the investigation into him from the house democrats saying that he needs to be investigated for treason is incredibly serious treason can carry the death penalty so that is another norm broken by this president he went on to say that he deserves to face his accuser that's not how this works he's not facing a criminal charge in which case he could and he would be entitled to meet his accuser this is a person who came forward under the whistleblower statute so his identity is supposed to be protected that said he's expected to meet with members of congress behind closed doors and that makes it very likely that his identity is going to come out then the president in tweets tried to frame the whistleblower as being wrong in their complaint that in fact is not true because the white house released its own summary of the call before the whistleblower complaint came out at it said very specifically what the whistleblower said happened actually happened on the call so the president's sending the message that he is trying to spin this story sending the message is obviously spot up and it's just going to continue we expect

election result but i'm used to carrying some of the around with me. the other big losers are the social democrats who worked with their ideological opponents in the far right to force this election and have now suffered their worst ever result on. this this is not what we hoped for this is not what we fought for for weeks day after day and until the very last minute i have to be honest and say we're not satisfied with the result the wild card in the new parliament will be the green party back in force after a period in the political wilderness and potentially in a position to join a coalition with the center right this was an election sebastián court said he did not want at 1st one he said his country did not need and yet in the end one which has propelled him back into pole position to return to power dominate cain al-jazeera vienna. at least one passenger has died after

1:18 pm
attacks saturday they were not as big as feared and that could be taken as a positive sign taliban are still in a position to talk they didn't want to launch hevia talks to block all the. destination democracy is important but for many afghans peace is what they really want is the only way they lives can be substantially improved. outa 0 a couple now $25.00 supercars seized from the vice president of equitorial guinea have sold at auction for more than $23000000.00 so as prosecutors took the cars back and 2016 as part of a corruption investigation the money will go to charities and the tiny west african country which is also one of africa's top oil produces. hello again i'm. with the headlines saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin has

here at the listening post stay with us. been accused by several women of. this country confinement all the while you've refrained from speaking to the media why have you trolls into the protocol islamic studies professor tonic drummed on to al-jazeera about the ongoing raping his actions against. protesters have really look like that was. i think. that. i. would have thought. that. alarm richard gives birth in europe the listening post here are some of the media stories we're covering this week they've been disappeared silenced and censored but the gyptian are taking to the streets once again where does the story
1:22 pm
go from here the canadian news site that's a platform for far right voices from outside the country and the effect that that can have on audience she's become one of the most recognizable climate activists in the world and they hate gratitude and berg attracts is disturbing and britain's boris johnson can still count on getting the kid glove treatment from much of the u.k. media i think. that. but online they're playing a different tune compared to the days of talk where square the numbers seem insignificant a few 100 protesters scattered across egypt on consecutive fridays calling for an end to president abdullah fatah el-sisi is rule but those demonstrators have been the 1st visible signs of political unrest there in 6 years and as the 2000 tourists since then would suggest the c.c. government sees this as a threat the demonstrations were called for by the gyptian exile living in spain
1:23 pm
muhammad ali is a former military contractor therefore someone from the inside of the says. them and a part time actor he's been posting videos online tales of rampant corruption some of which implicate presidency see him self alys videos have spurred other egyptians including military personnel to post their own stories of graft and that has analysts theorizing that the real threat to the general turned president may come from within the military not that you would get any of that from the gyptian media outlets most of which do the government's bidding and initially tried to ignore this story now they're just trying to make it go away our starting point this week is cairo. when egyptians revolted against president hosni mubarak in 2011 the spark was external it came from to news you know where the arab spring movement began before
1:24 pm
spreading across north africa this recent unrest back to back friday's of scattered demonstrations was also triggered from the outside from spain but by an egyptian inside. and i don't believe that we're living with. muhammad ali is a wealthy contractor now living in barcelona his family grew rich through building contracts involving the egyptian military he's also a part time film and television actor when he started going online on september 2nd he had political stories to tell tales of corruption at the very top and the acting skills to tell the. muhammad ali is the guy that you sit down with at the cafe and have a hook up with on a thursday night everybody understands him they feel him he connects everyone knows that there's massive systematic corruption and much of it has been linked to the
1:25 pm
control of the army of the crime and laid out. in very clear terms by names by numbers by the birth of the hmong in the city of baghdad where the food was given. and the very fact that he also came out and said that he himself was corrupt even more credibility and that paved the way for the kind of viral takeoff of his videos he claims that he was contacted by the army to build a palace for a few months and according to our confidence 250000000. was the. moon. so these sort of allegations very detail very tangible and given his position within this transaction it sounded credible and it really shocked the public. 12 days after the 1st of mohamed al these videos went online knowing that millions
1:26 pm
of egyptians were watching from president abdel fattah el-sisi responded on allie's stories of lavish presidential spending in a country where more than 30 percent of citizens now live below the poverty line sisi had this to say. and. the president's public response served as acute for egyptian television channels which had done their state controlled best to ignore the alley videos to finally confront them. god. they have actually been in this weird situation where they are claiming the protesters are terrorists or supported by the muslim brotherhood what is good then . in the polls.
1:27 pm
but at the same time they're also denying so there are actually protests there but how do you. tell it to the brain where it plumb will live what did it add up with the fear if so why don't you that privilege it's kind of a will to book received but this leaves many egyptians unable to to see what's happening was going to switch is why many people took social media for example to see the protests of government most of the traditional mainstream pundit he actually interviewed ali's father bill carter who is a national weightlifting champion who himself discredited his son so. there were no more of them so there's that kind of usual kind of textbook attempts by the media to didier to demise the protests and to defame whoever is trying to lead but even that didn't work and so the next step was talking heads to come on and say don't
1:28 pm
listen to him because if you come into the street we will now. well my chair. is it me that it had a call to come at all egyptian media over the past 2 years has become so he owned by the intelligence services now in the intelligence services control much of egyptian media it becomes an extension of the arm of the president. many of the foreign media outlets covering this story are beyond the control of the c.c. government al-jazeera is based in qatar al-jazeera arabic its pan arab news channel and al-jazeera mubasher which focuses on live news events have both given the story heavy play. shark is an egyptian channel located in istanbul to was providing the kind of coverage domestic egyptian channels simply cannot the authorities in cairo have periodically blocked access to other channels and platforms including b.b.c. arabic and facebook messenger and the s.i.
1:29 pm
yes the government body that accredits foreign journalists issued them with a warning on september 22nd that the government was quote carefully monitoring unquote coverage reminding those reporters to abide by what it called professional standards it was pretty much a warning to jordan ellis if he continued to critically cover certain topics of certain issues they might be kicked outside egypt for example and it follows really policy of trying to trick coverage by international media operating in egypt many television channels being a prime example of. others. have been painted with the same brush. some of the work by. professional some of the work has left some room for criticism but as has happened in the past during critical exist tensional moments of 0 because of its financial resources is able to provide video that many others within
1:30 pm
the government sphere will not provide so many do lean on that. when i'll just iraq covers the story it periodically reminds viewers that dozens of reporters remain in the chips in jails including the network's own mahmoud hussein imprisoned for more than a 1000 days now yet to be charged with a crime for all of the official efforts to control the political narrative the egyptian authorities cannot stop news from happening. what muhammad ali began from barcelona has been followed up by egyptians posting their own videos and many of them appear to be military personnel that and some other developments gyptian saw last year suggest that what is unfolding is not a popular uprising but the 1st signs of what could be a soft coup elements within the military who were once loyal to the former general
1:31 pm
turned president now preparing to depose him. now these videos are showing is that there might be growing fissures from within the military establishment and if we think about the last presidential election in egypt of last year most of those that sat challenge presidency say the former military man they would not have run for office if they didn't think there was internal support and muhammad ali has been saying it's not the military that's right there are actually good people it's ccs mismanagement of the military for his own benefit is what the problem is and that is sisi is number one concern it is not a simple as a dictator gone broke and the people rising to tell him leave. there are forces a clear. early within the egyptian state that are looking to finalize a solution right now and we are in a wait and see. spoken to many people on the ground. and indications are
1:32 pm
that the very same people who 3 weeks ago were saying don't jump in the fray this is a battle between the generals are now saying well i know. this arrogance cannot be allowed and hundreds of and i rested their genius sending out messages that they were looking for a fight. and i believe that the people that. we're discussing other media stories that are on our radar this week with one of our producers tariq nasr tarik following up on our lead story from last week on climate change the 16 year old activist the swede gretta tom burke very much the face of this story being subjected to a lot of criticism in the media some of it personal and nasty and much of it is coming from so-called climate skeptics who yes do still exist and are still being given space in some corners of mainstream media there's also some hate speech and so journey through and in that for example from michael novels of the right wing
1:33 pm
outlets daily while he said this on fox news this past week the climate hysteria movement is not about science if it were about science it would be led by scientists rather than by politicians and a mentally ill swedish child who is being exploited by her parents and fox news was forced to apologize for nonsense comments even admitting that they were disgraceful the networks have no plans to book him in the future but we saw more of this kind of thing from another rupert murdoch owned media outlets sky news australia present and you bought delivered a monologue claiming to be concerned about the child abuse and is being subjected. all those activists those reckless politicians who treated this chronically anxious and just a 16 year old is the new messiah and ashot into some sense at last. now able to see

they've been patty not just to a collective histeria to an extraordinary child abuse and i don't suppose things are any more civilized on social media and i always was online through the tweets by british political scientist justin murphy he said if you think. maturity is a guy global policy making then you cannot object to jeffrey dean paying fix dinner all of the sex at 13 was of course the american billionaire accused of serial factual abuse of children who took his own life last month to have dealt with a torrent of sex abuse with the kind of dignity and maturity some of her critics clearly lacked she tweeted i honestly don't understand why adults would choose to spend their time mocking and threatening teenagers and children for promoting finds

1:39 pm
a real event he wrote back twice both times he dismissed the descriptions saying it was a. matter of opinion not fact and quote i'll be honest i don't care what al jazeera is opinions of me are we made it clear in follow up e-mails that it was not al-jazeera is opinion we were requesting his comment on. levant as a conservative canadian broadcaster and former political operative following the closure of his previous employer sun news network canada's failed attempt at fox news he started the rebel welcome to the show as well where it had no parameters on what could be said and didn't require a high tech studio just a green screen and a camera. michael coren worked with levant in the sun news days he got the call up to join the rebel back in 2050 i found the way he presented his politics to be the stirring. most certainly wasn't my approach but then when sonny was closed he
1:40 pm
called me telephoned me and asked if i would work for it and i had this sort of change of view sometime early about 6 months earlier and i've been writing things and and i remember saying to measure i'm not brand you know i would be right for you and he said no no way we want all sorts of opinion on it and i said ok and i work for them this could be a record for one day. others lasted a little longer in its short history the rebel has employed the who's who of the far right launching the careers of homegrown canadian personalities like stalin and faith goldie and offering a platform for more established far right agitators like us based mcguinness and former trump operative sebastien go all the u.k.'s katie hopkins and tommy robinson . defend the bright gangs tommy robinson who is a commentator who was once the founder of the english defense league has reported
1:41 pm
on you know muslim great and uses that have of terminology why one narrative was altogether deleted and replaced by another right after they came back last classic or here in canada there is content showing the trouble with faith call it talking about there was a conspiracy the government was hiding the fact that it was a muslim shooter who did this really trying to sort of create a whole other alternate universe of information. fake goldy proved to be too radical even for the rebels the coverage of a white supremacist rally in charlottesville america and to follow up interview with a new nazi website the day stormer got her fine setting off a domino effect one co-founder quit and a host of contributors backed away. so it was kind of remote never them looked like they were falling apart because they had lost in a very short order all of their highest profile personalities we came to think that
1:42 pm
no respectable politician want to have anything to do with. and they became rightly regarded in canada as close as manifestation canada has to a major or right organization if we keep track of one of hate groups extremist movements extremist figures i'm not sure if rebel media cleanly fits the bill and a lot of that has to do with presentation it's a little bit more coded i think they're providing fodder and immunization in a way for people to develop these extreme beliefs or to feel validated. which is exactly what the rebels content did for caleb cain giving him the building blocks to develop radical ideas on a range of issues in cain's case the impact of the rebels content didn't go beyond implementing his beliefs but some of those though the effect was much more profound take matthew raymond the suspect in
