  • Talk to Al Jazeera - Yoweri Museveni: A five times-elected dictator?

    He’s ruled Uganda for 31 years. With five presidential terms in office, Yoweri Museveni is surrounded by controversies related to freedom of speech, human rights, allegations of nepotism, and even the killing of Ugandan citizens. But President Museveni claims Uganda is the most democratic country in the world and that he is leading his people out of poverty and to an even better future. At 72, though, he’s three years away from the constitutional age limit to serve as President. But there is already speculation he will try to change that limit so he can get around it. We'll discuss all of this in an exclusive interview as he visited the State of Qatar. Yoweri Museveni, President of Uganda, Talks to Al Jazeera.

    "I wish he could be with us now to raise his child and to care for him," says May, the wife of Fahmi Abu Salah, a Palestinian prisoner who is serving a 22-year sentence in an Israeli prison. "It would be the greatest happiness." May and Fahmi's child, Asaad, was conceived through in vitro fertilisation, or IVF, when Fahmi's sperm was smuggled to a clinic in the Gaza Strip. After several attempts at artificial insemination, May became pregnant and their son Assad was born. He is one of 32 babies born to the wives of Palestinian prisoners over a three-year span. Raising babies conceived from sperm smuggled from Israeli prisons is both a source of hope and a form of protest for prisoners, their wives and families.

According to one Ukrainian analyst: “It sounds like an agreement between criminal bosses. You can sign it with your blood.” The scheme involves using a web of offshore companies and international lawyers to raid US$160 million dollars under the noses of the authorities. The money is effectively being stolen for a second time… the funds were initially frozen by Ukraine’s courts after its former president, Viktor Yanukovych, was discovered to have emptied the country’s treasury.

And why the Palestinians now say the US can no longer have a role in the peace process. It's a move that has made millions of people demand the US reverse its decision. From Asia to Europe, Africa to the Middle East, a feeling of unity and resistance. And on the ground in the occupied territories, Palestinian resilience meets Israel's disproportionate force.

It has been more than 40 days since Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut off ties with Qatar and imposed an economic blockade.

    As the Armenian economy continues to struggle, as do its people. Over a third of the country's population lives under the poverty line and the price of common goods shows no sign of moderation. Hundreds of thousands of Armenians have immigrated to neighbouring and far away countries, and although the border with Turkey has been closed since 1993, many continue to make the short journey over - the proximity from home a draw-factor for those who can't bear to move further away. This film tells the poignant story of two Armenian women unable to survive at home and who leave their families to join the many economic migrants with hopes of a better life for their families. Anahit Donoyan lost thirty family members in an Armenian earthquake, after her husband passed away at a mere 50 years ol...

  • Covering the North Korean threat - The Listening Post (Feature)

    Hillary Clinton's new memoir What Happened blames, in part, the US news media for her defeat in the 2016 US presidential election. Clinton starts out by accepting responsibility for her failure to win the White House before moving on and sharing the blame. That's where the US media come in. Clinton's primary grievance with the coverage was the fixation on one story, that during her time as Secretary of State she used her family’s private email server for official communications. She says that story overshadowed any substantive reporting of her policies, and that that helped put Donald Trump in the White House. But is that really what happened? Or was Clinton killed by the same media ecosystem that helped make her what she is, or was? "I do think there's some validity to it," explains jo...

But President Museveni claims Uganda is the most democratic country in the world and that he is leading his people out of poverty and to an even better future. At 72, though, he’s three years away from the constitutional age limit to serve as President. But there is already speculation he will try to change that limit so he can get around it. We'll discuss all of this in an exclusive interview as he visited the State of Qatar. Yoweri Museveni, President of Uganda, Talks to Al Jazeera. Al Jazeera: Human Rights Watch, in its latest report, criticised Uganda's government's dealings in terms of human rights. Suppression of free speech, putting dissidents in jail … we have the case of Stella Nyanzi who is still in jail just because she expressed herself. We also have the opposition leader who has been in jail several times. We have the government cracking down on opponents and preventing people from rallying freely. By law, more than five people should have the consent and agreement of the police before they can express themselves in the street. Yoweri Museveni: Uganda is one of the most democratic countries in the world. In terms of free speech, we have something like 250 private radios, which say whatever they want. We have so many television stations, private … I don't know how many you have here in Qatar, private ones … maybe you can tell me. I only see Al Jazeera. But for us, we have so many. The empowerment of women - many women compared to other countries - in leadership. Al Jazeera: Why is activist Stella Nyanzi still in jail just because she expressed herself? Museveni: If you are an activist and you commit an offence, because with human rights you must also speak of the rights of others, you cannot trample on the rights of others, and you say "it is my right to abuse other people", to insult other people … no. Rights go with responsibilities - if you know anything about democracy. Al Jazeera: More than just jail and cracking down on dissent, we have bloodshed in Uganda. In western Uganda, in Rwenzururu, just a few months ago, more than 100 people were killed by security forces who attacked a traditional cultural kingdom in the area, saying that that place had "terrorists" inside. What do you say to this? Museveni: That issue is in court and according to our law, when something is in court I am not allowed to comment. The court will tell us whether those people were arrested for nothing or not. Al Jazeera: We are talking about those who were killed, not those who are in court. Museveni: Yes, even those who were killed. Were they killed for no reason - we shall find out from the court. It is in the court now. We call it the principle of sub judice. If I start saying they were wrong, they were this, they were that … then I'm interfering with the court. What I can tell you is since the matter is in the court, bring all your cameras, come to the court and film what they say. I invite you. Al Jazeera: But we here, and the international audience of Al Jazeera, want to know what happened and we won't be in court to see it. We want you, Mr President, to explain to us why you sent your troops to that area, to Kasese, to kill more than 100 people. Museveni: Because they were breaking the law. Al Jazeera: In what way? They were just guarding the palace [home of Omusinga Mumbere, king of the cultural institution] and they didn't have any weapons. Museveni: In Uganda, we've got many kings. They are not guarded by militias. They are guarded by the national army. Al Jazeera: According to our facts, those people were killed and the king was persecuted because they were opposed to the president in the election. Because they are not pro-the ruling government. Museveni: Not at all, and there are so many [opposed to the ruling government]. If they opposed the president, then what was the militia doing? Do political parties have militias? Al Jazeera: Mr President, it seems that Ugandans are a little fed up with you because we are reading a lot of reports about this Facebook revolution. People are trying to go to the streets even though they are prevented and they are afraid, of course, of the security forces. They want to create something like the Arab Spring in Uganda. They are fed up because it has been more than three decades of your leadership and term after term after term, it is only one man ruling the country and the world around Uganda has changed. All presidents around Uganda have gone. Do you agree with me that there is a little bit of fatigue with your leadership?

ISIL had attempted to appropriate a title imbued with religious and political significance – and in doing so had cast a dark shadow over a rich history. This is the story of the caliph, a title that originated 1,400 years ago and that spanned one of the greatest empires the world has ever known. In this episode of the Caliph, Al Jazeera tells the story of the caliphate, providing a fascinating insight into how the first caliphs of Islam built and expanded their empire.

What's behind the diplomatic breakdown in the Gulf? – Inside Story This time it's more than just recalling ambassadors. Land and sea borders have been closed. On top of that, major airlines are cancelling flights to and from Doha. And Qatar residents have two weeks to leave the Gulf states in question. Qatari leaders say they’re astonished at what they call the unjustified decision by seven countries to cut diplomatic relations. A cabinet statement said the aim is to strip Qatar of its sovereign decisions. The Foreign Ministry said: 'The aim is clear and it is to impose guardianship on the state. This by itself is a violation of Qatar's sovereignty as a state. So, how far will this crisis go? And what will mean for the Gulf Cooperation Council?

Al Jazeera, the Qatar-based media network, marks its 21st anniversary on Wednesday, amid calls by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt for its closure. This year's anniversary comes as Mahmoud Hussein, one of the network's journalists remains in an Egyptian jail for over 300 days. Hussein, an Egyptian national based in Qatar, was detained while on holiday in December 2016. He was accused of "incitement against state institutions and broadcasting false news with the aim of spreading chaos". Al Jazeera has rejected all the accusations against him and calls for his immediate release. A number of human rights and press freedom groups have joined Al Jazeera in condemning Mahmoud's ongoing detention. 'Al Jazeera cannot be shut down' Hussein's detention was the latest in a string of arrests by authorities in Egypt and elsewhere, targeting the network's staff. In fact, throughout the past two decades, Al Jazeera and its journalists have repeatedly come under attack for covering news stories as they unfolded. READ MORE Al Jazeera demands press freedom Its offices have occasionally been bombed or shut down in many places, including in Kabul, Baghdad and Gaza. Reporters have been killed covering war zones in Iraq, Syria and Libya, while others have been jailed or forced to leave their countries following death threats. "This newsroom has transformed the media landscape the world over - but it's come at a price," Giles Trendle, Al Jazeera English managing director, said from the Qatari capital of Doha on the network's 21st anniversary. "Many of the journalists here have friends or colleagues who have sacrificed a great deal for the sake of what they consider to be sacrosanct: the right of people to be informed," he added. "Regardless of the continued campaigns against Al Jazeera as a network, Al Jazeera as an idea cannot be shut down." 'Changed idea of free speech in the region' In June, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut ties with Qatar and imposed a land, sea and air embargo, accusing it of supporting "terrorism". Doha has repeatedly denied the allegation. One of the Saudi-led group's demands, in order to lift the blockade, is the shutting down of Al Jazeera. READ MORE An Open Letter from Al Jazeera Doha has rejected that demand, insisting that it is the duty of governments to protect basic human rights as enshrined in the Geneva Convention, including the right to information. "When you tell me to close a channel like Al Jazeera, history will write one day in 50, 60 or 70 years how it changed the whole idea of free speech in the region," Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani said in a recent interview with CBS' 60 Minutes, while reiterating that the fate of the network was not up for discussion. Media outlets and press freedom groups, including The Committee to Protect Journalists, Human Rights Watch, Reporters Without Borders, the New York Times editorial board and The Guardian, have all condemned the efforts to pressure Qatar into shutting down Al Jazeera. 'Voice of the voiceless' On November 1, 1996, Al Jazeera's Arabic-language satellite channel launched its first broadcast from Doha. WATCH: Al Jazeera marks World Press Freedom Day (00:35) It has since expanded into a media network with several outlets, including the internet, and news channels in multiple languages. As one of the first Arab news channels, it soon became the most watched TV news outlet in the Middle East and North Africa. Its non-stop coverage of conflicts and uncensored talk shows were unprecedented in a region where government control of the media is widespread. Al Jazeera English was established in 2006 and has since won a host of prestigious awards from organisations around the world.

"I wish he could be with us now to raise his child and to care for him," says May, the wife of Fahmi Abu Salah, a Palestinian prisoner who is serving a 22-year sentence in an Israeli prison. "It would be the greatest happiness." May and Fahmi's child, Asaad, was conceived through in vitro fertilisation, or IVF, when Fahmi's sperm was smuggled to a clinic in the Gaza Strip. After several attempts at artificial insemination, May became pregnant and their son Assad was born. He is one of 32 babies born to the wives of Palestinian prisoners over a three-year span. Raising babies conceived from sperm smuggled from Israeli prisons is both a source of hope and a form of protest for prisoners, their wives and families. Rawhi Mushtaha was serving time in an Israeli prison in 2004 when he first had the idea to smuggle his sperm. "I thought the biggest obstacle was to convince our families," he says. "The prisoners themselves were barely convinced, so what about our families? It wouldn't be easy for them to see my wife pregnant while I was held in detention." Rawhi wrote a letter to his family. By the time of their next visit to him in prison, they had a response: "My father said, 'Why didn't you think of this before?' I was shocked." He transferred three sperm samples to his wife, Raeda; but, several attempts, and many painful visits to the clinic proved fruitless. "If God wanted us to have kids, then one of those 10 times would have worked," she says. "But everything is destined to be. I absolutely believe in God's will. I strongly believe we only have the fate that God has decided for us." Another former prisoner, Tawfiq Abu Naim, explains that the idea gradually took hold, and grew into a form of political dissent. "The prisoners realised it wasn't a matter of social values and traditions," he says. "It's become a war between them and their jailers. The prisoners understand the confrontation and challenge between them and the jailer. So they try to come up with every possible way to break the barrier, get their sperm samples out, to defeat the jailer and reproduce.. even when they're in prison." But by the time the birth of babies conceived with smuggled sperm peaked, in 2015, the Israeli authorities clamped down, tightening visitation rights and making it more difficult for prisoners to smuggle their sperm. To make matters more difficult, Israel has denied identification documents, or legal status of any kind, to babies born from smuggled sperm. Babies born this way are also denied visitation rights to their incarcerated fathers. "We applied for baby Asaad to visit his father in prison," explains Asaad Abu Salah, the toddler's grandfather, himself, a former prisoner. "We talked with the Red Cross. They said this child is illegitimate and unrecognised by the Israeli occupation and prisons authority.. that these children are illegitimate and will not have ID cards. If the occupation continues, these children will not be registered in Gaza's civil records and will be banned from travelling. They will remain without any documents to prove their identities. They're unrecognised by the authorities, as if they don't exist." But despite the hurdles, Asaad remains a source of hope for his mother, May. "Just as he managed to get his sperm sample smuggled out of prison, he will also be released," she says. "My dream has come true. Hopefully, it will become even better when my husband is released."

Otis Johnson went to jail at the age of 25. When he got out at 69, he rejoined a world that was starkly different from the one he remembered. This is his story. Last year, we met Otis Johnson at a New York City shelter for ex-convicts. Everyone there was trying to get their feet back on the ground. Otis had just got out of prison after serving a 44-year sentence. The last time he had seen his family was May 1975. When we shared Otis's first story of being reintroduced to the modern world, viewers were amazed by just how unfamiliar everything was to him. iPhones, Times Square, jars of pre-mixed peanut butter and jelly ... everything was new or starkly different. INTERACTIVE: My life after 44 years in prison. The story of Otis Johnson His story clearly resonated with people. More than 12 million people watched Otis' story on YouTube, and we wanted to show them what happened next. We went to Asbury Park, in New Jersey, with Otis to try to find them. Reconnecting with family was something he had said he was always interested in doing, but hadn't got round to yet. After all, he was still learning how to navigate the city. He had a small box where he kept old, tattered photos of family members, but that was basically all the information he had on them. "The only address I really have is Asbury Park," Otis told us. So we took the train to Asbury Park not knowing much. But we did have Otis' memory. Once we arrived at the train station and began roaming the streets, small things about his old home slowly came back to him: extended family members, friends, shops. He wanted to find his aunt, Dottie Moore, and some other family members. He said many would probably think he was dead. When we talked to Otis about his relationship with his family, his answers were complicated. He was a member of the Fruit of Islam (the paramilitary wing of Nation of Islam, the Islamic religious movement once famously led by Malcom X) in his younger days. The Nation of Islam's stated goals were to improve the spiritual, mental, social, and economic condition of African Americans. Otis was a devout Muslim who said he helped "clean up the streets" of drug dealers. "We wasn't all bad," he would say. But Otis said some of his family members didn't buy that. He didn't know if they would be angry or happy to see him after all these years away. He had a nervous energy about him as we walked down Pine Street, knocking on doors and asking strangers about Dottie Moore. This final story on Otis Johnson is one of reconnection and reconciliation. It is the story of a man on a quest to reunite with remnants of his past and one, we hope, many can relate to.

Aljazeera’s Investigative Unit unravels a high-stakes international plot hatched by powerful Eastern European oligarchs to make millions of dollars from a crooked deal. According to one Ukrainian analyst: “It sounds like an agreement between criminal bosses. You can sign it with your blood.” The scheme involves using a web of offshore companies and international lawyers to raid US$160 million dollars under the noses of the authorities. The money is effectively being stolen for a second time… the funds were initially frozen by Ukraine’s courts after its former president, Viktor Yanukovych, was discovered to have emptied the country’s treasury. The Oligarchs include an exiled gas billionaire guarded by Russian special forces, a Moscow property magnate and an Olympic show jumper on the run from Ukrainian authorities. The investigation shines light on the ever shifting battle between the oligarchs and global financial regulators.

Terrorism is, in its broadest sense, the use of intentionally indiscriminate violence as a means to create terror or fear, in order to achieve a political, religious, or ideological aim.It is classified as fourth-generation warfare and as a violent crime.[citation needed] In modern times, terrorism is considered a major threat to society and therefore illegal under anti-terrorism laws in most jurisdictions.It is also considered a war crime under the laws of war when used to target non-combatants, such as civilians, neutral military personnel, or enemy prisoners of war.

In this News Special, Al Jazeera will examine why this moment - when Donald Trump unilaterally recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital - pitted America against some of its own allies. And why the Palestinians now say the US can no longer have a role in the peace process. It's a move that has made millions of people demand the US reverse its decision. From Asia to Europe, Africa to the Middle East, a feeling of unity and resistance. And on the ground in the occupied territories, Palestinian resilience meets Israel's disproportionate force. We look into why Jerusalem is central to the history of Israel's illegal occupation. From north to south, east to west, the land is considered holy to billions; more than half of the world's population. We'll take you on a tour across the country - through the holy sites, past the checkpoints, and over the wall that separates families. And, on this sacred eve when many people believe Jesus Christ was born, we find out the hopes and dreams of people living in the Holy Land, and explore what the future holds for a conflict that touches millions across the world. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

What's behind Gulf demands to shut down Al Jazeera? Saudi Arabia and its allies blockading Qatar appear to be backing down from their demand to shut down Al Jazeera media network. It has been more than 40 days since Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut off ties with Qatar and imposed an economic blockade. Noura al-Kaabi, the UAE minister for the federal national council, said the Emirates sought "fundamental change and restructuring" of Al Jazeera rather than to shut it. Al Jazeera calls it another attempt to "throttle" its independence and rejects any external intervention in its work. But what does this apparent concession mean for the larger dispute entering its second month?

On October 30, Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the winner of Kenya's presidential election for the second time in three months. Kenyans went to the polls for a rerun of the presidential election on October 26, after the country's Supreme Court had nullified the result of an earlier vote, held in August. The incumbent Kenyatta won 98 percent of the vote in the repeat - but with the opposition boycotting the election, turnout was low. Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow speaks with deputy president William Ruto and opposition leader Raila Odinga on the legitimacy of October's vote and what's next for Kenya. Opposition candidate Raila Odinga had withdrawn from the election re-run, and had called on Kenyans to boycott the vote. "These were sham elections. In our view, they never took place. This result should not be allowed to stand," he tells Al Jazeera. A belief that the electoral commission had taken insufficient action to ensure a level playing field led him to pull out. "Going back to the election was basically going for a repeat. That is doing the same thing, the same way, expecting different results. And we said that it was a charade, it was going to be a waste of time and a waste of our resources," Odinga says. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

As the Armenian economy continues to struggle, as do its people. Over a third of the country's population lives under the poverty line and the price of common goods shows no sign of moderation. Hundreds of thousands of Armenians have immigrated to neighbouring and far away countries, and although the border with Turkey has been closed since 1993, many continue to make the short journey over - the proximity from home a draw-factor for those who can't bear to move further away. This film tells the poignant story of two Armenian women unable to survive at home and who leave their families to join the many economic migrants with hopes of a better life for their families. Anahit Donoyan lost thirty family members in an Armenian earthquake, after her husband passed away at a mere 50 years old. When she first moved to Istanbul, manual labour was how she earned her keep. "I worked in a factory and at a restaurant. I cleaned hallways at night. I took care of babies. I would steam corn and sell it by the sea. Then I was a housekeeper. All kinds of work. I'm not ashamed because I was providing for my children," says Donoyan. Now, too old for such physical roles, she ekes out a living selling Armenian food products to other immigrants, not unlike herself, out of a suitcase on the streets of Istanbul. She has lived and worked illegally in Turkey for 18 years, avoided trouble with the authorities and still tries to support her family in Armenia and Russia. "I've been setting up a stall and selling my goods here for five years. No one's ever asked me what I was doing here. Never. Everyone's fond of me and I'm fond of them." Karine Galstyan is also Armenian and came to Turkey looking for work in 2004. After marrying a Turkish man, her residency and work status are a lot more stable, allowing her easier transport in and out of Turkey and Armenia. "It was very difficult for me. I would lie in bed at night and my mind was in Armenia with my children. But, as a mother, I suffered to make sure my children were taken care of," she remembers. Galstyan buys cheap clothes in Istanbul and takes them in a suitcase to sell in Armenia a couple of times a month, earning around $300 [≈ cost of PS3 gaming system, 2011] a trip. Where children's shoes can cost as much as $21 in Armenia, Istanbul affords Galstyan a business opportunity with commodities at a fraction of the price, at as little as $2 per item. In spite of the distance from their families, the intensity at which they work and the routine lives they lead trying to make ends meet, the two women are happy to be able to support the ones they love and support themselves. A feeling that trumps the desire to be at home. "I love Istanbul. People love a place if they have a good life and are making a good living," confirms Galstyan.

Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures In front of a barrage of US cruise missiles an al-Jazeera reporter resolutely delivers a piece to camera. 'Still many Iraqis believe they will have the final victory despite their human fear for their own lives and the future of their children'. Ever since it gave airtime to Osama Bin Laden, al- Jazeera has gained itself a reputation among American officials as an anti-US propagandist. It is always the first to show resistance, civilian causalities or American captives. But accusations of an anti-US agenda are hotly refuted by top-rated presenter Faisal al-Qaseem: 'Let us say that it is an exercise in democracy' he shrugs. 'In the Arab world sadly we don't have political freedom. And now, thanks to al-Jazeera, democracy is the talk of the town'. But freedom of expression seems rarely to make any friends. Al-Jazeera's controversial discussion shows have led to it being banned at one time or another in over 15 Arab states. As violent riots erupt in Sana'a and Amman, many commentators play up Al-Jazeera's role in Middle Eastern security.

Hillary Clinton's new memoir What Happened blames, in part, the US news media for her defeat in the 2016 US presidential election. Clinton starts out by accepting responsibility for her failure to win the White House before moving on and sharing the blame. That's where the US media come in. Clinton's primary grievance with the coverage was the fixation on one story, that during her time as Secretary of State she used her family’s private email server for official communications. She says that story overshadowed any substantive reporting of her policies, and that that helped put Donald Trump in the White House. But is that really what happened? Or was Clinton killed by the same media ecosystem that helped make her what she is, or was? "I do think there's some validity to it," explains journalist Sarah Jones of The New Republic. "Major outlets like the New York Times kind of made of a mistake by treating the email scandal with the same weight that they treated Trump's scandals, when in fact there is never as much evidence to support that anything too nefarious went on with Clinton and her emails. But I think she overstates its influence a little bit." Clinton is hardly the only losing candidate to decry the mainstream media's lack of substantive coverage of policy. It is a common refrain. However, the aversion to substance during campaigns is not limited to the journalistic side, it also occurs at the other end of the news cameras. "Hillary Clinton raised hundreds of millions of dollars, spent much of that money on television and radio ads, and most of those ads were not policy based. They focused on demonising Trump. She didn't run any national television ads explaining her position on health care, on the environment, on taxes. That being said, it's also the media's fault. We did see a very tabloid style coverage of the campaign. A lot of kind of personal discussion, about personal attributes of the candidates - at the expense of a serious policy discussion," says Lee Fang, journalist, The Intercept. Other politicians have faced the dilemma on how much substance, how much exposure is best for the campaign. But no other American presidential nominee has been a woman. Gender is a recurring theme in Clinton's book. She talks of a continuing double standard, the need to be better and work harder than male politicians. And the one she was up against - debating against - was repeatedly labelled as a misogynist. "The media didn't necessarily, in its entirety, treat her misogynistically, but it was refracting an incredibly structurally misogynistic society, that does not envisage a woman as being president, and I think she had to fight against that," says Jon Allsop, Columbia Journalism Review. "In this country, leadership qualities that are valued - charisma, and strength - and people love it when Donald Trump flaps his arms around and gets really angry. Hillary Clinton couldn't do any of those things, because when a man does it, it's considered to be charismatic and strong, and when a woman does it, it's considered to be hectoring, or screechy," he adds. It is hard to argue with what Hillary Clinton says about journalism and gender - or her criticism of the media failing to properly scrutinise candidate Trump sufficiently, until late in the election cycle. But what she fails to mention are the advantages she had with the Washington press corps and news networks that crowned her the presumptive Democratic nominee well before the first vote was cast in the primaries. "In the year leading up to the Democratic primary, the major network media outlets provided 120 minutes of coverage to Clinton, and her campaign, and only 20 minutes to Bernie Sanders. "The network news failed in many ways...," says Fang.

After months of not being paid, a group of Argentinian journalists form a cooperative to take over their newspaper, Tiempo Argentino. One year later, as a wave of anti-government protests erupt across the country, the cooperative struggles to keep their newspaper afloat. Determined to have a voice, the journalists are forced to look for ways to reach a larger audience and bring in more revenue. They decide to investigate a real estate scheme involving President Macri and the country's most popular football club, Boca Juniors. Under the first right-wing government elected in Argentina for more than a decade, can a newspaper survive its first year run by a cooperative of journalists?

Last week the United States designated the group as a terror organisation and pushed through a resolution at the UN targeting it for global sanctions. Western leaders believe the network is based across the border in Pakistan and may even to some extent be protected there. But if you ask Hina Rabbani Khar, Pakistan's foreign minister, she will tell you her country has nothing to do with the group, and resents implications that it is not doing enough to fight extremists: "My country has lost as much blood as anyone else ... I am opposed to the narrative that Pakistan is somehow not doing enough," she says. At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives.
