4:05 am
welcome back here's a reminder of the top stories on al-jazeera at least twenty six people have been killed in a suicide car bomb attack at a gathering of taliban fighters and afghan security officials in the eastern city of non-dollar eisel says it carried out the attack the new u.n. envoy to yemen is expected to propose a deal to end the fighting over the port of call data the saudi led coalition launched an offensive to take the port for with the rebels earlier in the week and greece's government has survived a no confidence vote it was called over an agreement that athens is preparing to
4:06 am
recognize a new name for its northern neighbor in macedonia earlier police fired tear gas at opponents of the deal protesting outside. now at least eight people have been left injured after a taxi plowed into a crowd in russia the collision happened near red square in moscow where many world cup tourists were gathered all sources say the driver lost control of the vehicle and had not been drinking the driver of the taxi ran away from the scene before bystanders caught him in see those pictures there is good the details from marie chalons who is in law school at rory what else do we know. well barbara there are certainly some peculiarities to this incident which happened in moscow a few hours ago in the immediate off the mark of the news breaking that a car come plowing in some pedestrians in central moscow of course the assumption that lots of people jumped she was passed this was similar to the kind of attacks
4:07 am
that we've seen in many many cities throughout the world particularly in europe over the past couple of years or so but then the police to the authorities came out saying this looked like it was an accident that the driver had lost control how he was drunk that sort of thing but then after that we got this footage coming out which seems to show something that actually looks much more deliberate the driver or the taxi is stationary and traffic then suddenly pulls to the side steps on the accelerator mounts the car plows through a group of pedestrians walking away in the opposite direction now we don't know there are obviously ways in which you could come to a much more innocent conclusion than that but it does certainly raise questions and for the russian ortho or to you certainly they are in the middle of a very very high profile event they do not want any terrorist attacks to take place
4:08 am
here in russia while the world cup is going on and judging by previous form they have. so there are certainly been incidents before in russia where they have taken a very long time to admit that something was a deliberate attack rather than an accident or a disaster or that sort of thing so we shall have to wait and see what transpired with this case but certainly there are questions being offered them i would about what went on for a challenge with the latest on that from moscow roy thank you well staying in russia the president vladimir putin has been accused of using the world cup to wave through unpopular economic reforms as many russians were watching their national side beat saudi arabia the government announced controversial plans to raise their retirement age the proposal raises women's retirement age by eighty years to sixty three while men would retire at sixty five that's actually two years above average

life expectancy critics say any money saved has already been spent on hosting football's showpiece tournament and the match vivo an expert on russian affairs says she's un surprised the russian government chose to make the proposal at this time. it is all the trick of course you draw the bad news in the pool of good mood but having served a pension reform has been on the books for years and years we also see that it's going to be an incremental process this is quite to peer old within twelve to sixteen years with a timetable kind of delaying reform for each age group because the russian population is aging in other european countries now it is one point eight working person but each one the trends are point to continue russia retirement age is live dick low life expectancy in russia has been growing but it is

a considerable gender gap so it probably is unfair on men that they retire should retire later than women while there is almost eleven years gender gap between life at and see of women which is now nearly seventy eight in line with european average and male life expectancy. an international task force will investigate the political unrest in nicaragua which has left at least one hundred seventy people dead it comes as the government and civic groups agreed to halt all violence two months after demonstrations began against president daniel ortega however talks are still ongoing to address a call by catholic church mediators to allow early elections next year monahan has more. mediators from the catholic church were brought in to try and break the deadlock and there's been some progress nicaragua's government and opposition

a sign of desperation by president daniel ortega. in the more main the moment when he can no longer resort to the violence that he exerts through the police and paramilitary gangs when he can no longer resort to violence that will be his and on . at least one hundred seventy people have died since the protests began in april or take his efforts to introduce welfare cuts prompted the bloodiest confrontation since the civil war ended in one thousand nine hundred ninety. the plan was dropped but the protests continue under heavy security the two sides are still talking the opposition is also making concessions removing wrote books which the government said were damaging the economy but big questions remain the protesters want or take it to stand down a demand the government has likened to an attempted coup mediators urging early elections but so far there's been no response been to monaghan al-jazeera. colombians are heading to the polls on sunday to choose their next president in

4:21 am
try to diffuse the political crisis those are your headlines i'll have more news in half an hour coming up next it's the listening post thanks for watching. history. tell us whether you. really understood me the current share of autonomy two countries leaders and. donald trump and the time. hello i'm richard burton you're at the listening post here are some of the media stories we're covering this week donald trump diplomacy and the triumph of spectacle over substance india whatsapp and mob rule the
4:22 am
consequences turned deadly once again fixers and the news business they are names you will seldom hear but they are central to the coverage of all kinds of stories and the white house produces a propaganda video worthy of pyongyang and rolls it out for kim jong. il. in the television and internet age there's always an element of stagecraft to diplomacy and summit meetings the photo ops the soundbites the resulting communiques however two indelible. from two different summits could not have told more contrast and stories u.s. president donald trump defying vanna walking out on his allies at the g. seven summit in canada then getting down to business with north korean dictator kim jong un who trump described as talented journalists found themselves covering a president who once again seemed to put more thought into the spectacle and the
4:23 am
twitter feed he has at his disposal than actual political substance still even his critics have to hand it to him at least for the moment donald trump emerged with what he likes to call a deal that will denuclearize north korea the devil will be in the details the kind that cannot be conveyed in two hundred eighty characters or fewer and at this stage as they often are with this president the details are a bit sketchy our starting point this week is the site of the trump him summit singapore. imagine someone making a prediction just a few years ago that an american president would meet one day face to face with the leader of north korea. and that jury in that event one of the two sides would roll out a video that reeks of propaganda heavy handed and crumbs the new world can begin to day a video that speaks of a chance at a new day
4:24 am
a choice between the darkness and the light had you been told that that video would be produced not by pyongyang and be part of the. view but by washington for p.r. yeah would you have believed that people and injured many people found the video to be bizarre including members of the media both of these leaders are propaganda artists within their own right. the president you'll recall rode down an escalator . and launched his candidacy for president. in front of dozens of paid actors and they very much set the tone for how he sees the production of his presidency and kim jong un is not dissimilar certainly because he operates in a place where he controls the media and everything is controlled ultimately by the state featuring president donald trump who is
4:25 am
a movie trailer as all the press is calling it and it was in the context so over the top it was compared by some journalist to a promotional for real estate. in terms of donald trump's business career can history be changed the press apparently first thought it was a north korean propaganda film and yet it turned out it was produced in the united states by the trump ministry. of the back to back summits the g. seven meeting in canada and the subsequent bilateral in singapore the images that will endure are the still photograph. there was the symbolism contained in the trump kim hampshire and the potentially seismic shift that such an image convey. that came on the heels of a shot that appeared on the instagram account of the german chancellor angela merkel when the berlin would not have sent out likely it captures the unraveling of
4:26 am
the g. seven trade talks and the body language seems to say it all. even if you're not in trump land images matter a lot international politics but what we see with a merc whole picture is that it shows her appearing to stare down donald trump who is in his characteristic you know all arms crossed looking slightly petulant way and immediately critics of president trump say this is president trump isolated and so it feeds into that preexisting narrative for his supporters right it looks well this is how america should be with every other leader gathered around it so going to side american strength status and position in the dominance hierarchy the g seven the for going to there were four different points of view that we know the famous photo was the german for there was also a french official a japanese official full of american legion official four different points of view of the see me so that epitomizes the trade
4:27 am
a sense and then shake it is a handshake but it's an eagerness a handshake is better seen through the video than the photograph because. it was far more than a perfunctory or even normal range and the symbolic meaning of a thirteen second handshake in this visual form is the establishment of a physical and therefore a personal bond between the two so the first image is one of alienation opposition and even international condemnation of trub the second is trying to claiming that he hasn't made peace in the very first gesture of. the meeting of the u.s. president and the north korean leader was historic unprecedented there's no denying that but donald trump's declaration that the threat of a nuclear north korea had been eradicated is based on
4:28 am
a brief vaguely worded joint statement it commits the two sides to further talks but there is no timeline offered and not a word on verification which matters because this isn't the first time north korean leaders have agreed to stop their nuclear program they first did that more than twenty five years ago but each of those initiatives has fallen apart over the procedural details with verification often proving to be the sticking point the deal breaker donald trump the former reality t.v. star doesn't really do detail he does it and while the absence of details in the agreement has been reported upon wide it tends to get overshadowed by the imagery generator at the summit in singapore the media spectacle the trump is happy to provide. it's. reality t.v. it's like the society of the spectacle and he's very good at it which up we don't
4:29 am
know what's happening and that's what makes it a so opera and you as a journalist you should try to intersect you know cross reference the absolute craziness of your own. show is there any substance you know all this you want world politics to be boring you want the policy to be boring that means it's working well. but human beings are drawn to a standard story we grow up watching on television whether it's game of thrones or breaking bad or empire where their personalities their immediate relationships are driving everything that happens and trump clearly you know that's what he thrives on but also what the media thrives on because it's easy to tell those stories but this is not the first administration to gauge in negotiations with north korea president from his predecessors have tried to at least open up a dialogue some of them have walked away with similarly big issue and says of denuclearization so the question for the media as he put some of the spectacle
4:30 am
behind what will ultimately set this deal apart from anything that president terms predecessors had sought to achieve what is that verification process even going to look like. they are the kinds of questions the trump administration does not want to answer at this stage or camera so where does that leave the news media the reporters and pundits trying to make sense of it all in the realm of speculation presented as analysis i think you. want and that's the problem because analyzing a coherent policy is complicated enough analyzing a spectacle in the absence of a policy is a waste of air time and runs the risk of normalizing the abnormal. every instance of everybody who goes on these kinds of programs really is what they have to make sense of the president well i think the most reasonable assessment you can do to
4:31 am
score points by being able to give an insightful strategic rationale for the second wouldn't happen it was in the truck didn't happen under bush and i don't think any of that makes sense for trying these impulses or autocratic his decision making is he he got. cares more about short term spectacle then he seems to care about long term strategic planning trying to explain trump speak as if he were a normal president who did normal things which is what i've termed an academic ways analytic normalization. is the only normalizing he has his own rules inviting now if you're doing t.v. in you for a journalist covering politics you should know that it's not a question of normalizing first trying to understand that it's a piece of tension spends five seconds he's impulsive everything is walty everything can change in america meet in we have to do how to decode that and put him in a realistic perspective because we're dealing with a real on going experience but you have to make it real for our readers and you
4:32 am
know. we're discussing other media stories that are on our radar this week with one of our producers flo phillips flo vietnam has just passed a new cyber security law how will that affect what is already a difficult climate for free speech their internet censorship isn't new to vietnam and should of the past year that be multiple arrests with bloggers jailed over discussions of politics and viral mental issues among other things but this new cyber security law is yet another tool the government can potentially use to limit dissent the law forbids anyone online from organizing anything with an anti state purpose spreading false information or undermining the nation's achievements according to amnesty international the sweeping power as it grants the government to monitor online activity means there is now no safe place left in vietnam for
4:33 am
people to speak freely and the critics of this law are just talking about freedom of expression are there also talk about the economic implications why because another requirement of this law is its effect on global. phones and we're talking here about the major players google facebook twitter all of whom will now be required to store the personal data of their bit to me is uses locally so much like them having to open up servers in hong kong to store the data of the chinese uses tech companies now have to do the same vietnam for the estimated fifty five million bit emmy's who are on social media and that according to the asia internet coalition will stifle the growth of vietnam's digital economy the new cyber law takes effect on january first next year and in india there have been more cases of fear mongering over the messaging service what's leading to people actually getting killed what's the latest case as we've reported before richard india is what saps biggest market more than two hundred million users the spreading of false messages
4:34 am
and fake news is common and it spreads very very quickly making it difficult if not impossible for the or thirty's to debunk recently there's been a rash of child kidnapping stories and when two men asked for directions in a small village in the state of assam they were attacked beaten to death by a mob who reportedly believed they were indeed the kidnappers they've been warned about on whatsapp they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time envy is what's our proof is what specifically do they consist of what's actually being shared here people are citing messages that have been circulating about men disguising themselves as women to abduct children i remember one of the men killed did have long hair and then there have been various videos like this one that shows a child being kidnapped in it two men on a motorcycle pull up to a group of children one of them grabs a child and then they write off but the video isn't even real it may not even have
4:35 am
a originated from india now at least eighteen people have been arrested in connection with the two killings and local mobile internet services were suspended for a day to try and stem what's at messaging for a while ok thanks will. we're going to take a look now at the story behind the bylaws when a news article is published from a foreign country the byline tells us who wrote the television equivalent of that is the on air sign however few news organizations credit the fix the local hires secures that critical interview gets access to that all important location who helps navigate a story right with regional complexities fixers know the local news to rain and open doors few foreign correspondents ever count on their own they're also part security specialist part editorial consultant they fact check stories and they do all of that sometimes putting themselves at risk but seldom get the recognition they deserve those new posts will young now on fixers so often the on song uncredited story behind the story.
4:36 am
picks more often than not it's someone from the country who guides you who leads you to this story which turns out to be a hoax or an exclusive. one suspect. the person is going to be arrangements they'll gain access to interviews gain access to space the pixel are going to have to leave down that way to. his position because he or she is from this country and they don't whether or not the situation is it is their language and their culture their contacts without the experience you're not going to actually be able to tell the story. watching journalists reporting from the field if you're probably accustomed to seems like the. locals.
4:37 am
will finally be happy. by what you see all the people behind the scenes the cameraman produces drivers but especially the fixin's. for twenty five years. bill has been a fixer in the philippines helping journalists navigate everything from filipino culture to natural disasters and political events the most important the trade. no it's not an option so that means he'll have to exhaust. all possibilities to make something happen in a fix there should also be like. how much people will let you in their lives. how much these people are willing to share with you how much these people are willing to help you fix it i consider him as the eye of the inside. as we say in arabic the stranger is even he has.
4:38 am
is a trained nurse and paramedic he's also been helping journalists cover stories in gaza for nearly two decades each culture has had bits. and different attitudes and different behavior it's not a matter of a language only even a big journalist will come to the area and he's not aware of what's going on. he need a fix or. the word fixer can sometimes carry negative connotations and it lacks the prestige of a job title like reporter or correspondent so when a fixer dies on the job they sometimes receive a posthumous promotion like iraqi fixer bakhtiar dad who died in an explosion was covering attempts by iraqi forces to recapture the city of mosul from islamic state in death became a journalist. on the rare occasions when fixers do gain
4:39 am
a public profile it's usually when they're arrested kidnapped or killed according to a report published by the international federation of journalists twenty four syrian yemeni and iraqi so called media professionals were killed during two thousand and seventeen alone and in two thousand and fifteen in turkey vice reporters jake hammerhead and philip pendlebury would jailed by turkish authorities covering unrest in the predominantly kurdish city of. pendlebury and hanrahan were released in a matter of days but their fixer mohamed rasool spent more than four hundred months in a high security prison on trumped up charges of allegedly assisting the outlawed p.k. k. mosul dam is the front line that this murder took it back from their islamic state . when it comes to reporting complex conflict ridden news stories it's not just the fixers who find themselves in the front lines whenever any journalist camera man
4:40 am
local producer or other media worker loses their life in a hostile environment it serves to highlight just how much fixers are relied upon not only to open doors but also to be aware of what dangers might lurk behind them the fares they're mentioned. the security of the team who is coming from abroad it's to be one of his priority. that is sensitive and very important not only for the picks up but also for the crew that he's working with especially if there is a conflict because. with conflict your mistakes will be the first. and not only the life of the fix that will be under risk but also the life of the other usually you are foreigners so sometimes it's even the first time you actually visit the country they're going to have to tell you what you can face where where are the danger and. for example they understand the language so there's
4:41 am
a crowd in the crowd become aggressive. war or this tension in the air the picture will know when it's time to pull out their responsibilities have been varied but as budgets for international reporting a squeeze throughout the industry local journalists and fixes are increasingly picking up the slack and while recognition of their work is growing so too is the debate. as a research manager of the global reporting center. that focuses on the collected news stories around the world in two thousand and sixteen she coauthored a study which aimed to bring clarity to the grey area between the role of the conduct of the reporter i actually find that quite problematic and it's something that our research also showed because many of the fixers are actually local journalists they prefer to be called local journalists as well but then when foreign correspondent comes to a particular country then this local journalist assumes the role of the fixer the
4:42 am
fixer recognizes the different roles and components into putting a story together the journalist is often blind to this terminology i think it is an adequate word why because their job is to fix things. not really have a lot. of input when it comes to editorial issues unlike a producer the fixer will not come and say to you this is the way you're going to structure this story this is the way we have to interview this person and that person in order to balance the story we have to make sure that you know these two sides are represented there or they're given a voice in a certain report that is the job of a producer there is a very big difference between a picture and the producer a shared by line for the work that we do as. important allies and much appreciate but there are times when you operate on very delicate subject matter so. it is also good to have your name left out
4:43 am
since the fixer who made the initial in this the fixer left behind long after the foreign journalist has their own country. has really received the recognition they deserve for ruling on don't to bring to the story seems to be one of the few things things themselves cannot change. i'm really happy that this conversation is actually starting to take place i think that it's a conversation that has been taking place between fixers is a conversation that has been taking place with journalists as well but it's not a conversation that's been taking place between journalists and fixers nor between those who are producing the news and those who are consuming the news and this is a situation where somehow we think that this news is just magically appearing and if we can have a better understanding of how news is created we're going to have a better understanding of what news is many people just know the international
4:44 am
correspondent the news the byzantines you know but for. those who are working in the media then you know that behind this is. people who are debating making this easy for him god that. new article to make a good story and to make a good reputation for the job. and finally we touched on that video that the white house played at the summit in singapore but really didn't do it justice it was four minutes long and not remotely subtle it talked of two leaders one destiny and the light of prosperity pictures of trump and kim were intercut with footage of galloping white horses waterfalls and bullet trains it was one part propaganda one part movie trailer or the type of video a real estate developer shows his prospective clients but this could have been a case of trump knowing his audience remember the north korean leader's father kim jong il was a movie buff hated america but was
4:45 am
a fan of hollywood maybe it runs in the family trump says kim jong un watched it on an i pad and loved it will see you next time at the listening post. seven billion people that have a planet earth. of those alive today is small number of a lasting impact. and only the very few will make decisions or take actions that renew those their homeland and change the course of history and there comes a time when only a few are called upon to make a difference but the question is what difference will a few make just in the pictures presents a story of opportunity a story a new beginning one of these two. leaders one destiny. a story of a special moment in time when
4:46 am
