Liz Murdoch to join News Corp board after TV deal

first_imgMonday 21 February 2011 11:40 am whatsapp Liz Murdoch to join News Corp board after TV deal whatsapp Share Rupert Murdoch has paved the way for his daughter Elisabeth to join News Corp as a senior executive on Monday by buying her television production company Shine in a £415m deal.Liz Murdoch founded UK-based Shine, which makes shows such as Masterchef and Merlin, in 2001.Rupert Murdoch, whose News Corp owns broadcaster Fox and publishes newspapers including the Wall Street Journal and the UK’s News of the World, said he expected her to join the board of News Corp on completion of the deal.Liz Murdoch will report to Chase Carey, deputy chairman of News Corp, sidestepping her brother James, who is responsible for News Corp’s European and Asian assets, and is widely seen as heir apparent to his soon-to-be 80 year old father’s empire.Claire Enders of Enders Analysis said the move would increase competition in the succession race but it did not herald Murdoch senior stepping down.“The importance of putting his daughter on the board is that he obviously would like to have the option of one of his children taking over as chief executive, and they will no doubt perform a whole lot better breathing down each others’ necks,” she said. “But I don’t think that’s a precursor to him stepping down.”Rupert Murdoch has been involved in News Corp’s bid to take full control of BSkyB, a politically charged transaction against a backdrop of a phone-hacking scandal at his News of the World newspaper.News Corp and Shine signed a non-binding letter of intent and will now proceed with the regulatory filings required for the deal, they said in a joint statement.They will continue to negotiate the final terms of the deal, which is pending approval from both boards, the audit committee and the receipt of an independent fairness opinion.The companies did not provide an expected date for the deal to close. center_img Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL alison.lock last_img read more

The centennial of Red Summer is a pivotal moment against racist terror

first_imgDuring the Red Summer of 1919, a wave of white-supremacist terrorist attacks was unleashed on Black Americans. From February to November, white mobs and gangs carried out anti-Black riots and lynchings to uphold the status quo — as they saw it — and keep Black Americans in their place.While mainstream sources referred to these attacks as “race riots,” they were really acts of “anti-Black collective violence”, according to historian David Krugler in his book, “1919, The Year of Racial Violence: How African Americans Fought Back.” African Americans were not rioting.  They were fighting back, counterattacking and repelling violence. They were resisting.From 1917 to 1923, white mobs destroyed dozens of Black towns and communities, murdering thousands of African Americans, injuring thousands more, and displacing tens of thousands. The year 1919 marked the zenith of these terrorist attacks.Many catalysts led up to Red Summer:  Veterans were returning home from World War I,  causing a glut of workers in the job market. Black Americans were migrating en masse from the South to Northern cities. Black sharecroppers in the South were organizing for better pay and to end debt peonage. The “new Negro movement” of the early 1900s was becoming a force to be reckoned with, thanks to African-American veterans and civilians. This was a self-help movement started by Black elites who used respectability politics as a pillar.Black veterans on ‘front lines’ against racistsBut the overwhelming factor was that returning Black veterans were  determined not to go back to dehumanizing, oppressive Jim Crow rule, second-class citizenship and subservience to whites. They brought this spirit back to their communities.Another popular narrative pushed by politicians and the white media — and reinforced by military intelligence and the Justice Department — was that agitators, namely Bolsheviks and anarchists, were stirring up Black Americans. The 1917 Russian Revolution set off the Red Scare in the West. The uncertainty and trauma of World War I only exacerbated these fears.There were 39 reported mass instances of anti-Black violence instigated by whites in U.S. cities and rural counties in 1919.  They included an attack in Syracuse, N.Y., and several in Harlem, N.Y. The first large-scale so-called riot occurred in Jenkins County, Ga. Police had gone to an outdoor family gathering at Carswell Baptist Church and arrested Edmund Scott.  They hit him in the face and shot Joe Ruffin in the head, as he was trying to negotiate with them for Scott’s release after agreeing to pay his bond. The ensuing white mob shot and burned Joe’s two youngest sons – a 24-year-old veteran, and 13-year-old Henry.The most intense fighting took place in Washington, D.C., and Chicago. The greatest number of African Americans were murdered in Elaine, Ark., where Black sharecroppers were organizing to stop exploitation of their labor and debt peonage.White mobs frequently lynched African Americans. Lynching has enabled whites-only rule to prevail.  Dispensing rough justice by collective lynching  was the primary motive of racist mobs. It was viewed as a legitimate punishment of African Americans who defied white supremacy. Collective anti-Black violence in Charleston, S.C., Longview, Texas, and elsewhere aimed to punish Black Americans who defied Jim Crow and asserted their equality with whites. Now the state uses the police and the criminal justice system to oppress and punish African Americans. When African Americans were attacked, white officials usually handed the victims over to mobs. City and town officials did nothing to quell white violence until it was too late, especially in Washington and Chicago.  After days of racist attacks in Chicago, violent encounters later that summer were stopped within hours. Police monitored Black communities and disarmed Black citizens.Resistance and armed self-defenseWhen white mobs marched on Black communities, their members — men and women, veterans and civilians — set up armed posts, checkpoints and blockades to defend their families and property. Many Black folks in Knoxville, Tenn., Elaine, Ark., Washington and Charleston died doing so. In Charleston, after an evening of mob attacks against Black individuals on May 10, Krugler explains:  “Black Charlestonians got wind of the trouble and dispersed a rock-throwing mob. However white violence increased and Blacks continued to defend themselves and also began to retaliate.” Resistance tactics included banding together, carrying weapons, issuing advance warning of approaching mobs and engaging them. Across the country, Black residents under attack by marauding white mobs responded with individual and collective acts of self-defense. They repelled or slowed down gangs of white attackers.  In many cases, they prevented them from attacking Black neighborhoods. Armed resistance by African- American communities was not an anomaly.African Americans fought a three-pronged war against white mob violence, a point Krugler crystallizes in his book. On the first front, they mobilized to defend against armed white mobs that formed to drive African Americans from industrial jobs or white neighborhoods, to punish them for their wartime prosperity, to protect white women from alleged crimes committed by Black men and as revenge for perceived or imagined slights against white folks. On the second front, African Americans battled for the truth about the so-called “riots.”  White corporate newspapers and local officials erroneously blamed African Americans for the riots, characterizing self-defense and armed resistance as unprovoked violence against whites. The media openly and routinely described Black Americans in a racist  tone, using bigoted language. The “blame-the-victim” narrative, still used today when police execute a Black, Brown, Indigenous or trans person, was fed by rumors and lies.  The fight for justiceFinally, on the third front, African Americans fought for justice. Black Americans faced hostile law enforcement officers and biased court systems in 1919, just as we do today. Black self-defenders against mob attacks were wrongly arrested and prosecuted in city-after-city when they had lawfully protected themselves. To get justice in court, they had to successfully correct the narrative and set the record straight about the origins of the “riots.” Publicizing the facts was imperative. Here, the Black press played an important role.The NAACP, National Urban League and many other organizations undertook this task.  They laid the groundwork so that Black defendants could get some sort of justice. This proved especially important in Elaine, Ark., and Jenkins County, Ga.  Local juries convicted Black defendants in kangaroo courts. However, wrongly convicted Black folks did get some justice in state and federal courts.Nevertheless, no whites in Southern states were ever prosecuted or jailed for harming or murdering African-American residents. In Charleston, white sailors had started the riot, but Black sailors and civilians were jailed. In Chicago, Black and white residents were convicted and imprisoned. In Elaine, Ark., 21 Black Americans pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, but their convictions were later overturned. Convictions of 12 Black men charged with murder and then imprisoned on death row were overturned in 1925 by attorney Scipio Africanus Jones.‘Red Summer led to current Black Lives Matter movement’ What was the ultimate impact of Red Summer? It was the start of a long process which eventually ended Jim Crow and undid institutional bigotry, if not structural racism. It laid the groundwork for the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s and the current Black Lives Matter movement.It was the dawn of Black militancy and a precursor to the Black Power movement. Significantly, the events of Red Summer illuminated clearly that Black peoples across the planet must work in solidarity toward freeing all peoples in the African Diaspora from Jim Crow rule, colonialism and imperialism.  Black political resolve was strengthened in 1919 in response to the white mobs which organized to put Black people down. “The red summer sparked a long effort that led to the integration and participation of Black Americans into every aspect of society and government,” wrote Cameron McWhirter in “Red Summer: The Summer of 1919 and the Awakening of Black America.”    Today, African Americans’ rights to dignity and equality are under attack. We must remember the most important lesson of Red Summer: Resist and fight back against the oppression and repression by those who would destroy us — even if we die trying.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Letter to John Kerry: “make sure all of Cuba’s many voices are heard”

first_img CubaAmericas CubaAmericas May 6, 2020 Find out more News Cuba and its Decree Law 370: annihilating freedom of expression on the Internet Christophe DeloireSecretary-General Organisation Cuba represents the Western Hemisphere’s lowest position on Reporters Without Borders’ 2015 World Press Freedom Index, ranking 169th out of 180 countries. The Cuban government maintains a complete monopoly on information and will not tolerate any independent voices, ensuring that there is no free media. The only “official” media outlets must be authorized by the government, and the list is very short. Media sources that have not received official recognition are deemed illegal and are censored. Cuba is considered one of the world’s least connected countries. October 12, 2018 Find out more In addition to its tradition of censorship, Cuba has a long history of violence and harassment towards journalists. Many journalists working for independent media have received violent threats from the government. Roberto de Jesus Guerra, editor of independent news agency and free speech NGO Hablemos Press, was physically attacked by the Internal Security Department in June 2014. Another correspondent from the same publication was run down by a car that same month. In July of this year, many activists and journalists were arrested at a protest organized by the “Ladies in White” opposition movement, but were never charged. These events served as a reminder of 2003’s Black Spring when 27 journalists were arrested and sentenced to lengthy prison terms. Unfortunately, these are only several examples of a widespread issue. While Reporters Without Borders welcomes his release, we cannot stress enough the importance of releasing the two remaining journalists in prison, especially in light of Cuba’s dangerous prison conditions. Yoeni de Jesús Guerra García, an independent blogger from the agency Yayabo Press, was sentenced to 7 years in prison in March 2014 on charges of illegally slaughtering cattle, charges he claimed were fabricated due to his reporting. Yoeni has repeatedly been the victim of violence and possible torture by prison staff. José Antonio Torres, former correspondent for Granma, has been serving a 14-year prison sentence since July 2012 for vague charges of spying. On August 14, Secretary of State John Kerry will fly to Cuba in order to celebrate the renewal of diplomatic relations between the two countries.It is the first time since 1959 that the head of American diplomacy takes an official visit to the island. This is a unique opportunity for the United States to put the issues of freedom of the press and freedom of expression in Cuba at the top of the agenda. Reporters Without Borders has written an open letter to John Kerry asking him to publicly address the issue.Paris, August 13, 2015Dear Secretary of State Kerry, In post-embargo Cuba, barriers to press freedom must be broken. The United States has the opportunity and the responsibility to facilitate this change through diplomacy. Now is the time to demand the release of journalists who are still in prison. Now is the time to urge the government to allow independent media to operate without fear of violence or arrest. Now is the time to make sure all of Cuba’s many voices are heard. New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council Sincerely, Prominent and vocal journalists have recently been arrested and sentenced to long prison sentences for merely doing their job. Writer and blogger Angel Santiesteban-Prats was arrested in 2013 and sentenced to 5 years’ imprisonment on trumped-up charges of “home violation” and “injuries.” These charges were used as pretexts to arrest him for his outspoken criticism of the government. He was released on July 17, 2015 after completing more than two years of his sentence and is now on parole. During his time in prison, his website editor reported that he was repeatedly mistreated and tortured. The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights submitted a formal request last September urging the Cuban government to guarantee Santiesteban-Prats’ physical safety amid these reports. Now that he has been released, he is calling for a retrial. He sees his release as an attempt by the Cuban government to silence him, since he was able to write and express himself from inside his prison cell. But he has no intention of remaining silent and has already published a book entitled “Last Symphony,”a collection of short stories on violence in Cuba, part of which he wrote while in prison. center_img News Help by sharing this information to go further Receive email alerts News October 15, 2020 Find out more I thank you in advance, Secretary Kerry, for the attention you give to this letter. Cuba’s information monopoly and censorship practices do not apply only to local media – foreign journalists are also subject to restrictions, receiving accreditation only selectively. Furthermore, when foreign journalists cover stories that portray the current regime “too negatively,” they are deported. News While you are about to embark on a landmark visit to Cuba on August 14, Reporters Without Borders urges you to put the issues of freedom of the press and freedom of expression at the top of the agenda of your discussions with Cuban authorities. As the first highest level U.S. official to visit Cuba since 1959, you have the power and the duty to positively influence Cuba’s policies on these issues.
