who are almost immune against any kind of accountability or media criticism found themselves being described in gyptian media and social media as lie or deceive or oppressors and the definitely didn't like that presidency she said and that is that the revolution had begun to dismantle the sas calls on the media and we need to return to a moment where we control the media so he says this is going to take a very large statewide effort because once we control the media and returned the cycle of fear in society then we can have ultimate control. when the government wants to transform a media landscape the place to start is at the ownership lover on t.v. is a channel that used to air lively political debates like many other outlets with the
1:26 pm
new owners it now toes the government line in two thousand and sixteen the state intelligence agency did g.i.s. launched its own channel d.m.c. t.v. then last year the g.i.'s was revealed to be behind an investment group called eagle capital that has bought six newspapers and websites including the site seven as well as on. t.v. it's like the cia is starting its own channel in the us walk quietly buying c.n.n. and buzz feed and hoping that no one would notice the ownership of by the intelligence. agencies changed that it's already a line in some of these private companies by actually either making it completely entertainment and just like movies and sports and such or are advocating for a very pro state nationalistic protective kind of discourse security discourse space it will be a hell of a lot of well as you can live but don't have that they are. yet ten zero up
1:27 pm
what it had been say bob you watch a channel or a website and you say oh which intelligence agency is behind that almost obligate gyptian government through its numerous security agencies has established private companies buying and controlling various mass media establishment egyptians no longer trust their mass media godless of their private. you have officers instruction unless the news of the tires on what the next day's headlines are all national and private newspapers are practically an identical it has become a laughing stock of the not so hopeful of. the god. the legal landscape is changing too late last year egypt's media regulator the s.m.r. see proposed a new law that would allow the state to block broadcasts and websites for breaking rules that were so ambiguously word that hundreds of journalists politicians and
1:28 pm
public figures petitioned for the abolition of a law that had yet to pass among the laws that have a so-called cyber security law that under the pretext of stopping fake news with strict online journalism and encourages service providers to collect and share data on users and there's a new registration law requiring online news site. it's to pay thousands of dollars just to apply for a license if enforced it could put many sites out of business and discourage others from ever starting. the last remaining pays for free speech and for some professional journalism was the internet and they are trying everything they can to curdle this remaining space so they started with blocking these websites we have seen today find no provisions such as lengthy prison sentences. which means. working in these websites would have to observe so many precocious and red lines if
1:29 pm
cyberspace was the last vestige of political activity then the state will regulate that as well just so that the intelligence apparatus has started to buy media outlets they have nastar infiltrating things like facebook and messenger and whatsapp and if for example you forward messages on whatsapp to several individuals what you get is this dissemination of false information charged under the terrorism law and so this chilling of society and of activism has now entered this realm of cyberspace where people cannot even report on reality. it's not as though the c.c. government needs laws to jail journalists al-jazeera is mahmoud hussein is one of dozens of reporters currently behind bars accused of disseminating false news to defame the state's reputation he's been imprisoned for more than two years solitary confinement but has never been charged that's against gyptian law and it's typical
1:30 pm
. of these pretrial imprisonment as a means of technically not having any political prisoners the court case is set up you get sent to prison based on that court case that pretrial detention lasts for years without a trial ever taking place some gets really. some don't it's all part of a grand illusion manufactured by the regime but there are secret political currents working on toppling the regime and providing support for terrorist. president c.c. has grown accustomed to the journalistic red lines he has laid down with the egyptian media. has managed. and foreign news organizations reporting from inside the country are also feeling the heat as are egyptians who speak to them ten months ago this woman
1:31 pm
told the b.b.c. her daughter had been forcibly disappeared she's been jailed accused of belonging to a terrorist group a reporter for the times of london was deported last year another journalist from france was denied entry cases that have not gone unnoticed by other correspondents based in part. they are trying different approaches. with foreign journalists if you criticize the government wouldn't give you the license to work in the country or suddenly. and we've been asked to leave. egypt they are all they all live in continuous state of intimidation and exile are not able to do that work the state is now creating a new strategy to deal with the correspondents in egypt where if they get something wrong like ok you got that wrong time corresponding to that wrong then sometimes
1:32 pm
they push for credentials and so i think they are being more proactive in pushing for a certain narrative statist narrative about what's going on in. the member of the revolution broke the fear and access. barrier and people had no problem coming into squares and writing. i'm blogging and tweeting and saying what was happening. president stephen was very weary of the small meant of how can we consolidate power in a way where we can bridge turn the institutions controlled under the state and remove the independence that media has had for twenty years and that's exactly what we've seen. we'll have more on egypt in the second half of the show right now though we're looking at other media stories that are on our radar this week with one of our producers matt celebes are marcella the elections in israel are coming up in three

1:36 pm
have a habit of disappearing from the airwaves just like that television may be dwindling in importance in many countries but in egypt where literacy rates are low it remains the medium of the masses and few institutions are more influential than the evening talk shows and listening posts tarik naafa now in the highly politicized world of t.v. talk shows in each. to say that talk shows are the most important phenomenon in the way that government communicates with the public will be an undersea one then what i used under my baby shower feet in or out of many to most of it's consistent it's entertaining. you get the feeling as though you're sitting at a cafe with them. and don't mistake it for a moment this is not about bringing information to the people this is about

a state restriction of temporarily fell away talk shows became a platform for lively popular debate everybody the talk shows were always political now they deeply politicized with hosts delivering a nightly diatribe that goes on and on and on the monologue can be up to a half hour in some cases forty five minutes where you have a host not only talking but working himself or herself up emotionally. married or sometimes you would have some video theatrical props. and the other thing is the interaction not only with the in studio guests but also with viewers at home for example we've seen relatives of some of the victims of the terrorist bombings where an audience member calls begins crying on the air. and the host begins crying as well i have got that. and as
1:39 pm
a result the host becomes this emotional link this connection that brings people in their homes together i can see at least eighty percent of journalists i interviewed in egypt told me. to be first citizens and on the second professional journalists. say that there is a strong cord for subjectivity. and that is take a community set for c.s. the issue of the idea of objective journalism as trees and the importance of the personalities at play are beyond crucial without them the shows would crumble two of them happen to be the power couple of middle eastern talkers is the first and he is very likely the most handsomely paid only. he has a natural instinct of intelligence and the intelligence agencies recognise that his

1:42 pm
a ballad and i do wish i had would and i do when the what. and if you portray anybody as an enemy of the nation in a time of emergency what you're saying it's ok to jail them it's ok to beat them up and in some cases it's ok to kill them talk shows i very prominent political tool or political platform for messaging you need to support that he she because said he she is facing unprecedented ventures coming from south side but also and mainly from inside there is a conspiracy coming from. so it was a prostitute oh military wife yani home the only other little bit of a i got mad when i was despotic they are under few scratch. every critical voice can be linked to some was aggressive a roster of the bad guys real imagined and otherwise is constantly evolving to suit

all of egypt's privately owned t.v. networks having dispensed with media owners whose cooperation was never in doubt it was only a matter of time before attention turned to the big personalities fronts in egypt's talk shows this summer some of the country's best known hosts have played a pivotal role reinforcing president. a paradoxically disappeared from t.v. screens when you're going through. a little government story gets who went on vacation in august and never came back the regime in egypt has emasculated all of position it has controlled the media to a level of ninety eight or ninety nine percent they have muzzled civil society completely and so you wonder what is the remaining threat well i think the reason these talk show hosts do present a threat is because the government is at a stage where it does not tolerate even indirect influence it wants to have direct and immediate control over everything and you have to keep in mind that it all
1:45 pm
comes down to information who has it and doesn't how it's delivered hats off to the c.c. regime for understanding the link between lack of education ease of dissemination obstruction of information the government has created an environment where disbursement of the nation. unless told by government is all but impossible. and finally a geography lesson delivered over twitter by none other than the israeli military this past week israel launched air strikes on iranian forces stationed in syria then the israeli government tweeted out a message to tehran you seem to be lost it said along with a map with one set of arrows pointing to the islamic republic where iran belongs it said and another arrow pointing to syria saying where iran is that kicked off a mean war and like many conflicts in the middle east powers on the outside were
