4:04 am
paris on the nineteenth consecutive saturday of yellow vests protests earlier there were also scuffles between police and protesters in other cities including lean in the north and to lose in the cells these were the scenes in as police fired tear gas. but the day was largely peaceful in paris after police found protesters from the following the looting and torching of shops and businesses there last weekend soldiers who are also the ploy to guard public buildings a move that has been widely criticized the demonstrations began last november over fuel tax rises but have since grown into a wider movement against. david chaytor is live for us in eastern that paris is so it does seem that things have quieted down but after nineteen consecutive weeks what do you think it's going to take to actually get the yellow vests to stop these protests. this interesting point because we
4:05 am
just heard from the syrian ministry that across france a number of yellow vests demonstrators down but more than forty thousand that's a big increase on the last weekend where we saw all these violent clashes in paris when there are about thirty two thousand estimated across wrong now here in paris. also signs that the number of protesters is increasing despite president emanuel's micron's efforts to diffuse the crisis there were something like five thousand yellow vests demonstrators making as you said march through the streets of paris ending up the. church in the march and that happened without any real violence at all just parady violence as you said afterwards when they began to disperse now that is essentially because of the tactics used by the police some six
4:06 am
thousand of them were deployed and troops to guard public buildings did seem to work it was a policy of no toleration of any violence i saw it myself quite recently this evening another piece a very quick to take action against anybody who is showing signs of really going isn't all violence but. in the end what seems to be happening is this protest is not going away as you said the nineteenth consecutive saturday with the other vest protest as it's a protest that is not going away present macko has failed to diffuse a political crisis for. the how much support would you say that they have not just in the main cities but across france. well again an instinct question because some of the latest polls said that at least seventy percent of what they had begun to worry about the way that the universe movement was diverging away from its original aims which of course with the fuel
4:07 am
tax hike which president michel had to do you turn on but they really is a whole number of the issues despite the grand debate about the l a vest to say need to be addressed by the french government and by the french president they still think he's a president of the rich they still think that he has no care or regard for the poor rural communities where people and families and so many were because of finding it hard to make ends meet that run out of money before the end of the month now this problem has not gone away and so for president draw who launched the big debate the grand debate to try and listen to the people he's got to come up with some solid new policies and perhaps spend even more money than he has already in trying to relieve that poverty poverty felt most of all outside of paris in the suburbs to the outer suburbs of paris but also in the the out to rural communities that has
4:08 am
not gone away it was going away i there's no policy in the french government the moment to ease those pressures and those pains of being felt so i expect that yet again there will be more protests by calm put a number on it. but before a president comes up with new policies and a new effort to relieve the poverty and. these protests will continue and it will be a continuing political threat to president emanuel mark rylance david chaytor with the latest from paris thank you. emergency services are trying to rescue thirteen hundred people on board a cruise ship off the coast of norway the viking sky sent a mayday call after it encountered engine problems and bad weather helicopters and rescue boats are at the scene in high waves and strong winds at least one hundred people have been airlifted off the boat so far

4:12 am
silence from donald trump which is unusual from this president as we all know he's one that likes to tweet his thoughts at all hours of the day nothing on this at all there's lots of speculation what he read into that who knows the bottom line is we have heard from sarah sanders the white house press secretary just not too long ago and that as of now the white house has not been briefed on the contents of the mueller report so they are just as much in the dark as everybody else this is a report that's in the hands of the attorney general bar he's reviewing it we don't even know how many pages this report is it could be ten twenty five hundred who knows but he's reviewing it and as soon as he's ready to present it to congress or at least to present it to the leaders of congress he will do so and at that point we expect the report will be leaked almost immediately and probably the white house will be briefed right before it goes to congress as well but so far waited about two years for the mueller to finish its investigation and still waiting to find out

4:21 am
chaos. at least it doesn't have to rush. rush is coming now i described as a terrorist attack. hello i'm richard gives birth and you're at the listening post here are some of the stories we're tracking this week in the aftermath of christchurch the role the news media played in covering the story and what led to it c.n.n. kellyanne conway the puff piece and the online blowback senegal where politicians
4:22 am
and rappers are connected at the hip and message in a bottle and she said a rather confusing one from the israeli election campaign it's been just over a week now since fifty people muslim worshippers were massacred in new zealand the gunman live streamed his killing spree on facebook in the video all seventeen minutes of it spread from there there is a depressing pattern to the coverage of stories like this one the big tech platform scrambled to take down the offending video and then face questions over whether they did enough quickly enough mainstream news outlets and or a state of inner conflict playing that video on a loop would be wrong but they've got clicks and ratings to consider they find a face to put on the story not the murderers since he's a white supremacist they go for new zealand's prime minister just send to our dern a white politician getting far more coverage than the victims our starting point this week is not new zealand it's
4:23 am
a stray it's where the killer came. from and it's where a lot of people are blaming the media especially news outlets owned by rupert murdoch for sowing the seeds of the hate unleashed in christchurch. journalism is built through words and images sometimes though the story lies in the numbers a study conducted by one path network and islamic media outlet based in sydney tallied up the number of negative stories that five newspapers owned by rupert murdoch's news corp produced in the year two thousand and seventeen these days islam sells so it's no surprise that newspapers are cashing in. but you might be shocked to know just how much they are it found almost three thousand such stories referring to islam or muslims alongside words such as radical. or terrorism
4:24 am
headlines like. the head of the class from syria with. let's just in twenty seventeen. we're talking more than a articles a day trying islam and muslims negatively once every second day in two thousand and seventeen there was a front page that demonized and spoken to people about muslims and this is bound to have an impact on the way that australians and mainstream c.v. spend slim's murdoch has personally come out and attacked muslims on twitter previously his newspapers are quite disproportionate in their coverage when it comes to muslims they exaggerate certain aspects they are quite divisive and dangerous and sometimes are completely wrong if you slam was a person then islam would have a very good defamation case against the mood of press the media is still powerful in the sense that a lot of people turn to it as their primary source of news and information and certainly for older australians or people who continue to watch t.v. and consume the mainstream newspapers they're not really getting the diversity. i
4:25 am
don't want this to be a bashing of one particular news organization it's actually across the board some places are just more egregious than others. and while the murdoch media empire is headquartered in new york and entrenched in london it got its start and remains hugely influential you know that's where the christchurch killer was born raised and in all likelihood radical. if australia is mainstream media helped the murderous believe he's signing on in social media with where he went to spread his first stop was on a website called a chair he posted his manifesto seventy three pages the day before the mass then he live streamed his attack on facebook from there it spread reposed it on you tube talked about on reddit travelling the world before the big tech platforms even song what was happening on their sites the killer clearly understood the way the
4:26 am
internet works and exploit it. i do think that there was a type of mocking the media kind of element to it i took away from that that there was a clear attempt to game both the media system the news the its coverage patterns against it but also use that media system to get attention for what he was trying to do it same time the internet is a double edged sword i know it was in on it in the past as a tool to put forward underrepresented voices we know now that it's also amplified the voices of hi that for every instance of its news to topple authoritarian regimes we have incidents like the live streaming of the matter of fifty. the early days of the internet or college the wild west anybody can have a voice anybody can have an opinion it's great it's not that way anymore and so on and their business models don't work if they shut people down you could look at them as a pure distillation of free expression ideology but i would say more this is a market choice you know that they their sites don't exist literally if people are unable to post and comment i think we should recognise that. white supremacy and
4:27 am
all the ideologies of hate preexisted the internet and so while we pay due attention to the sheer speed and global reach of the internet we need to talk about how hateful ideologies come into being what allows them to flourish and i have to say that although internet platforms have a reach and spreads that other media don't print media but cost media are not without their share of responsibility. when the story broke across the mainstream news media the new zealand government quickly banned domestic outlets from showing the video deeming the material objectionable the prime minister just sindar dern went further when she vowed to never say the gunman's name he saw many things from his active here but one was notoriety. and this is why i never hear his name or mash too many global news outlets followed that same approach
4:28 am
voluntarily choosing not to show the video images of the perpetrator or identify him by the exceptions one of which was the mail online a british news website were widely criticised and quickly shamed into taking the video down prime minister our journey has been a near constant feature in the news coverage widely praised for the sensitivity she showed to the victims' families and her government's almost instant ban on semiautomatic weapon somehow a politician who campaigned on reducing immigration to new zealand has become the face of this story and in congress already that was noted by this cambridge university academic. well let me first clarify i think it is good stamps to send the order and as prime minister is doing her job she is doing but dignity and competence so i have no issues with her there is a book coming in the box has to do with not who just send our order but what function she is playing fifty people who are muslim. have lost their lives they
4:29 am
should be at the heart of this story part of what is happening i think is a degree of damage control and i think the figure of just in the order is being deployed to do that damage control which is to say the repeated claimed this is not who we are i think a more helpful claims to say this is not who we want to be and we need to grapple with this as a community so that we can become who we aspire to be rather than dissidents this thing this is not who we are when news organizations put such a focus on a single figure they must receive a need on the part of white audiences the people doing the clicking what kind of need would we be talking about i think that we know this from hollywood that stories that don't have a white characters somewhere along the way even if it's a largely black cost don't want this it's wide interest and i think that the idea
4:30 am
goes well beyond hollywood it comes to our news stories as well and i think it is not accidental that just send. elicits the clicks that news organizations and platforms need because here is somebody who does allow a certain kind of redemption narrative. if prime minister are dern really is a white redeemer she now has plenty of company this past friday the muslim call to prayer was broadcast nationwide on state owned television news anchors were headscarves in solidarity so did countless women of all religious descriptions sending messages of their own however this story did not start in new zealand its causes lie elsewhere including a strain and the so-called news outlets that have trafficked in hate for so long
4:31 am
for them with. it's still a long way off. these people need to be accountable for their actions and although some of them have come out with words of condolences and you know some messages of support please thanks but no thanks treatment centers of support are not something that we need we need radical change we need do the rules to protect muslims from the system of phobia because the reality is is that you have contributed to the stomach phobic climate in australia and new zealand and around the world your words your actions are complicit. we're discussing other media stories that are on our radar with one of our producers and mena c.n.n. put out a piece this week a rather lengthy one on the white house spokesperson kellyanne conway it got a lot of flack over that report walk us through that story so this story is part of
4:32 am
a c.d.s. that's being run by c.n.n. it's called and i'm not kidding bad ass women d.c. it's about powerful women in the u.s. captain conway fighting for trump on t.v. is valuable currency for a cable news obsessed president but the report runs eight and a half minutes and it profiles one of the most prolific liars of the trumpet ministration now bear in mind c.n.n. says that it does facts first journalism and throughout this entire report there's just a passing mention of kellyanne conway is deliberate and persistent dissent from nation but she is heavily criticised for sometimes taking it too far entering the realm of alternative facts there are lots of problems here it's not just what the report emits it's also the way in which c.n.n. normalizes conway and the role that she's playing now there are actually interview producers at c.n.n. who have said they will not be a conduit because of her lies and now you see this puff piece on the same network now on social media the blowback was immediate there were lots of comments and
4:33 am
gifts and people asking why would the network even do this. now one of the only plausible theories is access trump and c.n.n. article loggerheads however in washington access still matters so you got in touch with c.n.n. asked them questions about this no one gets back to you but those questions they went beyond this particular report that yes we're heading towards the two thousand and twenty presidential elections and i wanted to ask c.n.n. given that experience of the two thousand and sixteen cycle have been learned anything are we going to see anything different now you might remember during the primary season c.n.n. would just cut to trump rallies and run them in their entirety it's great for ratings but for the candidate it's basically a fleet i just free air time after those elections c.n.n. president jeff zucker he spoke to new york times magazine and he said the idea that politics is a sport is undeniable we understood that and we approached it that way the recipe for the network hasn't changed c.n.n. still books trump backers who come on to the air they lie they create flash points
4:34 am
that are made for t.v. there's an overreliance on panel discussions with a fair amount of shouting it's what c.n.n. called a diversity of perspectives reasonable viewers have come not to expect anything of fox news the used to do of c.n.n. but look at all of this it doesn't bode very well for the elections coming up ok thanks mina. sunnah goals presidential election held late last month may have passed you by after all what sets the west african nation apart from many of its neighbors a stable and steady democracy doesn't usually make news however those following the campaign would have been struck by one of the defining features of senegalese politics hip hop artists and the pivotal roles that they can play in elections a major reason for that demographics the average age of citizens there is exceptionally low just nineteen rappers were among the founders of the country's largest social movement credited with swaying the previous election back in two thousand and twelve since then a social media boom has boosted raps reach even further and senegalese. politicians
4:35 am
have taken note this year all the leading candidates hit the campaign trail with at least one rapper in their corner listening posts daniel to a t. now on how hip hop became the language of politics for senegal as. in most countries political candidates hope for the endorsement of a newspaper or two perhaps a media mogul but in senegal if last month's election was anything to go by rappers seem to be the influences to get on site. the incumbent president. had the group best. to perform a prime minister. it was daddy. meanwhile another candidate who. had friends he's backing him. you know like i think the reason why rappers have
4:36 am
played such a central role in setting these politics is partly because the country's extraordinary young many young people are turning to parties. voice of the streets and providing a way to think about politics especially in the most recent presidential election rapper's. cynical attempt by these politicians. with your you saw all of the major cities presidential candidates trying to find endorsements rapper's this was you know very much an attempt to try to neutralize the impact of . this on. the right. is one of senegal's most political and most popular groups. kirky doesn't endure specific candidates out of principle but it's anti government that. is the biggest hits of the campaign.
4:37 am
means tricks the. main language and insult aimed squarely at the president not the south and one he didn't take kindly to this is would be. sounds respond spoke to the impact that hip hop and could be in particular can have on young voters back in two thousand and eleven the rappers helped found the social movement. french for we've had enough and the following year when i was in opposition trying to get elected the movement was credited with tipping the vote his way. but you want to march along with other young wrath against the vital role in the fight against the former president on. what had wanted to change the constitution but he on a march mobilized citizens and even politicians and helped get the bill defeated then in the presidential election in two thousand and twelve little position to
4:38 am
live had a major impact on the result and the transfer of power to. it was nothing short of a political revolution got a mark the cost we want to show open and think markets. is well aware of the power hip-hop house and senate. before two thousand and twelve we were just protesting rappers who focused on political and social issues but that year we felt a sense of urgency and we took the own omar movement to the streets the former president had banned protest marches so we launched what we called urban guerrilla poetry buses going around the country to get people to register to vote we wrote drops like. if you're eighteen years old go get registered during the campaign on the south came to me. he said i limit my term to five years my family won't be involved in public affairs i'll do this i'll do that but it turned out to be nothing but lies someone like that doesn't deserve another mandate so people are
4:39 am
in the middle but. this time around the younger more rappers were not able to repeat the success they had had five years earlier in unseating the president macky cell was reelected nonetheless hip hop seems to have secured a place of the political table in the senate got itself is is is quite distinctive within the west african sub region senegal has always been known as a society that is very supportive of the arts report saying or the first senegalese president himself was a poet and an intellectual who devoted tremendous amounts of resources to developing the culture in senegal collectively a lot of money was put in. the arts. and the us rappers who talk about sex drugs make millions but here if you don't talk about the issues that are relevant to people you won't respect artists take their responsibility seriously and rewrite politically conscious lyrics it's important to remember that is meant to be
4:40 am
a tool for raising awareness a tool of social transformation. the power of hope is a gateway to senate goes beyond politics. pay is a newscast route to a beat it's founders who man and katie rhyme their take on the news in french. cut me. off. they even host debates. but i don't know half a started life but its success in attracting senegal's digital natives soon caught the attention of mainstream media when something like. when it comes to talking about social issues rap is the most powerful medium because it
4:41 am
gets to the biggest audience general rep a starter on you tube and then channel two s t v also. it's journalists were reticent to begin with because they thought that people were messing with the news but they quickly understood that we were not trying to take place in the country we are trying to help them with their work. traditional media like television and radio has had to adapt and catch up with changing times it's no longer like before we had a monopoly on the news the rise of social media meant we had to update our output. and i'll drop a is a way of simplifying political news and making it accessible to citizens who might not want to watch news broadcasts they do not report the news they do not produce information they take news already pre-processed by television channels to present it to citizens with a taste of music and it's lovely it's quite an artistic creation that they are
4:42 am
simply going to stick to social media food on the way in africa driven by young populations and cheap chinese smartphones as unable to pay to go international backed by the ngo the open society initiative for west africa it's rapper's have kick started similar projects across the region in mali. but there is the. getting. the ivory coast. and but. pay is not alone in taking conscious rap. borders pergi have also started something of a butterfly effect with more traditional means and more radical elements. who. has inspired people in many african countries for example we went to burkina faso
4:43 am
and together with iraq present civil society activists and we created the ballet sit wyoming. which helped overthrow the president in two thousand and four. we went to the republic of congo to equitorial guinea to mali gambia and other guys to meet young activists and musicians from various movements. and last year we hosted the gathering with all of them here and. we think hip hop conserve as an agent of change of africa and developing the youth of the future. if we could visit the influence of sending these rappers west africa. has been pretty extraordinary one of the most interesting political phenomena they were actually able to form in popular movements multiple west african countries so hip hop artists have really sort of recognized that they can play this role with mobilizing to try. to spread
4:44 am
