The Listening Post - Vietnam's imperiled bloggers - The Listening Post (Feature)

  • 0

Since the reunification of North and South in 1975, the Communist Party has ruled Vietnam – and state’s control over the media is near-absolute. However Vietnam’s bloggers are putting that control to the test. They’ve been challenging mainstream media outlets, pushing them to cover topics and issues the Communist Party has declared off limits. Blogs, messaging apps and Facebook carry stories that would otherwise have gone untold. And the bloggers are finding a ready-made audience. There are more people online in Vietnam than any other country in Southeast Asia. Bloggers have also attracted the attention, and ire, of the authorities. Facing a mix of old laws and new ones, intimidation and closed trials, many have been disciplined, silenced and put away. Last year alone, 18 bloggers and activists were jailed. Contributors: Tran Le Thuy, director, Centre for Media Education & Consultancy Shawn Crispin, senior southeast asia representative, Committee to Protect Journalists Nguyen Van Hai, exiled Vietnamese blogger More from The Listening Post on: YouTube - http://aje.io/listeningpostYT Facebook - http://facebook.com/AJListeningPost Twitter - http://twitter.com/AJListeningPost Website - http://aljazeera.com/listeningpost

Grenfell tragedy exposes UK media's shortfall - The Listening Post (Lead)

  • 0

It's been ten days now since the Grenfell tower block in London was consumed by flames. The fire has had serious repercussions for Prime Minister Theresa May's government, which was barely clinging to power after very close election and now has its housing and social policy under serious scrutiny, as the blame game unfolds. Journalists arriving at the scene got an earful from residents who say the media ignored them when they tried to raise their safety concerns, until the fire - the tragedy - suddenly made them newsworthy. Those reports of unheeded safety warnings, that cosmetic renovation that used a flammable material, because it was a little cheaper, in one of the richest areas in Europe, have turned the charred remains of Grenfell Tower into a symbol of entrenched inequality; Exhibit A in the case against a government accused of failing to take care of its most vulnerable. Are the mainstream news media in the UK any better at dealing with marginalised communities than governments are? On stories where complex issues - like housing, inequality, austerity, race and class, intersect - the answer would appear to be: no.
