5:22 pm
with more than a little help from their friends in the news business and the challenges and dangers that come with trying to cover political unrest in the democratic republic of the congo as elections approach in pakistan and certain news outlets are coming under pressure and it looks like it's from the military. and musical lament from iran for a social media platform the government has taken down. one turkish president red chip type delivered his reelection victory speech last week he spoke of one nation one flag one state he could have taken that a bit further and talked about one media and one voice his own because that's the way the campaign was covered the main state owned t.v. channel t r t acted as if it were state run for every minute of coverage it gave to one's main rival it gave the president ten and privately owned broadcasters were much better since coming to power in two thousand and three air to one has overseen
5:23 pm
a restructuring of turkey's media space media conglomerates that failed to support air to watch have been sold off to allies who will hundreds of journalists have been jailed. it's more media outlets have been shut down it used of terrorism a lot was riding on this election and as the victor heir to want to set to take up sweeping new powers that he says will help him put turkey's economy back on track its critics however say he now has kind of blown to further silence dissent or starting point this week is the capital on for. some time selections coverage can be difficult to assess when is coverage of a campaigning politician and fair coverage. so that what constitutes critical or forming data is easier to deal with doing the math the way opposition members were looking for turkey's broadcast regulator who took.
5:24 pm
according to them in the months prior to the election t.r.t. turkey's main state owned t.v. station devoted sixty seven hours of air time to president air two one while his main rival. got less than seven hours. we had the very symmetrical situation which means dominant government media up to ninety ninety three percent of the entire media sector was the hind end on a nice uk party. should. have gone turkish easy out if it was going to type. six says that. democrats saw fit to sit by t.r.t. being a state broadcaster issued day after day on propaganda of the beast if you're the
5:25 pm
president of a country not only a campaign you also running the country also holding meetings you're also talking to people you also. having a high level diplomats come in taught your presidents from other countries no one taught you so you are more in the news anyway hanuman's it was not much in the news before he became a candidate president aired on what's you know be done cornish that you have made us. look like not made on the george. i want you to hear them as young as a q some of the cult everybody loves shoe just put the blame on the media because in just set. the media has failed ok. it's show that also this is not news it didn't start with his candidacy it was like that for a long time and maybe opposition leaders should also ask them selves how did we get here. the process has been gradual the pattern unmistakable
5:26 pm
over the years to the one and his party have made headlines by arresting dozens of journalists and shutting down scores of news outlets an approach that hit its peak after the failed coup of two thousand and sixteen other developments such as the gradual transformation of the turkish media landscape through ownership changes have been less dramatic but just as consequential media companies deemed hostile by erda one have ended up selling their holdings to the government supporters the dolan group is just the latest example of that once the biggest media conglomerate in the country though one has been cut down to size over the years culminating in the sale of newspapers who the at and pasta and t.v. outlets can now day and c.n.n. turk just three months before the election between the arrests the shutdowns and the changes in ownership critical voices in turkey have fallen if not silent then
5:27 pm
by the way so. the purchase of the media group to fiercely pro-government in the family should be seen as a political move on media group was giving a lot of space to diversity of opinion somewhat large public discourse of different voices etc when its was gone to the other family turkish media seizure to my mind was complete this was a very very dramatic there was no more influential independent and free media left. i think don. media was a useful thing window and media was owned by i didn't do and by previous i know that there was military pressure behind it and we've seen how newspapers control go support by filling its off but pressure is gone and they fail hasn't come as
5:28 pm
a result of government pressure on the country i feel it's more the process of reestablishing a balance in the media space. more than a quarter of. media outlets feeling the heat in turkey would like to blame their problems on the government but they bear some responsibility themselves the president heir to one was still prime minister when his government started cracking down on kurdish media outlets a decade ago by two thousand and nine the go one group fell afoul of the one and suddenly found itself with a two point five billion dollar fine for back taxes when media group was being targeted large. turkish media sort of enjoyed this battle when the kurdish newspapers were closed down the other segments of the turkish media kept silent when someone group which is affiliated with good on the moment was brought down at the other is felt the same way this is what i call
5:29 pm
a sickness off the turkish journalist corps and it continues today to german. other journalists they thought oh ok it's time for them to go down this really failed to come together on the principle of press freedom and i think it had an effect on all of this don went down for financial reasons the money went down because it's a mouthpiece for the goodness cults i don't think any media outlets have been closed down for speaking out against speaking out against it being closed down because their means of terrorist propaganda whether it be. whether they're given this cult movement or any other. terrorist activities and. the larger question about president aired one one that goes beyond the way his treatment of the media is perceived is do most turks even care for all the criticism from abroad from n.g.o.s the european union and others he did take fifty
5:30 pm
two percent of the presidential vote whether the debate over aired one in the media even registers with turkish voters for millions of them even tens of millions it doesn't seem to not. some terms for the large majority such as freedom rights these are too abstract particularly middle and lower middle classes of turkey much more focused on the quality the pocket that's why freedom of media freedom of expression all of these issues are left only for us for journalists for the intellectuals and that's why we are suffering as a has created a strong belief that he is a strong leader that he is able. to lead to country and i believe this still has an effect on people his supporters believe maybe he alter it
5:31 pm
but who cares we are better out with it. is the turkish voting public really that indifferent to freedom of the press as the election results would seem to suggest or was tied care to one's victory just a natural byproduct of the dominant news narrative in turkey all the airtime the media give to the president at the expense of his opponents all the favorable coverage he gets from journalists many of whom now work conditions of feel that too is difficult to assess and if they are to one keeps having his way we will never really know. we're discussing other media stories that are on our radar this week with one of our producers will yong will starting in the us with the national security agency the n.s.a. became big news about five years ago over its surveillance programs now we've
5:32 pm
learned a little bit more about the physical infrastructure that enables the agency to spy on citizens and not just americans first of all where the story come from well the details come courtesy of an investigation by the news website the into set it published a report on how the n.s.a. works closely with one of the world's biggest telecoms companies eighty n.c. to tap into people's internet communications and the report identifies eight heavily secured eighteen t. buildings in major u.s. cities which function as hubs for an n.s.a. surveillance operation code named fairview fairview gives the n.s.a. direct access to rule dates of passing through the facilities which includes e-mails browsing data and other online activity and remember it was n.s.a. whistleblower edward snowden who revealed most of what we know about the agency's operations back in two thousand and thirteen snowden called the intercept report the most important surveillance story you will see for years and it's not just a t.n.t. as customers in the u.s.
5:33 pm
affected by this is it far from it according to the report eighteen c. processing centers also allow the n.s.a. access to traffic from eighteen t.'s partner companies who use their infrastructure for efficiency reasons including overseas palm such as door to telecom india's tata communications and telecom italia a spokesperson for the n.s.a. told the intercept it could neither confirm nor deny its role in alleged classified intelligence activities moving out of pakistan now and a news outlet that suddenly developed distribution problems shortly after publishing criticism of one of the country's most powerful institutions the military what's the story there it concerns dawn newspaper which is pakistan's oldest newspaper dohrn play. pakistan's military for blocking distribution confiscating copies of the paper and even threatening their vendors for the past month especially in military cantonment areas where the army has direct control over most aspects of daily life and we also know that many cable t.v.
