2:01 pm
put it on manual and then this fatal crash happened many questions remain of course also because the investigators say why did the pilot fly back from bali the night before with a plane which was in such a bad condition so that's why investigators are urging air to improve their safety culture air has already quited a bit of safety culture for many years pilots have been complaining about overwork maintenance problems have been reported so there's a lot of questions also what the government will do with air looking at the results of this preliminary report still ahead. we're open for business i hope you're open for partnership afghanistan's president says the time to invest in his country is now while the u.n. warns the family. doctors claim of the world's first designer a baby sparks global outrage.

2:06 pm
a surprise that mike espy was making a run of it as a democratic senatorial candidate and that have been for two reasons one of them was that he was an unusually strong candidate for this state and the other one is that cindy hyde smith made a number of gaffes that caused her some serious problems first of all she made a joke to a supporter saying that if he were to invite her to a hanging she would sit in the front row well that did not go well here in this state where five thousand african-american men were lynched after the civil war she was caught she was photographed in a confederate battle cap on facebook and she made some jokes about voter suppression saying maybe it wasn't such a bad thing to make it a little more difficult for liberals to vote all of those things caused her some serious problems in order to rescue were president donald trump came to this state of mississippi a state where republican presidents don't typically have to come to support a republican candidate and he made two stops here he's a very popular candidate here he won here by eighteen percentage points in two

thousand and sixteen and in the end mike espy made a run of it which is unusual for a democrat in this state but cindy hyde smith declared victory and she said she won because in the end voters knew her heart that is they knew what she really meant when she said that and that was not a racist comment she says but what's been the reaction. to their defeat. well mike espy in his concession speech said that the outcome as he had hoped it would be but that they had made a historic grassroots campaign and that is very true this is a state where an african-american man has not won since the nineteenth century so it was a historic campaign he ran he had president obama making robo calls for him those are our recorded calls to voters but in the end he was eight or nine percentage points away that's closer than usual here in the deep south but it was not enough

2:22 pm
for and against wiki leaks and its journalists not content to control the narrative in the news media the kremlin turns its eyes towards russian cinema and what it say mark zuckerberg is blaming the media for some of facebook's problems he might want to focus a little closer to home and then of course there's donald trump and it's the end of the white house correspondents' dinner as we know it sort of we begin with julian assange and the news peg like no other last week in court papers filed in the u.s. in a case completely unrelated to the wiki leaks founder there was a paragraph confirming that a secret indictment has been filed against a sanch prosecutors called it an administrative mistake meaning a supposedly clerical error confirmed something that a sanch had always feared but that the u.s. department of justice had never admit it wants him in jail it's been more than six years now since the sands was granted asylum at the ecuadorian embassy in london
2:23 pm
and investigation into sexual assault related allegations made by two women in sweden has long since been dropped but british police say that as sanjay will be arrested the moment he steps out of that embassy for breach of bail less than a decade ago julian assange had media outlets eating out of his hand and gover. with secrets to hide on high alert now he's at the mercy of an ecuadorian government that's running out of patience and he may be running out of time our starting point this week is a court document and a revelation never met to see the light of day. of all the twists and turns in the essential story the initial deluge of classified documents wiki leaks published the resulting headlines the sexual assault related allegations made in sweden the irregularities surrounding those cases the self-imposed exile on ecuadorian territory in london and the six year long waiting
2:24 pm
game since this may be the oddest twist of all a clerical error a sloppy case of cut and paste that appears to justify julian assange has concerns about having to face justice american style. there's nothing like a cock up to make the truth come to light so there's a filing on a completely unrelated and not very high profile case in the eastern district of virginia and they had copied and pasted a section from another indictment and so this indictment about some totally random guy ended up mentioning janus and what they haven't said is what the charges are and what period of wiki leaks activity they relight. the clerical error took place at a court in alexandria virginia right next door to washington where a grand jury has reportedly been investigating julian assange since two thousand and ten or shape an understanding of what the past six years or as being like back
2:25 pm
then wiki leaks was in its heyday the iraq and afghan war logs revealed a brutal truth about those invasions confirming war crimes previously denied by the pentagon. the diplomatic cables were later exposed america's duplicity in its. dealings with foreign governments leaks was partnering with news organizations heavy hitters like the new york times the guardian and moaned in france making headlines around the world by the end of two thousand and ten the moaned named julian assange its person of the year time magazine's readers did the same and rolling stone called him rock star of the barack obama's vice president joe biden had another term for a sandwich high tech terrorist if you go in challenge and threaten and undermine the world's most powerful institutions as wiki leaks has done they are going to
2:26 pm
impose on you or tell you there was actually a two thousand and eight us army report that described what the lake's as an enemy of the state and talked about different ways that they could destroy the organization and we can read about that document because ironically it got leaked to wiki leaks which then published it on its own website the left was very excited about what he said excited about the fact that things that governments had traditionally kept secret were no longer big going to be kept secret. that seem to be part of this whole new way nothing is secret anymore in the age of the internet they fear a domino effect they realize that the inside the u.s. intelligence community there are many people who have seen all sorts of abuses c.f. terrified that this could be hundred chelsea manning thousand and thus no then they cannot julian assange so whole they can do is use legal cases about against julian
2:27 pm
assange and wiki leaks which they have that. in two thousand and ten a legal case was opened against the sand in sweden for sexual assault based on the testimonies of two women he denied the allegations and asked to be questioned in london a common practice in such cases he said he feared the. going to sweden could lead to an extradition to the us the swedes initially refused but eventually interviewed him at the ecuadorian embassy in two thousand and sixty six years after the investigation began then the swedes dropped the case without ever laying charges a basic fact that seemed lost on news organizations being a victory for yourself now. do you think sweden will reactivate the rape charges that the two jobs get. despite the swedes closing the case the u.k. says it will arrest a sanch if he steps out of the embassy for breaching his bail conditions it's
2:28 pm
a standoff the un calls a case of arbitrary detention a denial of a sanjay human rights stefan you're more it see is an investigative journalist who has probed how the essential case has been conducted in both sweden and the u.k. thanks to my freedom of information act requests in sweden it is possible to reveal the crucial role of the u.k. authorities in creating these legal and diplomatic quagmire for example advising the swedish prosecutors to question julian assange ali after these extradition to sweden they write the police do not think that the case is being dealt with as just another extradition request depressed was running some stories allies sweden could drop case says a savage and. wrote to the street prosecutors don't you dare get called finn. even julian assange just supporters can see that wiki leaks
2:29 pm
is practices can be contentious such as exposing material without redactions after the failed coup in turkey in two thousand and sixteen it published what it called the a.k.p. emails three hundred thousand of them they revealed the person. details of millions of turks putting their privacy and much more at risk similar complaints have come from afghanistan saudi arabia and other countries and the sanchez decision to publish material during the two thousand and sixteen u.s. election campaign e-mails from inside the clinton team hacked by persons unknown but that u.s. intelligence agencies say came via russia have damaged wiki leaks his journalistic standing and infuriated anti trump forces in america it's true that julian assange has used to be a lot more popular before somebody undermined american democracy with the help of
2:30 pm
the russians and gave us this president who is destroying democracy in the united states and threatening me and our world i don't see a songe as a victim anymore i see it as someone who helped to victimize american democracy and if julian assange has being demonized for that and count me among his demonize or. conversations that we've been able to read that have been leaked seem to be suggesting that julian would be willing to do things specifically to help the trump campaign certainly that's a legitimate critique of wiki leaks that i think we can all see evidence for what we've never seen any evidence for is that there's been any even communication let alone call operation or cooperation between wiki leaks and the russian government even though and for some reason it's now totally acceptable in western media outlets to simply assert as though it is fact. julian assange has said the source of the clinton e-mails was not the russian government nor was it a state party a sanjay also has issues with his new landlord the ecuadorian president who granted him asylum rafael correa has been succeeded by lenin merino who wants better
2:31 pm
relations with washington the new government hasn't a victim to say but his internet connection his communications with the outside world are now controlled by the embassy with his health reportedly failing the lack of sunlight getting to julian assange cannot even go to a hospital for fear of being arrested and the sand also has caused me to feel aggrieved by the same news outlets that once feasted on the material that he handed to them on a plate not unlike his ecuadorian hosts many of those news organizations have turned against him if you are in the embassy of a country you should probably try and be a good house guest he's also on multiple times acted against that credentials diplomatic interests he picks a fight with spy which is one of the allies he interfered in the us election
2:32 pm
and. in the end they will find something to get and i or a son just patients will crack in the try and make a bright for it whatever you think of julian whatever you think of wiki leaks what has been done to him over the last six to seven years is a very sustained. serious and deliberate violation of his basic liberties and yet that has been almost entirely disregarded by the western media instead the attempt is to make you view him with such disdain in contempt it's incredibly insidious because what they're doing is essentially the dirty work of those who are violating julian assange and his rights being turned over to the us government being prosecuted for journalism for publishing documents has always been his principal worry and it ought to be the worry of anyone who does journalism anywhere in the world. we're discussing other media stories that are on our radar this week with one of
2:33 pm
our producers tarak nuff tarik last week the new york times produced an investigative piece on facebook some of the questionable tactics the company has been using to go after its critics what did that piece actually reveal primarily that facebook hired a p.r. code to finance a company with strong links to the us republican party to produce negative news coverage on not just its competitors like apple and google but also the platforms critics including billionaire investor george soros so are sort of become a bit of a whipping boy for right wing voices and conspiracy there given that he's liberal and jewish often thought described facebook as a menace to society in a speech at the beginning of this year the times reported that the finest sent documents to news outlets attempting to link him to an organization called freedom from facebook the company's c.e.o. a month and the.
