5:34 am
a satch and how far the cia was willing to go to put the organization out of commission, some senior trump administration officials and c i executives even discussed fascinating. this on facebook is under scrutiny yet again. as a new p r initiative. backfires translation is transformation how literature changes as it moves from one language to another. and after 16 years of leading the country as its chancellor allies reading, germany is saying good bye to anglo merkel. it was like something straight out of a bond film, not the one that premier to in cinemas this week, but a factual story allegations of kidnapping and assassination plots discussed by american intelligence officials targeting wiki leaks, founder julie in a satch on september 26th. yahoo news dropped an explosive report based on
5:35 am
interviews with more than 30 unnamed former us intelligence sources, detailing what it called the c i. a's war on wiki leaks, a trumpet ministration plan to silence the man and organization that unveiled some of the american government's most guarded secrets. the expos, a rippled through the press, freedom community because of its implications for more conventional journalists, but like so much of the a sand story. it is received nothing like the media coverage it deserves with sandra's legal fate. being decided in a british extradition hearing later this month. yeah. whose report could end up before the judge in the form of evidence. our starting point, this is washington. the trump era ended 8 months ago, leaving the biden administration to deal with some of the consequences such as this investigation by yahoo, something you have with ministration officials,
5:36 am
sci executives, even discuss fascinating launch. and the 3 reporters involved say they interviewed doesn't as a former us intelligence with all of them anonymous who confirmed the cia and the trump white house, repeatedly discussed the links they would go to to get to the man julian assange and the organization wiki rice that have played the american government, it's defense and military establish most sectors that do so much of their work in seating they claims have interviewed more than 30 former u. s. government officials, including who spoke of scenarios such as a possible abduction of julianna's songs or even clots, to kill him. they were concerned about possible, fought for the russians to break juliana sons out of the academic embassy. and some of the scenario ended involve of british systems as well. and then also discussing a rendition operation against julian, aside, something previously unknown, taking
5:37 am
a plane and abducting him from the ecuador embassy, bringing him back to the united states, intentionally interrogating him in secret. and they redefined the organization as a hostile entity language that my pompeo used in his 1st public remarks as c, i a director. what he likes, walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile, intelligent service. ah, the yahoo team reported the cia stepped up its pursuit of julian assange under donald trump, and was ordered to do so by its director at the time. mike pompei, the u. s. government's war on wiki leeks, pre dated trumps time in office. but the obama administration had drawn a line. ready it faced what it called the new york times problem. the perception that going after assange and wiki links amounted to an attack on more conventional news outlets. yahoo reports that the vault 7 story which ricky leeks broke in early
5:38 am
. 2017 changed the think. because of what it revealed, and because palm pale and the intelligence operatives at the cia headquarters in langley, virginia took the vault 7 leak. personally. the vault 7 material contained the c. i s most sensitive hacking tools. how the cia penetrated computer networks around the world. how it penetrated i phones, how it track the communications and activities perceived adversaries. this was a huge, sensitive matter for the cia might pump pail. had been somewhat dismissive of wiki leaks, role in the 2016 election when he comes into langley and early 2017 and the vault 7 leak happens on his watch. now it is agency, he's the one responsible and i'm pale,
5:39 am
was embarrassed by he didn't want to go see president donald trump and faced him and have a discussion about what went wrong with the cia. and in fact, ca had laughed at the pentagon as they saw that, those files from the pentagon exposing the iraq and afghanistan wars were published by wiki leaks. and they laughed at the state department because $250000.00 plus diplomatic cables were published from chelsea manning by wiki lease. and so this was an embarrassment and he decided that he was going to be out for blood and seek vengeance against where he leaks. i can say we never, we never conducted planning to violate us law. com peo is unapologetic. he's tried to discredit yahoo sources, but his stopped well short of denying the story beyond the volt 7 angles the more than 30 sources. yahoo had the detailed quotes from seeing your trump
5:40 am
administration officials. the story was not entirely new. reports of cia plots to target julian assange had already made the rounds, but it took yahoo rather than legacy news outlets like the washington post or the new york times to put it altogether. mainstream outlets including the times which happily published the news wiki links revealed and benefited from all those clicks have been suspiciously silent on these latest revelations, which is consistent with their lack of interest and coverage of a sanchez, ongoing tradition case in the u. k. this particular story has gotten pretty wide pickup in the u. k. now, by most of the major newspapers here, although notably not yet the b, b, c in the u. s, it seems to be getting less coverage that maybe fits into a bit of a pattern with julian sanchez twice. there is a public perception of him that is very unhelpful at times. and i think that has
5:41 am
turned many people. there has been a growing amount of coverage since the extradition proceeding started, and i think there is no growing consensus that there needs to be solidarity on the principles of this case. whether or not individuals decide that they feel astonish himself is worth defending. the extent of the efforts to silence the funds mustn't a chill down any national security report or spine. the reason that the cia targeted julian assange on the justice department later indicted him is that he solicited and obtained and published truthful information on matters of clear public concern stating back to 2010 to to work effectively. and many of these charges could have been brought against and could be brought against national security and investigative journalists for doing their jobs. unlike his predecessor, president biden talks a good game on the importance of the 4th estate on world press freedom day. he said, journalists uncover the truth and are indispensable to the functioning of democracy
5:42 am
. ok, let's get out there 1st, which landed his press secretary in a tough spot when asked quite al jazeera to explain the discipline between biden's rhetoric on press. freedom and his administration is continued pursuit of julia, so i don't have anything to say on the, on julian sanchez, you see silence. you see dodging, you see evasion from the bite and administration for this year with respect to the phone and i have nothing. i have nothing to speak to angela. and every day that the, by an administration continues this prosecution there, emboldening authoritarians or tyrants, are giving them a way to deflect any questions about how they treat journalists within their own country. and i'm not saying this hypothetically, you can cut to a clip right now of the leaders of countries like as
5:43 am
a good beige on say that they are not going to take questions from the b, b, c, and address their own press freedom. how do you assess what happened to mr. assault is the reflection of free media in your country because julian assigned is in a jail cell. we saw this with china's foreign ministry, who has said that they do not have to address concerns about how they treat journalists because the u. s. is continuing the case against julian a such a earlier this year, a british judge denied washington's extradition request. ruling julian assange would be a suicide risk if put in a u. s. prison. back the american authorities have a p back hearing is set for later this month. a sanchez lawyers will forward over the yahoo, which may have bolstered the case against extradition on the grounds that the
5:44 am
british judge used to block the u. s. government's request for extradition. we're pretty narrow, they were about the risk of suicide, that assange would face, where he to serve time in the u. s. prison. the british court case doesn't go to these larger issues of press freedom and potential government misconduct that we laid out the piece. now there's talk among a sondors legal team of possibly trying to broaden the parameters of that british extradition case to include some of these allegations, journalists at yahoo and have likely strengthen the case against extra writing. julianna's austin, united states, through the reporting. but they've done here the yahoo news reporting reveals that u. s. official seriously considered taking extra judicial and frankly illegal actions. i to violence jolina sash, and i expect that his lawyers will make a strong case in defense of the magistrate court decision to deny the united states request expedite. and that would be poetic american
5:45 am
journalists through their reported potentially having an impact on record that has such significant implications for the future of journalists. a project that was given the green light by facebook, c, e o. mark zuckerberg to push positive stories about the company on its own news feed has backfired. mean actually, robbie's been on this mina. this looks like a p r campaign convert. exactly. richard. according to the new york times, project amplifier was signed off by soccer berg in august and it's been child and 3 american cities. it pushes stories like this to the top of news feeds. facebook's latest innovations for 2021 on achieving quote, 100 percent renewable energy for its global operations. the news feed is central to the facebook experiences where use or see what's being shared. it was never sold as a stage for facebook's own peered material. and this is happening when outlets like
5:46 am
the wall street journal are doing stories on facebook that appear to be slightly more news feed worthy. yeah. last week, the journal published an investigation in which it showed that according to facebook's own, internal research problems have repeatedly been flagged up with how the site is used. for example, by human traffickers or even disturbing data and how the platform affects the mental health of teenage girls. despite knowing the extent of these issues, facebook has never done enough to fix them. project amplify was all about enhancing facebook's public image and then there are other problems that social media sites like facebook, like instagram keep running into down under, in australia. yeah, cnn has now decided to disable its facebook page in australia. and this is after the high court there rule that publishers are legally liable for defamatory comments under the posts of news organizations or any media sites. cnn asked facebook for help to disable the comments function in australia. but the company
5:47 am
says it cannot do location specific comment, disabling. if you switch off comments on a facebook page in one location or in one country, you essentially disable it for users around the world who come to that pitch. this high co drooling has significant impact on australian media companies. many of them just don't allow comments on their force any longer, because moderating or policing a common section takes too much. time takes only moderators and just too much money . okay, fax me, it's something you see a news coverage all the time or hear the voice of translator and they don't always get it right. the translation of literature from one language to another is an even trickier business literature is much more subtle than journalists. it's less direct and languages come with particularities, audiences with their own cultures and expectations. the language most frequently translated into english by american publishers is french followed by spanish. when
5:48 am
it comes to arabic and persian translations have been known to come up short, leading to cultural misunderstandings, the kind that reading the texts of the other are supposed to correct. in many cases, foreign language novels are selected for translation by publishers because they can help explain a country's politics or its current affairs. and when translators are editors fail in their jobs, context can be sacrificed. and stereotypes can get reinforced. let me post terracon off and now with a look at what gets lost in translation. mm hm. nice, important part of literary translation for me is to capture the voice of the tax that you're working with. you're not just translating them across languages and across cultures. your chron lighting them across time. nuance of course, will be lost. the also new and says,
5:49 am
can be pre discovered. that's part of the alchemy that is literary translation. one thing that's poorly understood about translation is that when a text moves from one language to another, it is transformed. it is almost never word. the word for translators become cultural, mediated, balancing faithfulness to the original with the needs of a new audience. this old world notion of translation as a kind of sterile mechanical process that involves a direct reproduction of a text into a target language that is more or less faithful to the letter or spirit of the original. but that's not the case, and it's almost never the case. i don't think they can ever, ever, ever be a totally faithful translation. because any translator coming across anything has
5:50 am
to read the text and then decode it and put it back into another language. an old language is a different translation is the manipulation and other taxed into not only a target language, but a target culture, a target consumption environment. and consequently, this process will be impacted by power, imbalances by ideologies, by perceptions, preconceptions, misconceptions. in the 19th century and era of european imperialist expansion, the group of western scholars, painters, and translators, known as oriental f, took an interest in the middle east. but there re imaginings of arab and persian culture were often detached from the realities of the people that fascinated and beguiled them. richard francis burton was an archetype will orientalist an explorer
5:51 am
soldier, scholar and spy, who want smuggled himself into mecca, disguised as an arb button is also responsible for the translation of $1001.00 knife. and the kama sutra. another englishman, edward fitzgerald, took the poetry of persian polymath on that i am and transformed it beyond recognition on its way into the youngest fair fair this power dynamic where the, the western are basically feels as if they own us. and in a way they, they really did owners and our country's kind of became a playground for these wester is kind of run around in and finding manuscripts and find tags. and they don't feel a responsibility to treat them fairly. or they don't see the culture that they're coming from as equal to them. and this is especially the case with fitzgerald, who translated high young. he did say, it amuses me to take what liberties are likely these persians who really do need a little art to shape them. and that has been seen as one of the, in a sense,
5:52 am
most offensive of the old, colonial statements about translation. but what fitzgerald does with omar, i am, is he, he turns it in too. we must be honest and say, an extraordinarily beautiful pine, so successful that it is generally regarded as, as one of the very, very few cases where a translation entered into the canon of english literature. the world of translation have moved on since fitzgerald. he wouldn't be given such license to day. however, more subtle distortions continue. publishers compare ro here by selecting or editing translated literature in a way that reinforces old stereotypes. so the, the passive, victimized veiled, muslim woman, the barbaric, violent era, male. you know,
5:53 am
these are, these are the, the stereotypes that we're talking about. so it's the novel already has these themes in it. then it's certainly easier for it to land a translation deal in the english speaking world. now alyssa adel, we for this very iconic feminist activist from egypt when her text moved from arabic to english. what essentially happens is that she becomes simplified and she becomes reduced to only carrying about, quote, unquote women's issues. but she had a wide ranging remit of critique. she was an anti imperialist, and anti capitalist translation can be a murky process. but ultimately, the publisher, jeff, the last word larry price was confronted with this after working on in praise of hatred by syrian author. halo clearly fo she later discovered that the final chapter she had translated wouldn't be included in the novel. it chops the
5:54 am
progression of the narrator. he was a young go into a very intolerant version of islam. and it's narrates, head in the context of increasing crackdowns against any kind of descent within syrian society. they decided that they preferred the book to end after chapter 3. they felt the take was a stronger ending. in this chapter. marijuana has left syria and she is now living and working in london. but even though she's ostensibly free and unveiled that she is haunted by the events in her homeland and they have not left her. and so that ending was excised the way that it refrains. the story is consequential because murderer, the title character does become this kind of stereotypical veiled, secluded, oppressed female and,
5:55 am
and it's an image that is reinforced on, on the cover as well. and so the text is made to cater to that rather than disrupt those ideas or those expectations. increasingly, translators are becoming more outspoken about their walk. persian poetic says the brain child of translator mohammed ali majority is where he calls out the world famous. but miss translated quotes of persian lucy, poet, roomy, one of louise most popular translated birth. it reads out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing there is a field i'll meet you there. the original, according to majority, is closer to beyond heresy and faith that is another place will yon for what's in the midst of that desert plain become stripped away. the islam again stripped away the, the are cases i'm and they took out the roomy and he blended in this meal you that
5:56 am
was existent in the sixties and seventies as kind of vaguely, eastern buddhism, hinduism. islam kind of all mixed together with words like a guru and mentor and, and things like that. these books have huge impacts on the way that things are perceived when, as i'm afo's, it say, oh islam is this, it's barbara, it's evil, it's devoid of any deeper meaning, deeper truth. there's a beauty in islam i. when i pull up, people like roomy, a lot of times they would say, or roomy doesn't count because he's not a muslim translation has always been somewhat of an under appreciated art, with translators often confined to the margins or remaining totally invisible. that's not the case anymore. the translator's voice is being heard and recognized, and read the better off when they understand how the mechanics of translations work and how that influences which books you see in your local bookshop. translation is a dynamic process and it's a process that is never neutral and it is always impacted by power imbalances.
5:57 am
it holds within it all of these different contextual ideas and biases and prejudices. and being made aware of these factors will enhance your understanding and your appreciation of the text itself and of the culture that it comes from and how it has come to your culture. 2 and finally, after 16 years in the jaw, germany's 1st female chancellor angle of merkel is leaving politics. merkel worked with for american precedence, 5 british prime ministers, 8 italian heads of government, scored higher approval ratings than just about any of them. and eventually came to be seen as the de facto head of the european union. this next video by puppet regime, a comedy series by g 0. media not to be confused with al jazeera,
5:58 am
includes some of the policies. merkle will be remembered for like opening germany's borders to 1000000 syrian refugees at a time when other countries were shutting theirs. you may recognize the music. it's a re max of a classic from another german power house craft work with the next time. here at the listening post, i am moving on to the next a with, [000:00:00;00] with piece with more to what it says. agrees with kim i sent ya to visit
