  + stars: | 2021-09-21 | by ( Holly Ellyatt | )   time to read: +6 min
Supporters of the German Social Democrats (SPD) party, attend at an election campaign rally on August 27, 2021 in Berlin, Germany. What form the next coalition takes will undoubtedly have a big impact on Germany's economy which is Europe's largest and, arguably, its most important. A new coalition will have to be formed after the vote and German economists say certain alliances could have "massive consequences" on the country's economy. Germany's respected Ifo Institute and newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung surveyed 153 economists at German universities, asking them how different coalition formations could affect Germany's economic growth, unemployment, public debt, and income inequality. "Less than one week ahead of the 26 September federal election, the Social Democrats continue to lead in the polls.

(A spokesman later called to say Mr. Blinken wasn’t trying to take full credit for evacuations.) Mr. Blinken also said the United States was still trying to bring out more Afghan journalists, particularly those who have worked for Voice of America and other media outlets funded by the U.S. government. Several people at those organizations confirmed that account, though they spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are still trying to get other journalists out of Afghanistan. Many Afghan journalists who worked for media outlets funded by the U.S. government, including Radio Free Europe, also had to make other arrangements. “The U.S. government has yet to fulfill its commitment to evacuate vulnerable Afghan journalists,” Mr.

Hong Kong's Commissioner of Police Chris Ping-keung Tang attends a news conference in Hong Kong, China August 27, 2020. REUTERS/Tyrone SiuHONG KONG, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Hong Kong's security chief called on Wednesday for the city's main press association to disclose to the public who its members work for and how many of them are students, a day after he accused the group of infiltrating schools. The HKJA, responding to Tang, said it abided by the law in Hong Kong and that the accusation that it infiltrates schools was wrong. The media industry has seen profound changes since Beijing imposed the security law last year. The Professional Teachers' Union, Hong Kong's largest, disbanded this month after it was criticised by Chinese state media for "politicising" education.

Female protesters march through the Dashti-E-Barchi neighborhood, a day after the Taliban announced their new all-male interim government with a no representation for women and ethnic minority groups, in Kabul, Afghanistan, Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2021. The U.N. rights office on Friday said that the Taliban response to peaceful marches in Afghanistan has been increasingly violent, with authorities using live ammunition, batons and whips that have resulted in at least four protester deaths. Ravina Shamdasani, U.N. rights spokesperson, told a U.N. briefing in Geneva that it had received reports of house-to-house searches for those who participated in the protests. Journalists have also faced intimidation and one of those who was beaten in custody was verbally threatened with a beheading, she added.

Afghan journalists beaten in Taliban detention, editor says
  + stars: | 2021-09-09 | by ( )   time to read: +2 min
Sept 9 (Reuters) - Two Afghan journalists were beaten in police custody this week after covering a protest by women in Kabul where they were detained by the Taliban, their editor said. The last time the Taliban ruled the country from 1996-2001 there was no independent media and the Internet was in its infancy. Several journalists have complained of assault since the Taliban returned to power, and some women have said they were not allowed to carry on working in media jobs. Under the first Taliban rule, women were banned from work and education. "But with the yesterday's incident, that little hope I had for the future of media and journalists in country is destroyed."

The Taliban invited journalists to inspect the remains of the CIA's base in Kabul. The US destroyed the base as it retreated, hoping to keep intelligence from Taliban hands.

Most civilians were killed during the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the strikes on ISIS in Syria. The deadliest years for civilians were 2003 and 2017, the report found. But the Airwars report, released Monday, illustrates that pivoting away from boots on the ground does not necessarily mean fewer civilians being killed. Relying on the maximum estimate, "2017 is in fact the worst year for civilians," the report found, with up to 19,623 killed. In Raqqa alone, more than 1,600 civilians were killed as the US sought to dislodge ISIS from its declared Syrian capital, per Airwars and Amnesty International.

No one’s happy to say they told you so as a worst-case scenario becomes real.

Republican trust in the national media has seen a particularly dramatic drop since late 2019, when 49% said they had at least some trust in the press. Both Republicans and Democrats say they have more trust in local news organizations than in national media, although that trust has also eroded somewhat in recent years. Trump's aggressive, years-long campaign against the national media has undoubtedly played a role in the rapid decline in trust in the media.

MEXICO CITY, Aug 29 (Reuters) - Mexico received 86 media workers and their family members from Afghanistan on Sunday, the government said, as more people flee the country after the Taliban militant group's takeover earlier this month. They arrived at Mexico City's international airport as the third group since widespread evacuations began. Mexico called the reception of people from Afghanistan "a political decision" carried out in full adherence to the historical tradition of humanitarian assistance. Last week, Mexico received 124 media workers and their family members from Afghanistan, including New York Times journalists. In the past two weeks the United States and allies have taken about 114,400 people out of Afghanistan, including foreign nationals and vulnerable Afghans who fear persecution under Taliban rule.

A trailblazing female Afghan journalist has left the country over the fear of the Taliban. Beheshta Arghand was the first female presenter to conduct a live, in-studio interview with a Taliban member. "I left the country because, like millions of people, I fear the Taliban," Arghand told CNN, adding that she and her family were able to evacuate on a Qatari Air Force plane with the help of prominent activist Malala Yousafzai. The crackdown on women in public life has also had a chilling effect on women working for independent news stations like TOLO. In addition to the Taliban, female journalists also face threats from ISIS-K, the region's Islamic State affiliate and a Taliban rival.
