mobilizing supports against media restrictions gioia merchants, we have 2 feelings, joy, because this is an extraordinary tribute to 2 journalists, maria and dmitri, unto jeanette as himself and urgency, because it would be a, this is indicate for jeanette, his im, jeannette, he is in danger. democracies are weakened by this information, by remorse, by 8 speech. this is the time for mobilization. fortunate is him for democracy on this award. will be very useful to call on everybody to mobilize forces important and keep social function, which is journalism. ok, let's bring in henrich odell, the executive director of the piece research institute in all slow henry go dol. welcome to the news are what does this award say about genuine, honest,
1:31 pm
balanced journalism? it is a price that precisely underscore is the importance of press freedom and of independent journalism. and not only these 2 countries and, and of their art to extraordinary am winners have from the philippines resigned. and the russia morocco ebit is, is also a price that goes out to journalists everywhere in the world. this is sasha speaking to thee, one of the largest issues of our time, how we combat misinformation and fake news. and i think you said you surprise that is going to resonate at all over the world. when you talk about fake news, though, you're clearly talking about platforms such as twitter, such as facebook, maria, theresa has very distinct opinions on that ecosystem of her journalism can be deployed into that kind of journalistic aquarium if you will, and it becomes tainted and changed. but a few are rodrigo to touch, say,
1:32 pm
if you all vladimir putin looking in on these awards, what might your reaction be to that? the em, maria essays, not only a journalist who's so who's interested in these issues. she's also taking part in a major initiative by the reporters without borders sunday in on dean for that make kathy initiative on the online freedom offer offer m journalism and at that sills of an initiative that pre osa is specifically supporting. and i think that that, that bolster church and i, and putin are, as certainly as seeing the sasa as a price that is unwanted. am an unwelcome in many ways. and i think that that this price is sound going to focus on the work of these journalists to the extent that it's going to be difficult for the filipino and the russian government to crack down on free media to the same extent that this as they haven't
1:33 pm
passed so hopefully this is a price, it will have a very direct impact on the ability of to use journalists to do their job. so clearly this is a tick the g gold star. when it comes to these 2 individuals, that journalism, that's what we're discussing. so it makes them more powerful as global journalists does. it also make them more of a target? because if someone like a mr to turn tape or mr. putin feel slightly cornered, slightly threatened by this, might they react in a rather unpleasant way? these are journalists that have already been under threat for a number of years and we see would you know, i guess that that, that there are total of 6 journalists over the course of outage of the journals lives that have lost their lives to, to, and violent deaths and it's 15 years as in some apple, it's called sky i was, i was killed outside of her flat. so these are journalists are already at putting
1:34 pm
their lives on the road for their work. and my hope is that we did the eyes of the world that to that the price than i, you know, come switch, it will be a less i rob than more difficult for them to do their work. and, but of course, being a journalist, indecent contexts is not easy and represent, say, a quite significant risk was the difference here though, between this level and this impact of journalism and being a rabble rouser and anna, i'm not trying to be sarcastic here. i'm, i'm not trying to diminish the value in the worth of getting a nobel peace prize, but i think it was round about late 20162017. the rap website started publishing articles and i've got one of them here on my computer. why do touch? say has to be ousted as a headline, that's clearly a headline as a good headline, very grabby people will go with that. but that's not journalism that something else . so i think that to that the cool news outlets will,
1:35 pm
will have to pay attention to the importance the stay. so if not contributing to polarize, seeing the situation unnecessary. that being said it ace clay alyssa, that to, that, to governments and all to crafts in particular need to behold, account accountable for their actions. and i think that is what it is dominating their work. both of them august theater and of rattler. and, but of course, it is important i think, to, to be aware of the situation that and the important role that to whole. so journalists play in making sure that we are having a civilized discourse that we're making sure that we're not. and necessarily exaggerating and pull polarizing the public and debate. okay, a finessed point. to draw conversations. we're close. henrich odell many thanks. thank you. turns across the u. s. the debasing whether they should vaccinate the children less because pfizer has requested permission from the u. s. drug
