in the future. history. first whether you are. really the coach to me. there are. two hundred leaders. john donald trump and the trent. hello i'm richard gilbert and 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 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 images from two different summits could not have told more contrast in 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
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 during that event one of the two sides would roll out a video that reeks of propaganda heavy handed and crumbs a new world can be given to. a video that speaks of a chance at a new day
a choice between the darkness and the like had you been told that that video would be produced not by pyongyang and be part of. you but by washington for p.r. yeah would you have believed that. and to many people found the video to be bizarre including members of the media both of these leaders are propaganda artists within their own right. 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
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 change 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. 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 but such an image conveyed. 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 like it captures the unraveling of
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 in international politics but what we see with the 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 do were for different points of view that we know the famous photo was the german for there was also a french official a japanese official folder and the four different points of view of the sea so that epitomizes the trade sense and then shake hands shake but
it's an eagerness the handshake is better seen through the video than the photograph because it was far more than a perfunctory or even normal manner 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 meet. so the first image is one of alienation opposition and even international condemnation of trub the second is trouble claiming that he has in a sense made peace in the very first gesture of the second. 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
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 the wider 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 this society of the spectacle and he's very good at which aren't we don't
know what's going on there 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 the ongoing show is there any substance you know all this you want world politics to be boring if you want the policy to be boring that means it's working well. but human beings are drawn to standard store as we grow up watching. television whether it's game of thrones or breaking bad or empire where there are 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
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 a mouse 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 time and runs the risk of normalizing the norms every instance of everybody who goes on these kinds of programs regularly is that they have to make sense to the president well i think the most reasonable assessment you can but you
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 these impulses or autocratic his decision making is he got he cares more about short term spectacle then he seems to care about long term strategic planning trying to explain trump's behavior as if he were a normal president who did normal things which is what i've termed an academic ways analytic normalization. trungpa is own normalize he has his own rules and by now if you're doing t.v. in you for a journalist covering politics you should know that it's not a question of normalising first trying to understand that he said tension spends five seconds he's impulsive everything is wally everything can change in america to meet in we have to know how to decode that and put it in a realistic perspective because we're dealing with a surreal only going experience but you have to make it to real for our readers and
viewers. we're discussing other media stories that are on our radar this week with one of our producers flo philips flow 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 there be multiple arrests with bloggers jailed over discussions of politics environmental 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 powers it grants the government to monitor online activity means there is now no safe place left in vietnam for people
to speak freely in the critics of this law are just talking about freedom of expression are there they're also talking about the economic implications why because another requirement of this law is its effect on global tech firms 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 me as users locally so much like them having to open up servers in hong kong to store the data of their 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 mark.
