🇺🇸 🇮🇷 From rhetoric to reality: The return of US sanctions on Iran | The Listening Post (Lead)

Khaleej
Earlier this month, US President Donald Trump teased his 55 million Twitter followers about his latest action against Iran in the style of a Hollywood movie poster - a picture of him with the words: Sanctions are Coming. The United States has reimposed oil and financial sanctions against Iran, significantly turning up the pressure on Tehran in order to curb its alleged missile and nuclear programmes. Back in 2015, when former President Barack Obama signed the multilateral nuclear deal designed to monitor and limit Iran's nuclear programme, few would have predicted that his successor would not only pull out of the agreement but re-impose sanctions. The Trump administration says it wants to force Iran back to the negotiating table. But given the severity of the sanctions, the list of cond...

On this week's The Listening Post: After months of ratcheting rhetoric, the US re-imposes sanctions on Iran. Plus, historical revisionism in Israel's archives. 'Sanctions are coming': Trump, Iran and the messaging battle President Donald Trump dropped the word on Twitter with a Game of Thrones-inspired tagline: 'Sanctions Are Coming, November 5th'. The retaliatory tweet from Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei was no less confrontational, declaring that Trump's 'every decision is opposed by the world’. Back in 2015, when former President Barack Obama signed the multilateral deal designed to monitor and limit Iran's nuclear programme, few would have predicted that his successor would not only pull out of the agreement, but elect to re-impose sanctions. Tehran has put on a brave face, trying to c

LIVE: Migrant caravan heads north through Mexico | The Sun

United Kingdom
DONALD Trump has claimed he's willing to send up to 15,000 troops to the US-Mexico border to counter the caravans of migrants that he says are filled with "dangerous people". The American President's shocking announcement is triple the number of soldiers he had already promised to deploy to further control illegal migration. The new figure is a dramatic increase in the number of army personnel having previously revealed he was only planning on sending 800 troops to the border last week. Trump - who is cracking down on immigration ahead of the mid-term elections next week - then declared he was sending more than 5,200 soldiers before his latest hardened stance. He said: "We have about 5,800. We'll go up to anywhere between 10,000 and 15,000 military personnel on top of Border Patrol, I...

As Americans prepare to vote in midterm elections this week, it is worth considering the stories monopolising the US airwaves recently: the coverage of the migrant caravan from Central America; the pipe bombs sent to CNN among others, and President Donald Trump's incessant tweets - all developments with significant media angles to them. Jay Rosen, journalism professor at New York University, is an academic who's been studying the US media for more than 30 years. He spoke to The Listening Post's Richard Gizbert about Trump's attacks on the mainstream media, why they work, how CNN became a hate object and the larger crisis of credibility American journalism faces today. Al Jazeera: How has Donald Trump, two years into his presidency, turned the media into such a useful enemy - perhaps the ...

🇺🇸 The Chosen One: Trump and the Christian Broadcasting Network | The Listening Post (Feature)

Khaleej
US President Donald Trump has repeatedly labelled much of mainstream American media "fake news" and the "enemy of the people". But there are a few outlets that are in Trump's good books. It's common knowledge that Fox News is a soft landing spot for the president, but what's less well known is the wide-ranging access he, and many members of his administration, offer to the much smaller Christian Broadcasting Network, or CBN. Nicole Hemmer, the author of Conservative Media and the Transformation of American Politics, explains why Trump has so much time for CBN: "They're working on a different playing field; they're appealing in terms of faith, not necessarily in terms of facts. So, while Donald Trump dismisses journalists as "fake news", this kind of "faith news" is something that really ...
