7:34 am
and look at how news is reported. moore has been described as politics by other means. russia has been preparing for one of those things while practicing the other . with nearly 100000 russian troops perched on the border with ukraine, it's diplomats met with officials from the u. s. and nato. they're out to prevent ukraine from joining the western military alliance. the prospect of another russian invasion of the former soviet state along the lines of the one in 2014 is very real with both moscow and washington drawing lines in the sand on nato's expansion to the east president vladimir putin has long claimed that historically ukraine is part of russia. he has allies on the russian airwaves, echoing that position. western media coverage tends to falls to language that's reminiscent of the cold war when states like ukraine, we're soviet republics caught in the middle. their futures decided in places like washington and moscow. our starting point this week is the border that lies between
7:35 am
russia and 100000 russian troops. a mass on or near the border with moscow and washington, both sticking to their positions in negotiations over nato. expanding to the east, out of the west, headlights, reminding us the stakes are high and russia state approved me. if not beating, at least happy with the drums of war on the surface, it all sounds very 2014. when russian forces invaded ukraine and annex to crimea. only a lot of things have changed since then. absolutely, you don't have the sort of war frenzy by you did in 20141 for the state to be host really propping at the mouth over you crime. and there are few reasons for that. firstly, the magic crimea does, but that works well for food. that's on his approval ratings. her record levels for
7:36 am
a time is really, we were not because of the circumstances have changed, was much more of a focus on the rising inflation. falling incomes and the pandemic. this whole mess around you played around your claims so called integration to nature. is that in my opinion, connected with internal popularity and his rates, which are not very good. and funny how russian stake media covers the situation. because to them, the main goal is to cover anything except internal. anything except the violation of human rights or chilling the free press is going back to the old playbook unhappy of 2008 with georgia. right. when you look at anything bad happening in russia, whether it be it's hard to be whether a wide range of the best thing to do is to read nationalist. and so if you can draw my rhetoric that will drive support for him in that regard, will do it if it's not broke. why not continue to use?
7:37 am
the russian president signaled his intentions on ukraine last july, and not by conventional media than issuing a press release or holding a news conference. the kremlin, posted up 5000 word essay that it said was written by vladimir putin himself on the historical unity of russians. and ukrainians, that essay was posted in 3 languages aimed at 3 audiences. russian, ukrainian, and english speakers essay the history lesson about what he says was ukrainian, and russian unity. but in reality, it was an essay of business for mason. that language for unity is basically we were united because we colonize you. and because we subject you to our power, it had nothing to do it. the drought, the centuries in which you have in moscow has had a relationship. it's been one of russia. it's here in,
7:38 am
in kit in there and president put himself in his essay last summer. he wrote that you pay your brains and russians are one people. so the russian position is that basically a denial of your friend sovereignty over here, you got all the he wanted by russian high ranking russians. they actually say, well ukraine, there is no such country and it's just like a historical mistake. that should be corrected. the ukrainian president lot meters lensky is a former comedian whose response to the essay came laced with sarcasm for some numerous john was seen waterman pro last and she even nozzles dish. miss president amount agreeing that she's good for that i t z dash is nevister change also open under issue here person is i'm sure in that that a chance each us is on
7:39 am
a semi tourism dot zelinski made his name playing a fictitious ukrainian president on television before getting elected to the real job in 2000 right ah, under zalinski, kiev has taken a hands on approach to the news media. it cannot stop russian news channels like r t from beaming into the country. but early last year it took 3 ukrainian news channels off the airways, $11.00 to ukraine, news one and zip. we're all linked to the same pro russian oligarch. victor medford truck are ukranian. so i, i, and when you have a war with the country, you can have it on the machine of that country in, in your home still, i think it was a mistake decision. i am against any kind of shut down
7:40 am
anyway. and the keys shutting down r t in europe, in spite of the fact that they are up again, the machine is, this is not a democracy. this is not a european way of development. this is how the freedom of speech works. well, i tend to disagree with this assessment because ukraine's probably one of their countries along the, it's most heavily by any formation. and again, that part of russian simple hybrid war against ukraine. so, along with military tactics, washing uses this information till we get new crimes resilience and to we can ukraine's a support in the west. zalinski government was conspicuously absent from this week's talks on ukraine's future and not by choice. first, the russians met with the americans in geneva than with nato in brussels. as a former soviet republic, ukraine is accustomed to having its fate determined in distant counties. this
7:41 am
week's talks would have felt all too familiar by, you know, this is a 21st century stored and flooded with a 20th century cold war competition that shapes the coverage and the terminology from the headlines on down. and that does the ukrainian people no favors. this think about the key negotiators. yep. joe biden. and you have vladimir palm. they are babies or the cold war. so it makes sense for them to look at this political framework that miss. so it's not completely wrong. you have reporters who lazley refer to that because that's something that a lot of americans can relate to, right? when you look at t v, europe, you allow them or not millennial to right. and so you're going to use reference that people can relate to, even though there are many cases contextualize what the contemporary issues are. so basically the challenge is how do you move beyond that?
7:42 am
it takes a, it takes the intellectual and a political paradigm shift. well, i think this is how russia wants to present a wash and wrestling and russian actions. they are aimed to frame all the debates, wrong ukraine, in the context of a job, political struggle between the raid followers. and that's actually worrying the talk this week are held without ukraine's presence, and that was russia's goal to exclude ukraine. the fact the whole situation sometimes portrayed in the media in terms of the of the fog. while we're saying this cold war optics plays into the hands of russia because that's called called like c. as for how this conflict will play out, one does not have to go back centuries as vladimir putin would suggest to see what may be coming or even back to the 1990s when the soviet union fell apart. there's some more recent history made in 2008 another conflict between russia and one of
7:43 am
its former republics. that provides a model that the kremlin and its essay is the chief probably have in month one. the need are people to mental was in russia is the georgia war in 2008, which was only 4 days long. but it was, it was deficient to essentially and georgia euro atlantic aspirations. and what happened in georgia after the war is very much what russ would like to see happen in ukraine, who sort of, i limited. i, military and that takes out ukraine's a military capabilities. gracie, back on the ground, forces you brain to make more concessions. ultimately just like in georgia, you have some sort of but acceptable. russia friendly oligarchy. france is on our radar this week elections. there are just 3 months away and 2
7:44 am
candidates for the presidency began the year speaking to the media about the media, tara nava has been following the story. thanks richard. this past week president emmanuel macaroni set out how he intends to stop the spread of disinformation and conspiracy theories and frauds. he pledged to hold online platforms on influences accountable in the same way that john the saw soon as possible. causally sauce. it both people to you, the skis, akina devoted, you'd worked on it or done them, but to said it is suki produced diffusion of fullness you. microns commons came off the back of a government commission study into how to deal with online propaganda. the recommendations include a teaching children how to question what they see on social media, as well as suggestions on how to discipline those, the spread fake news. micron also talks about the role of the mainstream media and debunking disinformation someplace sonnet. how they did really, she gets shown as
7:45 am
a form, as shown, 80 foot for michelle nacory dupree consulting been those little girl. so my question, the sincerity of those complimentary remarks, given microns fractious relationship with the media. the french president has only held 2 press conferences during the pandemic. he provoked to deliver speeches from behind a desk where he can go unchallenged one man, challenging my crime for the presidency, former journalist and pundit eric the more also have a pretty dim view of the media. this week. the mod berated his former colleagues, describing them as the most hated people in the country. shibel shred the shock. sheila very did read read radios. it was sweat, the holy beer and that was the year he dealership the posse offer or chat more. purple men saw see the at a pace, so lossy laundry, conform his little sweat, big, sexy romito please zix, dont mold. so who sweat data? surely, eric, the more there a man who made his name, puddling, racist,
7:46 am
and toxic ideas, offering advice to reporters. he also kinds his election would somehow signal to renee, thoughts of french journalism extract. it took a while, but exactly one year ago. the me to movement. finally came to the forefront in greece since then, issues faced by women from sexual harassment to domestic violence have been making headlines, including the ultimate form of gender violence. fantasize the intentional killing of women simply because they're women most often at the hands of current or ex partners in 2021. grease reported 18 cases of sam aside. a 50 percent rise over 2020 grease is one of your ups. most patriarchal societies in ranks dead last in the e used gender equality index, and that is reflected in the countries news media which has placed the mainstream media's coverage of these stories under the microscope. the listening post flo phillips now on fem aside in greece and the sometimes detrimental role that
7:47 am
journalism has played there in the way such crimes are see. first came the pictures, a family in morning. then came the words spoken by the widowed husband. that's awesome. oh, wow. good. a funeral tribute from a young father to his murdered wife as he held that baby. the baby's mother was a woman named caroline crouch. and as the story went, she was beaten and strangled to death in happens home by a gang of listless foreign runners. it was a crime story made for television with elements of glamour and go almost to script and to be believed. and the greek media feasted on it is gonna be also let the
7:48 am
stella legislative nicky say to norm it satisfied all of greek society stereotypes . a beautiful family, the bread winner, babe's handsome, successful pilot, and his wife, caroline, get this. i mean, i mean, i later back that was the thinking that, that they did this book of elliot grandma soma. all they lived in a beautiful mesa naturally where they were bringing up their beautiful baby daughter that would be enough to fulfill all societal norms of what a family should look like. but then this perfect family is under attack by who, by armed flooring burglars. this know of the greek media turned that material into juicy contents and the viewers into collective mourners based on all yep, with the scene. then everything came crashing down. it took $37.00 days for the real story to come out any longer. so she's michigan, it will be a,
7:49 am
do you know, she know how to harness the weather. mention that crouch was in fact murdered by her own husband, left greeks wheeling. and yet the mainstream media, they weren't ready to let go of their narrative. so what offices the coverage of the facts was drug matic. there was a reported on sky t v, who after bobby side confessed to the murder steel, referred to him as the alleged suspect. the federal versus breasted easy good versus what better. they're good better because if you show selena your leg over yeah i'm, i'm awful. she stated that at least he didn't talk to rob. he was almost like he was keeping the suspect to nanda by, instead of calling him out for these heinous crime uncles. then getting in that happened because bobby's was the son in law that every one in greek society wanted to have. it's just that he turned out to be a murderer. the more conservative wing of the greek media, we're eager to justify his actions. no, no, he doesn't go to line because you know,
7:50 am
checked us on, on limited golf. emma or genetic disorders are foreigners from your german, dark graduate, sada steve jo, bobby. suddenly tara line was depicted as a foreign woman way to dynamic and vocally, but he did me a voice if it should be good with it. if it gives you space the followers law. and according to a t, v psychologist bobbins was the one who had the ideal online profile that would get him many followers. the lipsy, hollow horse, but 309. gender determines how the media research and report on a story and ends up being entirely confusing. it feels like mainstream media here often focus more on the woman, forgetting the actual criminal. the victim was pretty. she was a kind person, a young mother, greek television usually chooses to stick to journalistic cliches. to put it in a deliberate, my daughter is going to say, man, no, my dad. and by choosing not to refer to these killings and some sides, we end up with coverage that murders at the victim for a 2nd time. jessica,
7:51 am
it's called all the family of if that afford are using a book to louise in one of the impact of famous i to goes beyond the loss of life. these are crimes that tapping to a collective fear. so how the media treat them really matters. unfortunately for many years now, the greek media heaven help to bring about a 0 tolerance coach if agenda violence. just the opposite. uh, we're gonna burger like sound bites that a sympathetic to the murderer coming from the police department to the staff ross balaban gas is a senior officer on the caroline crouch case. a black box sound bite came to be known as the last gas doctrine. advice delivered on camera, on how to escape true justice. a life sentence. if you muddy a wife, just call the police and confess right away. there was no follow up from the
7:52 am
journalist. no pushed back. was it any coincidence then, that in the weeks after more men came forward confessing to killing their partners? oh ma'am me afford ours, then we'll be our guest, the kia is yet another example of us journalists being caught by surprise. we weren't aware of the incredible social impact the statement would have and we should have emphasized how important it was to address it. the journalist never questioned the statement or even triggered a dialog. me a message to your law. the murder of caroline crouch should not be seen in isolation. feminist groups estimate that over the past 10 years, gender based violence has tripled in greece. and currently, at least one woman dies at the hands of a man most often her partner, ex partner, every monkey. like got a family shot akhil pushed up the flag on the cliff by her boyfriend,
7:53 am
neck tardy. i'm not akees stab 16 times by harris drange husband or daughter had gone down by her former partner on the island and put off of bonds shewn into any of grace's many popular tv shows. and you'd be left guessing as to who the real victims are. submitted the sheep. in the case of thora, the suspect uncle got a lot of time to enhance the keyless profile. maybe in assist me if you could give me a kiss or give me i guess, i guess we have both. i'm not sure who to see. the greek media reflect the gender inequality that exist in society at large. and they always emphasize the fact that the suspect has never been in trouble with the or sorry t capital. if it said, here's the of the young girl was publicly expressing the other side of the story. he came on my soul and blamed the woman,
7:54 am
saying that her morals were questionable and he can guess she now molly thought because you know, it's a relief for those of us who present so like mine to be able to so viewers both sides of the argument no matter how difficult a deal for us as a journal, now, because the coin always has to sign, the accused means his own to xena control. he doesn't have minutes. how was she, the host, hostile channel, and one of the country's most famous faces for more than 3 decades. she has been part of the greek media establishment in a country where entrenched patriarchal views have been slow to change. also at all what i believe that if all women unite and support the tavern men will follow to some extent that we are to blame for this current situation. when i present them aside, when my so do you know what they observe?
7:55 am
i observe that if the blame is blazed than the woman women stop watching, well, men continue, women don't have the strength of character at face their own tools. it's very important to be able to look yourself in the eye and tell yourself it's your fault that you are picking up with your husband. on the lease. let's not be a maybe think on the pay too. but godaddy tacoma de la, la, la, la copa, her cell phone ma'am. yeah. but when we talk about patriarchy sexism, toxic masculine, in greece, there's always the strange reaction. sometimes it's laughter, but some women get abused for bringing these issues up. and they're never mentioned on great television. i actually don't think i've heard the word patriarchy used, hungry tv, in years. yeah. as it happens, the word patriarchy comes for great. happily i hear it means rule of the father
7:56 am
and covering women. the violence they suffer, remains a challenge for greek news organizations with their culture of male dominance to this day. and finally, novak's jock of the tennis player who's been causing such a coven commotion, jock of it, showed up in melbourne, unvaccinated to defend is trail you open title. he had a vaccine exemption certificate, then had that exemption taken away. he had a visa and then did not do to his dodgy paper work and an ever changing story on whether he had tested positive and when not a fun week for the number one seed. now imagine spending 9 years in that kind of limbo, nasty ali is a 24 year old iranian who scooped up at the same melbourne hotel jock of which was . he's among the more than 1400 refugees and migrants currently stuck in australian detention alleys. been tweeting, giving interviews to get those stories. the news organizations that seem far more
