u.s. secretary of state i can pay you a consulate has been in place for about one hundred seventy five years and it acts as a defacto u.s. embassy for palestinians so many palestinians consider the move a downgrade and diplomatic relations jacobson is a partner at the truman national security project and he says there's no going back on the embassy move even if trump leaves office bear in mind that in one thousand nine hundred five the it became law in america to try to move the embassy to jerusalem in every six months since then there's been a waiver to to prevent it from happening and it was passed on a bipartisan basis so i don't think the embassy in any way shape or form will will move back to tell of the the issue of the consulate in jerusalem once this change is made i don't imagine that it would change again but i think very importantly one part that's being missed i don't know that the israelis would object to the americans building a full fledged embassy in ramallah and i don't know why that's not something that's being discussed any change like that needs to be viewed significantly and again it
1:01 pm
just points the direction that the trip administration is going in but again i do believe that the israelis would not object to the americans putting an embassy in ramallah i think actually in fact that they would celebrate it because one of the big issues that the israelis look at is the idea of in any sort of two state solution of splitting jerusalem and if they were at the americans were to put an embassy in ramallah it would dictate that the palestinians if they were to have some sort of capital in east jerusalem it would not be the same sort of wouldn't have the same diplomatic status as ramallah so again i think the israelis would actually welcome the idea. and still ahead. to learn about how the why the education of these children could be affected by a kashmir crackdown. from the lab or treats a sanctuary we've made the chimpanzees getting some life.

humankind with their bodies. they're being catered to themselves. so i'm like julie is we're born in the wild others have never seen a tree you would think if you gave a chimp a tree they would climb it that's not true chimps are territorial sometimes fatally so to newcomers so any faults is part behaviorist part mammal matchmaker when they arrive we actually go and do observations on the groups and on the individuals and try to see where we think that they're going to best fit in and with what family they're going to do best and once we kind of make that determination. they have a say in having a say for many for the first time in their lives can make all the difference john hendren keith louisiana.

1:21 pm
questioned in december. well those are the headlines the news continues. stay with us. here is a very important fourth of information for many people around the world when all the cameras have gone i'm still here go into areas that nobody else is going to talk to people that nobody else is talking to and bringing that story to the forefront. no one race to really show the text points right and the rich are getting it. wrong for lack of a. very. low richard gaisford in europe the listening post here are some of the media stories we're covering this week how one interview that was never even broadcast your.
1:22 pm
tax reform on the news agenda a news anchor in israel learned the hard way about what can or cannot be said about the occupation and israeli soldiers like father like mother like son nicaragua where journalism and politics can be a family affair and citizen journalists have had their crack at covering the on the rest in sudan now the artists are doing their thing. this week we're leading with one of those topics that television news producers would rather leave to print journalists or better yet authors because it's complicated it's about tax rates and it's not a sexy topic not a visual story until a young dutch academic spoke at the recent world economic forum in davos and made news by telling a roomful of billionaires want to fix the global economy then dig deeper pay up it's time to tax the rich then fox news's tucker carlson invited rutger bregman
1:23 pm
onto his program mistake bregman went right after crossing the channel that he works for and the media in general for almost never covering the fundamental issue of tax reform it's fair to say that carlson did not take it particularly well the interview would not go to air but bragman managed to have the entire exchange recorded on a phone camera and once he sent it to now this an online news site it was destined to go viral and get people talking our starting point this week is tax avoidance global inequality and the complicity of big media. format is what's known as a double ender or a d.t.l. a down the line interview which means the host is in one place tucker carlson at fox news's headquarters in new york the guest in another rutger bregman in a studio in amsterdam and it was prerecorded it wasn't
1:24 pm
a lot. of help and. now typically if that kind of interview goes wrong and the channel chooses not to parrot the video never sees the light of day because it exists on the broadcasters server and nowhere else. but this one went viral obtained and released by the online site now this because in addition to showing up with an agenda. bregman had a plan he brought along a friend to record the video from the amsterdam and on his phone and to capture the audio from go thinks. he knew it was probably going to go to the protest because he was raising issues that hurt them or make them look pretty bad and part. of their dirty money he was criticizing the fact that they are paid to represent
1:25 pm
a particular kind of ideology your millionaire. or you're not talking about what you thought is the classic car crash t.v. interview and i think that made him uncomfortable as well but i think the thing that made the most uncomfortable was that he was accused of not being an independent journalist that he was accused of working to a great ideology that will show he's paying. tax. he didn't like that he took umbrage with that they're all like oh i'm against to call this off. even twenty years ago you know this would have been unthinkable the very fact there bregman was able to get it out so quickly is itself a sign of the ability of different voices sometimes to break into the narrative and interrupt the dominant interpretations of issues like say taxing the wealthy i mean
1:26 pm
i want i don't i don't know. the down the line interview between new york and amsterdam actually got its start in switzerland rutger bregman made waves in davos telling the world economic forum's well heeled audience that the best way to fix the global economy was to hit them in the pocket and har. we got to be talking about texas that's it. however fox and carlson would have been more interested in something else bregman told his audience a billionaire and observation that happened to square with fox's own ideology fifteen hundred private yet to hear survey that and ross speak about you know how the planet perhaps crosses producers thought that man would be a kindred spirit regarding the hypocrisy of billionaires flying halfway across the world but it doesn't come at this from that kind of position at all the kind of
1:27 pm
conservative populist position that maybe tucker carlson or fox news does but for me what really stood out from that interview was the moment when rocketeers to tucker carlson of being a millionaire funded by bill in the house you're not part of this. part of the problem actually. went to the heart of this debate about the role that media and well paid people within the media potentially contribute to the debate all the lack thereof around tax breaks. and the criticism. of the u.s. the coverage of tax reform in mainstream news media is disproportionately luck while tax avoidance gets sporadic mentions when celebrities from the world of sports or entertainment are involved those advocating reform like rubber bridge
1:28 pm
members tend to blame corporate leaders and the ideology of their owners for the shortfall but the truth is the little. more complicated to that a little less productive some of the media's aversion to tax stories even the corporate owned media isn't ideological it's commercial channels not wanting to lose viewers by testing their patients and burying them in numbers documents deductions credits and loopholes. you're right reporting on tax can be dry and it can be boring and ninety five percent of that work involves reading very complicated spreadsheets financial statements and e-mails that don't make much sense i do think that television has gotten so much better and they've been a great example of reporting on things like the panel in the past five years if reporting on tax and financial crimes has taught me anything it's that patience is a virtue i think stories run pretty well on television we have news walls we have
1:29 pm
discussion programs that remember that if you talk about taxation you're talking about inequality you're talking about poverty you're talking about real people's lives all that can be represented on television i think what's happening at the moment is out ideas like radical taxation across the board taxing labor income less . accumulated words these were outlier ideas only a couple of years ago but they're starting to take root now and perhaps the media is having to rethink where allocates space and time to those kind of discussions. commercial considerations are not the only thing the tax reform story is up against corporate ideology preaches that mo tax rates are a good thing that if billionaires are spared taxes proportionate to their income society will somehow benefit that's debatable but what does trickle down is the truth that starts on the executive floor and winds its way below to the news room
1:30 pm
where it becomes a journalistic truism whether it is true or false for example. if a government cuts taxes it will lead to increased economic growth there is no evidence of that and yet it's repeated as though it's true it's not a challenge the cut is a great thing because businesses small and large well left to the federal robber barrons and be able to do is they see fit with their newfound hard earned cash the problem with the media really is that there has to be an ideological capture and there is a kind of narrative that has become dominant and one of the successes of neo liberalism is it seems visibility in the fact that people are not aware including journalists are not aware that they repeat sink beneath the house you know every ten children is there a cultural difference between mainstream media and the sort of voices without seeing the general public and audiences that yes there probably is i think the
1:31 pm
media is only now coming to terms with the fact that people are challenging more bravely the status quo that even five years ago in a forum like this would not have been mentioned it's not a coincidence that in every project that we had. the swiss wakes panama papers or paradise papers there is a pretty substantial number of media moguls television station owners newspaper owners magazine owners who appear surprise surprise as using tax havens as having secret bank accounts so the question is significant is there a way in which that economic pressure leads perhaps to the distortion of media coverage the better question may be is there any way to this is my first time at davos rutger bregman has recently made waves at two institutions one a gathering of the rich and powerful the other a news network i want to. speak truth to power and i'm doing exactly the same thing
1:32 pm
right now but your a millionaire funded by a billionaire. and that's the reason why you're not talking about these issues bregman made news by stating the obvious that the rich should pay their fair share because sometimes it's not what you say that matters it's where you say it but the last word on this goes to the millionaire fox news anchor who went viral fifteen million views and counting. and. he didn't really mean that. hugh we're discussing other media stories that are on our radar this week with one of our producers tara enough starting with another interview that did not go well the u.s. based spanish language broadcaster only views you on lands a face to face with venezuelan president nicolas maduro what went wrong the interviewer jorge ramos did the interview at the presidential palace in caracas but
1:33 pm
it didn't last long barely fifteen minutes according to ramos moderate didn't like his line of questioning of the challenging him on electoral fraud human rights concerns and humanitarian issues ramos he showed me this video of three young venezuela and eating from a garbage truck. not only did my door then abruptly end the interview ramos and five of his colleagues were held by security confiscated all of their equipment including the memory cards six of them were deported from venezuela the next day seems like some of the best interviews these days aren't making it to air what arma duros people saying about this so the information minister jorge rodriguez tweeted that ramos was a stooge for the u.s. state department he said the government has welcomed hundreds of john but that quote we don't lend ourselves to cheap shows and to be fair richard last week spanish journalist jordi alba away from the channel called left sexed up sat down
1:34 pm
with a mentor in an interview where he pulled no punches and nothing untoward occurred we know the history and politics at play here caracas has reason to be suspicious of western news outlets many have largely uncritical supports for what some see as u.s. regime change in venezuela the government has arrested or deported news crews from chile france and spain but jorge ramos is nobody's stooge his reputation is found moving on to israel now an anchor woman there named all shot at. we're taking a lot of heat over comments that she made about the occupation of what did she say and why are people so worked up about it caught her took aim at an institution that is seldom criticized on israeli airwaves the military. limited the minutes of our lives to have a couple. of people she was referring to a segment they just run on channel thirteen a privately owned israeli channel about the beating of
1:35 pm
a palestinian man and his son by israeli soldiers last month the victims were hung cuffed and blindfolded and the fifteen year old boy was made to watch of his father had his ribs and nose broken the soldiers reportedly started dancing afterwards so channel thirteen got thousands and of complaints over callers remarks she received death threats and the network has since find her a bodyguard israeli politicians currently in the middle of an election campaign feast on this incident prime minister benjamin netanyahu tweeted about it but his education minister naftali bennett went right after you confuse the idea of soldiers give their lives so that you can sleep soundly apologize caller did apologize and i show you the next week but she added this i mean it's there's no mclean viber go but me make him a villain and. surely all the time i feel you a cow shall not the michel mean there are still and then oh hey leno. only at sea
1:36 pm
org. ok thanks to our. last month we reported on one of nicaragua's most outspoken journalists fleeing the country carlos father nando chamorro said he feared for his life that he was facing extreme threats from the government when civil unrest erupted last year against the government of president daniel ortega chair models news outlets all on and on the air reported on those demonstrations and the crackdown that followed more than five hundred protesters jailed more than three hundred killed this is not just a story of another crusading journalist there's a lot of history here to morrow comes from an influential family the to morrows own media outlets his mother is a former president and his late father paid for his journalism with his life that was back in the one nine hundred seventy s. when daniel ortega led the sandinista rebels the political roles were reversed and ortega was fighting to get the story out with one foot in journalism and the other
1:37 pm
in politics that your morals don't just speak truth to power they've held power the listening posts to sell a piece are now on a family that lives and works at the intersection of journalism and politics in nicaragua. this is a story that spans generations a family history of journalism including with politics a story about the get out world that is now being told from costa rica but you know what you learn. you haven't done little bit about it who. can let's pick number ten not in our heads up i'm presenting. this week one of his country's most watched current affairs show is. not december police raided one of the other media outlets and. a week later they targeted. another media
1:38 pm
house and arrested. you know for tomorrow it was time to leave stock out of the records they raided our offices and occupied them in the military spy unless police have harassed us my home was surrounded by checkpoints for every time i had to leave or go back home i was interrogated. was whether to wait a day or rested on a trumped up criminal charge or continue to report from costa rica that any god i worked there that was very god got a fair number of columns from nando is the journalist with the most credibility and most impact in nicaragua his journalism is heavyweights and is focused on the political and economic issues a combative journalist that pall of finds uncomfortable and not just the current government because he has been critical of all governments of different political stripes political more defined in the. ground though what's happened to carlos fernando is an example of what's happening more generally i think in december and
1:39 pm
again in the water from c.n.n. . and his head of news you see it in asia but charged in basically kidnapped by the state and they're still in jail this is how the state cracks down on the media can . only make. more of the reporting the civil unrest in nicaragua says a wave of protests against the government of president daniel ortega destabilize the country last april. story i think i work in the input device that's one reason why tomorrow is considered by the president speech persona non-grata but the other is in the name more of the country's most influential family based in politics and in journalism five of tomorrow's forefathers and his mother ruled the country and today his cousin one moral is one of the opposition movements leaders the family also was main print outlets including the oldest and. most renowned
1:40 pm
newspaper lapin suck papers critical coverage of the crackdown to let the government pound its ink and last month published a plant from page in protest is up by an embargo that blank page really made an impression on all of us journalists to see that a newspaper with such a long history in nicaragua i would need to resort to that form of protest against censorship we really are experiencing a state of siege and persecution in the media. it's a newspaper which has always being in opposition to power and one which has always had very good journalists it is clearly aligned with an economic cost but that has not prevented it from doing the important work of watchdog journalism watchdog journalism many other. media outlets like have always behaved more like a political party than a newspaper has been able to determine who is allowed to be
1:41 pm
a presidential candidate who is allowed to be a politician the newspaper product that's what i call it. salon has a dog in this fight and he'll. yeah he's a pro-government journalist a prominent voice on state t.v. but he also has a point for the past ninety years lebensohl has been at the center of nicaraguan politics during the one nine hundred seventy s. there's a food decade long summers a family dictatorship tightens its grip on power most financial models father was an editor. and the country's most outspoken opposition figure this is a fucking moron was assassinated in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight by some as a gunman protests erupted paving the way for then you know take a left wing revolutionaries the sandinista to take power. with
1:42 pm
violetta to come with a newspaper during the eighty's and then the country defeating ortega in the nineteen ninety elections to become president. petro cracking john moore's legacy remains his cool values which were about the fight for public freedom as an ecological still a rallying cry that's what journalists and ordinary people find so important about that story one that sadly remains relevant to this day c c n the weekend they don't . look at what came after pedophile walking chamorro which was no less influential politically it was just the ghost of what here in the cargo has come to be known as the. people who push their political interests through the medium of newspapers in order to set the government's agenda. if i used their papers to wield influence that fourth day then i don't think many have
1:43 pm
taken from the medium with more reach television a smiling. god only love the way they look at you nancy i don't know where to. look out for our bottle. get it but it is that if i if yes then for the past ten years the ortega's have bought up seven t.v. channels both to traditional sandinista party outlets like. yeah and cut government advertising across non sundanese outlets because out there knows that political battles are often won or lost depending on the media. but it is a sort of i thought boy a mistake in order to take a cab back into power in two thousand and six he created t.v. stations and placed them under his children's control. we already had camilla morris all involved in channel four channel eight and then there's the state
1:44 pm
