary and was having an extramarital affair with her, the job comes with a hefty salary. and it was only the strong disapproval of johnston's advisors that covered his plans. that article managed to make it to some print copies of the time, but then disappeared from later additions, and never made it to the papers website. 10 downing street has since admitted that it demanded the times pull the story. even though there was no denial of the allegation. and elements of the story had been published elsewhere before the times is offered no explanation for why it caved to the demands of the prime minister's office. and the people's leaders are not letting the school, the common sections across and numerous other political articles have been jammed by. johnson has been lurching from scandal to scandal. and british media outlets have broken numerous stories of prime ministerial parties during corporate lockdown, corruption in fighting, and the erosion of government services. johnson has survived, and the pushback from downing street against journalists has been aggressive from
7:46 am
not providing government representative for media questioning to ongoing pressure on news outlets like the b, b, c, and china for 2 incidents like this. the johnson government keeps going after the messengers. thanks mina. it took a while, but the me to movement has finally come to the forefront in greece. the threats faced by greek women from sexual harassment to domestic violence are making headlines, including the ultimate form of gender violence, genocide. the intentional killing of women simply because they are women. 38 have been killed over the past 18 months, most often at the hands of current or ex partners. greece is one of europe's most patriarchal societies ranking deadlines in the ease, gender equality index, and that is reflected in the country's news media. the listening posts flow, philips now on some aside in greece, and the sometimes detrimental role that journalism has played there in the way such crimes have been report 1st came the pictures of family and
7:47 am
monet. then came the words spoken by the widowed husband. awesome. oh wow, good. a funeral tribute from a young father to his murdered wife, as he held that baby. the baby's mother was a woman named caroline crouch. and as the story went, she was beaten and strangled to death in her athens. her by a gang of ruthless forest robbers. it was a crime story made for television, with elements of glamour and gold, almost to scripted to be believed. and the greek media feasted on it. it cannot be also let us that old legacy nicky, sir. jim. it satisfied all of greek society stereotypes. a beautiful family,
7:48 am
the bread winner, babe's handsome, successful pilot, and his wife, caroline, decided i made a statement that they did the valet when mamma soma, all they lived in a beautiful mesa, naturally where they were bringing up their beautiful baby daughter. that would be enough to fulfill all societal norms of what a family should look like. but then this perfect family is under attack by who, by armed for him, burglars a little bit. the greek media turned that material into juicy content and the viewers into collective mourners based on all. yep, that's been everything came crashing down. it took $37.00 days for the real story to come out. you know, see no harm in the revelation of crowds was in fact murdered by her own husband,
7:49 am
left the greeks wheeling and yet the mainstream media. they weren't ready to let go of that narrative show what after the coverage of the facts was problematic. there was a reported on sky tv, who after bobby had confessed to the manager, still referred to him as the alleged suspect, the federal person. but she stated that at least he didn't talk to roth. he was almost like he was keeping the suspect another by. instead of calling him out for these heinous crime of a time getting in. and that happened because bobby was a son in law that everyone in greek society wanted to have. it's just that he turned out to be a murderer. the more conservative wing of the greek media, we're eager to justify his action, sufficient or line. doesn't have any kids or call him or,
7:50 am
or to them to support us from your med that got you that decided to bobby suddenly telephone line was picked up for a way to dynamic and vocal avoid 50 percent based upon lower according to a tv high quality bobby was the one who had the ideal online profile that would get him many follow the lips hollow harsh, the 309 gender determines how the media research and report on a story. and it ends up being entirely confusing. it feels like mainstream media here often focus more on the woman. forgetting the actual criminal victim was pretty. she was a kind person, a young mother, greek television usually chooses to stick to journalist cliches. amanda. and by choosing not to refer to these killings as on the sides, we end up with coverage that murderers victim for a 2nd time he has to go got all the family of the state of florida. to me is
7:51 am
a little more the impact of family side goes beyond the loss of life. these are crimes, they tap into a collective fear. so how the media treat them really matters. unfortunately for many years now, the greek media heaven help to bring about to 0 tolerance culture agenda, violence just the opposite. we're going to like sound bites for the sympathetic to the murderer, coming from the police department with staff roles for last gas was a senior officer on the caroline crouch case. and if it available, we have like a bite came to be known as the last gas doctrine. advice delivered on camera, on how to escape true justice. a life sentence if you murder your wife, just call the police and confess right away. there was no follow up from the journalist. no push back. was it any coincidence then that in the weeks after more
7:52 am
men came forward confessing to killing that partners that don't call mom me for hours to not be up to here is yet another example of us journalist being caught by surprise. we weren't aware of the incredible social impact the statement would have and we should have emphasized how important it was to address it. the journalist never questioned the states or even triggered a dialogue around me as necessarily along the murder of caroline crowd should not be seen in isolation. feminist groups estimate that over the past 10 years, gender base violence has tripled in greece. and currently, at least one woman dies at the high of a man. every months. like got a failure. sadako pushed off the for lake on the doors, cliffs by her boyfriend, neck tardy. i'm not akees stab 16 times by her estranged husband or daughters
7:53 am
a hearty air gun down by have former partner on the island of russell's but tune in to any of greece's many popular tv shows. and you'd be left guessing as to who the real victims are. submitted to the city. so though in the case of thora, the suspect to uncle got a lot of air time to enhance the keyless profile. i wish i could assist me fairly well. he could hear me. i guess if you could get me, i guess, i guess was, have brought another i got wanted to see the greek media reflect the gender inequality that exist in society at large. and they always emphasize the fact that the suspect has never been in trouble with the authorities kept us. holy shit, said he, is he our lip? we are for the uncle was publicly expressing the other side of the story. he came on my saw and blamed the woman saying that her morals were questionable except the speaker. yes, he now mild thought because you know, it's
7:54 am
a relief for those of us who present so's lake mine to be able to. so viewers both sides of the argument. you know, mother, how difficult at these for us as journalists now because it coin always has to side of the accused, yet leaves his own true full of rest. oh, sina could saline, it doesn't mince her words. she's a host for star channel, and one of the country's most famous faces for more than 3 decades. she's been part of the great media establishment in a country where entrenched patriarchal views have been slow to change or thought all. or i believe that if all women unite and support deter their men will follow to some extent. but we're to, for the current situation. when i present some aside my so do you know what they observed? i observed that if the blaze blaze from the woman women stop working well, men,
7:55 am
women don't have the strength of character phase. they're very important to be able to look yourself in the eye and tell yourself it's your fault that you are putting up with your husband. let's not blame everything on the paper. but that has been a lot like that. when we talk about history or sexism or toxic masculinity, grief, there's always a strange reaction. sometimes a factor. some women get abused for bringing these issues up, and they're never mentioned, go greek television. i actually don't think i've heard the word patriarchy used to greek tv year. as it happens, the word patriarchy comes from good, patsy. i hear it means rule of the father. and covering women the violence they suffer, remains
7:56 am
a challenge for greek news organizations with that culture of male dominance to this day. and finally at julian assange is one step closer to an american prison. the u. k. government has agreed to extradite the wiki leaks co founder. he faces a sentence of up to 175 years. julian assange is guilty of exposing american secrets, including war crimes in afghanistan and iraq through classified documents that wiki leaks published and then provided to news outlets around the world. a sanchez backers have always maintained that this case is bigger than him. in that it sets a menacing precedent for journalism that is in the public interest. and the assange case gives repressive regimes around the world. the tailor made talking point to use against their critics, including the us. because if the americans jail assange for his work, why can't other political actors do the same to their journalists,
7:57 am
relieving you now with a few examples of how those regimes play the assange card whenever it suits them. and we'll see you next time. here with the listener. oh, i see. i stood as a savage am. if don't let roast niecy will you hewett? yeah. i love ships. yeah. i stood as you want. i got niemen anymore. so crabby, savannah mutual. i each skipper swarthy. sushi, stop by me. it up, but it daniels them when you rob the saw what he put off not as presented. union promise. ah. you know, they will excuse me. see that armina is will not have free media. let's talk about how many years. sorry. how many years he spent in ecuador, an embassy, and what,
7:58 am
and where does he know what journalist exhibit you'd keep, that person was actually killing him? morally, physically muted is not. and now he is in prison. ah, she actually need a human. so your, your photo, she with some sand and so a wise postcard image hides a piece of battle of the past and future of these island parents. when i, when i meet the locals, determined to keep for why, for why on al jazeera al jazeera correspondence bring you the latest developments
7:59 am
on the war in ukraine. we had to take cover. this is of happening on a daily basis. the medics here say he is incredibly lucky. those coming out across the lines of no man's land where one of the few to gain access to this embattled town. they take us to their basement where we find others sheltering from the shelling these evacuation. now, by so 3 days journey devastated buildings are now a grim reminder that the russians were here with a getting a gun, eating dining ideals, the french republic, islam proclaimed. but just what is modern? france in a 4 part series. the big picture takes an in depth look. the trouble with france episode won on al jazeera in just under
8:00 am
a year's time kettles al bait stadium will house. the opening match of the 2022 world cup. the official opening of the stadium came on day one of the arab cup, but many fans were already counting down to the big kickoff. next, november c, u r. o a 1020 door as this tournament unfolds over the coming days. it will play a key role, but organize is getting ready to host the middle east's biggest ever sporting event next year. and for the cats are national teams. they get used to playing in fronts of expects and home crowds. bobby hoping to convince both the fans and themselves, so they really are ready to take on the world. ah, russia steps up as a tie con ukraine is g. 7 lead is made in germany call for you.
