4:02 am
here the arc de triomphe just behind me which has become something of a symbol of this yellow vests movement and police are at the moment firing tear gas they're trying to move people away from this area dispersed the crowd so if you look behind me you can see the police there there are eighty thousand police deployed across the country security has been boosted as the government tries to crack down on what they say are some or the most violent elements in the protests so far they have been peaceful most of the protesters are of course peaceful and that's why the police are here to try and control and manage the situation but it has been very difficult for them over the past few months to think these photos have been very unpredictable now the government response has been politically to try and offer protesters more concessions more financial concessions they're launching a big national citizens dictate to get people move of course in politics next week but people here say that's not enough what they want are more taxes to be scrapped

4:21 am
the arc de triomphe as well as that original demands for tax reductions the protesters on now calling for constitutional reforms. all of our top stories there will be more news later on in about twenty five minutes time after the listening post which is next. a veteran n.b.c. news analyst has quit the network after three decades with the strike action on his media obsessed archive our thoughts now is to cover that up for auction it's like taking the bait i believe distractions served up on twitter as the mainstream media failed its mission. hello i'm richard gere's bird and you're at the listening post
4:22 am
here are some of the stories we're covering this week news alert for the u.s. media being tough on trump can lead to being pro military think about it there's an election coming up in nigeria and the raid on a newspaper there is probably no coincidence conspiracy theories they're everywhere and journalists aren't really sure how to deal with them plus president el-sisi and the interview his government did not want to see on the air they say you are a military dictator the one the egyptian media pretended did not happen as parting shots go it was a good one it made news when william arkin a veteran national security reporter with n.b.c. news and m s n b c wrote his resignation email last week he shared it with his colleagues it was then leaked to other news outlets among arkansas criticisms of his former employer and other mainstream news outlets in the us that by incessantly covering the presidency of donald trump the network is being held hostage by trump
4:23 am
that in its reflexive li anti trump coverage it has become even more pro-military that n.b.c. and m s n b c are now captives of the security state back in his days with the washington post arkin worked on an investigation called top secret america on the rapid growth of the u.s. intelligence industry post nine eleven so his critique of the establishment media is worth listening to he knows the subject matter. however american news consumers are tuning into m.s. n.b.c. and its anti trump agenda in record numbers armed with those kinds of ratings what corporate owned news channel would risk alienating its shareholders by changing tack our starting point this week n.b.c.'s headquarters in new york city. william arkin in his resignation e-mail to his employer on the perils of trump.
4:24 am
the impulse to oppose any and all of the president's policies regardless of their merit. of course he is an ignorant and incompetent and pasta and yet alarmed at how quick and b.c. is to mechanically argue the contrary to be in favor of policies that just spell more conflict and more war really we shouldn't get out of syria and by the way we're knocking the hell out of isis will become another syria like very soon so to recap for everybody panag on not happening. we shouldn't go for the bold move of denuclearizing the korean peninsula why did that happen what was that for no us president has ever agreed to meet with a north korean dictator before and even russia who really yearn for the cold war in almost everything we see here touch and feel and smell it's russia and don't even get me started with the f.b.i.
4:25 am
what we now lionized this historically destructive institution. everything just so there's no conversation about whether or not these are actually positions that have merit there is no conversation about whether or not we should have even gone into syria when they're not even legal we don't see the actual coverage of what's happening except for to condemn the president for not wanting to be there he has earned ninety eight percent or. your ire ok don't ruin it by actually being reflexive way against the two percent that make sense we should definitely get out of syria we should one hundred percent get out of afghanistan but it's irrelevant what i think i know the huge percentage of the right wing and a huge percentage of the left wing who want to withdraw from those wars so are any of them represented in the media and the answer is no because the media is decided we're going to put up a wall if you will of fear and loathing donald trump everything about this critique
4:26 am
with regard to the mainstream media's treatment from is false the idea that they are anti trump well no they're in the business of telling the truth and trump is in the business of lies in the past month alone according to the washington post he has told an average of fifteen lies a day to be anti trump is to be pro truth so i don't give any of arkan's critique those particular issues and it creates looks like. some aspects of this story are unique to the trump era but not all american and coalition forces whether it's the bush administration invading iraq in two thousand and three we will hunt down terror ordering the bombing of eisel in syria in two thousand and fourteen or donald trump conducting air strikes against syrian government targets in two thousand and seventeen the coverage is one sided and the voices reflect that why didn't we take out all of his military capability and like all three us twenty four
4:27 am
hour news channels m s n b c hires ex-military and intelligence figures many of them now employed by the defense and security industries the networks call them analysts which is misleading because many of them are advocates according to william arkin the preponderance of those voices and how much airtime they are given on stories such as trump's recent decision to pull out of the syrian conflict are evidence that u.s. news networks have become captives out. of the security state so when i started as a commentator on m.s.n. b.c. and n.b.c. in one nine hundred ninety nine there were others who were from the academic world there were others who were activists now all we hear are retired generals and admirals and high level government officials all of you have so many credentials we don't really know where to start but let's talk start with the general things that only one of us who has four stars. and all we hear is a kind of partisan analysis of how bad trump is because he's breaking with past
4:28 am
administration policy or whatever the american public suffers it's amazing to look at how many former national security state officials are on television i mean you'd expect maybe and it's a tele tarion society to have former intelligence officials being your experts were supposed to be democratic and i can't think of people less qualified to opine on politics and to represent the interests of average people then those officials who have spent their careers warmongering and running secret programs michael first of all what were the u.s. media's addiction to ex-military and intelligence forces is well documented a two thousand and eight investigation by the new york times exposed how at the outset of the wars in iraq and afghanistan there was a virtual conveyor belt running between the pentagon and network television studio
4:29 am
the times won a pulitzer prize for that piece of journalism what changed there after was nothing like the conflicts kept coming i'm guided by the beauty of our weapons so do the x. generals and the pentagon labels message force multipliers. love a good goodbye note and and as william arkin pointed out in an interview on c.n.n. the us media somehow managed to accommodate all those pro-war voices without even know. where some of the conflicts are taking place. when i think about how we cover the news i think about are we at war or are we not at war and even if we're in this so-called perpetual war or the long war as the pentagon calls it i want to know that it's being covered with the aggressiveness that's necessary right now brian we are bombing nine countries around the world and i defy you to even name what they are that's how can i add to our coverage of warfare is beyond us with you i cannot
4:30 am
if there is and he's not a military expert he's a news media critic but i wanted to make the point and in fact it's been interesting even my colleagues have said one of those nine countries is again show me any mainstream media outlet that is anti war and what it would be this out of here without pre-war either. the corporate media is massively pro-war so when you combine those two forces being against pro-war when he announces withdraw they hate it and they fight him with a passion that you haven't seen him a long time there are times when that just distain for him gets in the way of producing really good news really good commentary and we have seen that with the line is not just math is i think jim mattis is departure was different from a lot of the other previous departures we've seen because he is so highly regarded but when connie was leaving the f.b.i. we've seen this kind of happen after everyone leaves that there's this moment where
4:31 am
it's like oh oh they're so great because they've left but it doesn't really look at how these people have contributed to everything that we're saying is a problem with trump. m.s.n. b.c. which declined to answer our questions can live with the criticism and just point to the ratings they show a clear appetite for and to trump t.v. viewers clearly don't mind the pro-war bias and happily tape. in political talking points from former trump officials who have left the administration iraq last month for the first time in seventeen years m s n b c one the ratings war with fox attracting more viewers in the key demographic that advertisers want. to see has done well in the ratings and the traveler but i think part of that is a reflection of the fact that whenever you have a democratic president. sort of focus on official opposition network like fox news will do better in this case the beneficiary of this dynamic is in the sea because
4:32 am
you have trump and power most cable news is crap and allows a lot of crap on amazon to say there's less crap on m s n b c than there is on c.n.n. and far less than there is on fox i don't understand why unless n.b.c. is a problem they see themselves as the voice of the resistance but the idea that this is the problem rather than fox is the problem or c.n.n. is the problem it's it's insane. or it's possible that fox news is not the only problematic news network on the american airwaves and that's not drawing a false equivalence equating m s n b c's locational blindspots with fox's constant crimes against journalism it's just stating the facts the points that william arkin made on his way out the door. we're looking at other media stories that are on our radar this week with one of our producers joanna who's joe egypt's president. sits down for an interview with sixty minutes in the u.s.
4:33 am
last week and then tries to stop that interview from going on the air why even agree to do it in the first place you had to know what was coming but as one of the show's producers said later it's almost as if c.c. was unfamiliar with the program and just wanted to appear on it because a number of other arab leaders have done the same c.b.s. host scott pelley asked some pretty direct questions about the president's record on human rights the kinds of questions never has to face from egyptian journalists . mr president the organization human rights watch says that there are sixty thousand political prisoners that you're holding today as we said here a c c clearly thought the interview had gone badly according to that same producer on the shoot by the time she got home from the interview there was an e-mail from her contact that the egyptian embassy formally requesting that the interview not be aired now holding back that interview or burying it is not something that c.b.s. news could even consider but the president has had more success in controlling the media output back home on this has been much more according to one of the few
4:34 am
independent outlets still operating in egypt not a mussar in the president's office instructed domestic media not to cover the sixty minutes interview in any way and the media blackout looks absolute instead there's been a lot of focus on the inauguration of a new coptic cathedral just outside cairo it's like the sixty minutes interview never happens let's move on to nigeria now last week the military raided several offices of the daily trust one of the biggest papers in the country arresting a couple of journalists seizing equipment why this paper and why now well richard the nigerian military post a statement on facebook saying that all this was in response to a cover story published by the daily trust on january sixth which detailed a military operation planned against the armed group boko haram and the article supposedly and i quote divulge classified military information now by undermining national security employees at the paper say the officers came looking for reporter hans idris who wrote the story but when they couldn't find him they arrested two
4:35 am
other journalists instead and now if these raids and arrests come after a series of setbacks in the government's war with iran and with just over a month before a scheduled national election this might be just another attempt to stifle critical reporting of the ninja erin military and its political masters ok thanks joe have you heard the conspiracy theory about al-jazeera being a secret tool of the israeli government probably not since i just made it up and put it out there. conspiracy theories are a growth industry they can affect politics last year one such theory may have helped reelect varian president viktor orban another lead to a mass shooting in an american synagogue and donald trump pedaled a few with them on his way to the white house the thing about conspiracy theories is that journalists don't really know how to cope with them debunking them fails to convince those who believe that the media are lying to them and the exposure that comes with countering them introduces people to conspiracies they've never heard of before so are the social media giants doing anything about the problem not in ways
4:36 am
that would hurt their bottom line online architectures algorithms help keep conspiracy communities in gauged and outraged the listening posts will young now on conspiracy theories the media and the consequences they can have in the real world . a whole. lot novel idea from bad uncle george george soros hasn't visited hungary. prime minister viktor orban make the hungarian finance iran fun to paste a central part of his reelection campaign last march. off of him gary and believe soros is behind the plot to bring large numbers of migrants into the country
4:37 am
a conspiracy theory that the gary in government has been propagating. george soros is a useful character because it taps into this preexisting fire right now about jewish control and throughout the years we've seen this anti semitism turn into documented conspiracy theories the sort of thinking is obviously extremely useful to populist politicians who want to position themselves as someone who. a defender of the people against outside shadowy forces who wish to weaken their nation. but we want populist politicians such as trump you think somebody. i would be surprised would be i would i don't know but i would be surprised a lot of people say you know. the theory that soros was funding an orchestrated the migrant caravan travelling from honduras to the us border had reached millions on social media
4:38 am
a series of twelve suspicious packages sent to critics one turned up. by the time the first of a dozen targeting think it's on the street. sources. days later was allegedly shot eleven people dead. tree of life. several posts about the migrant caravan on facebook. on the united states jewish. conspiracy theory a time in sorest to the caravan started in some private facebook groups and in other chat forums then eventually people started tweeting about it lou dobbs starting to sort of make associations to it a lot of these folks also have affiliates who are getting money from the. state department and then from there really jumps into the mainstream there was a video shot in guatemala we don't really know what it shows in someone
4:39 am
distributing some kind of paper maybe take it maybe money out of money change but this video was seized evidence that some larger group was funding and in fact erecting the caravan this is completely baseless conspiracy theory but became so popular that even a congressman was promoting it of course one of the exciting promises of social media is that the. there is no more media gatekeepers but it's also very useful if you're a conspiracy theorist and you think that the mainstream media is not going to tell the story that you think people should should hear. ideas that jews freemasons. this is people. secretly running world affairs have been around for centuries. about conspiracy theories today. and sproat. take the breakout hit of conspiracy theorizing in trump's america q and on the
4:40 am
conspiracy of political intrigue game if the case should real time news analysis and crowdsourcing. the story by those who believe the theory to be of government working close to donald trump and bring down the state. of this message forums for believers to interpret. what's interesting about q. and on the answer of general modern conspiracy theorizing is that it's not a passive experience for a lot of people who believe that q. will release a puzzle or a cryptic message in the queue drunk and then people in the cuban community will spend a lot of time and energy and effort in attempt to decode it as very it's very game a fight is very fun but the problem is that they they don't actually really think it's a game they think that they're actually genuinely uncovering some sort of secret from deep inside the government key to the growth of these serious is them not just
4:41 am
living on places like fortune or read it but them making the leap to the more widely used social media platform. and a lot of other things leavers create these sort of quasi i news reports on you tube to respond and nearly real time to events to say ok this is happened in the news today again. this is all these timing. here's how this. off to fit into the queue and on theory into the sort of larger conspiracy that explains if you watch a conspiracy video it recommends another conspiracy video and those conspiracy videos are often telling you don't listen to the mainstream news stay on you tube and watch more you tube videos where people reinforce these messages that most of the outside world says are ridiculous you can buy into whatever conspiracy theory you want people can create a filter bubble that's completely their own where outside perspectives start to feel galleon to them but apart from the platforms there's another bug in the media
4:42 am
ecosystem that can enable conspiracy theories and that it's journalists themselves breaking news often means events over time the ability of news outlets to provide reliable information and the resulting data voids online can be spaces where conspiracy theories take hold when a student opened fire would stoneman douglas high school in parkland florida last february killing seventeen people the conspiracy theory going to currency even as events were unfolding the shooting was faked and witnesses were in fact crisis actors while journalists attempted to debunk the theory they may inadvertently have been spreading it. so i watch a news report that debunks this idea of crisis actors but i've never heard of this term before i'm not an actor in any sense way shape or form so i get out my phone and i google the term crisis actors those search results bring up more conspiracy
4:43 am
theories the goal of conspiracy theorists and the people who want to spread these ideas around is that these conspiracy theories enter the mainstream of lexicons the tree of life shooting the alleged killer was a conspiracy theorist he bought into this narrative that jews were trying to control the us by eating immigrants and for that reason he allegedly massacred eleven. people so i want to start by trying to scare you ok ready george soros and even as we cover this conspiracy we can watch the real time reaction on the far right saying yes they're finally talking about this incorrect thing that they believe literally conspiracy theories about source of this from the outer reaches of politics to the highest reaches a government so it's a very strange line to walk where you want to serve the public interest but you don't want to help disseminate the far right and incorrect views also in the crowd
