TV journalists take united stand against systematic censorship

first_imgNews March 26, 2021 Find out more Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV Organisation September 7, 2020 Find out more to go further UkraineEurope – Central Asia News UkraineEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authoritycenter_img Help by sharing this information News Ukraine escalates “information war” by banning three pro-Kremlin media Reporters Without Borders is disturbed by the latest evidence of government pressure and harassment of the media that has emerged since it addressed an open letter to President Viktor Yanukovych on 28 April.Several journalists employed by TSN, the news service of the popular TV station 1+1, issued an open letter yesterday condemning the censorship to which they are now being subjected. “We, TSN journalists, want to announce that censorship has been introduced into 1+1,” the letter began.They said they were forbidden to cover certain stories, while reports criticising the new government were being withdrawn for political reasons. They said permission to broadcast an item now had to be obtained from the station’s director-general, Oleksander Tkachenko, instead of their news editor. Affirming the right to ignore political considerations, they said they wanted to inform viewers rather than put out propaganda for this or that party.“Freedom of expression is not an empty shell, it is the basis of our profession,” the letter said. “It is the reason for which we categorically reject the pressure being put on us.” Demanding an immediate end to control over TSN and to “the shameful practice of directives and instructions,” they called for a return to basic principles of journalism – objectivity, balance and fairness. Warning that they would henceforth try to report every case of censorship they learn about, they finally announced they would go on strike if their demands were not met.Journalists at the STB television station followed suit today, issuing an open letter in which they, too, condemned the systematic censorship that has been introduced within their station in recent months. Since last January’s presidential elections, there had been changes not only to the priorities but also to the tone to be adopted when reporting the news, the letter said. “Irony must no longer be used when talking of political events or politicians,” it added.As this kind of pressure on the news media is unacceptable in a democratic country, Reporters Without Borders supports this initiative by the journalists and encourages all those who believe in a free press to do so too. Reporters Without Borders also urges the 1+1 management, which has just admitted some of the cases of censorship, to respect its journalists and allow them to work normally.

At Capital One, Easy Credit and Abundant Lawsuits

first_imgBy Paul Kiel ProPublicaThis story was co-published with The Daily Beast.Several years ago, Capital One gave Oscar Parsons, 46, his first credit card. At the time, he didn’t need a loan. But he banked at a Capital One branch near his Bronx apartment, and when it was offered, he thought, “Why not?”Initially, he had little problem keeping up with the payments. But after a run of construction jobs came to an end, he fell behind and found himself ducking the bank’s collections calls, he said. Each time the company’s TV commercials popped up, asking, “What’s in your wallet?” Parsons thought: “It’s not enough to pay you back.”This year, Capital One provided Parsons with another first: his first lawsuit. For failing to pay his $1,800 debt, the company took him to court. Currently on public benefits and in a job training program, Parsons has nothing Capital One can take. But should Parsons find work, Capital One could use a court judgment to seize money from his bank account or take a portion of his wages.It was a hard lesson — one learned by hundreds of thousands of the bank’s cardholders. No lender sues more of its customers than Capital One, according to ProPublica’s review of state court data.Over the past year, ProPublica has sought to illuminate the scope of debt collection lawsuits, which, though they are often filed by public companies in public courts, are a largely hidden part of the nation’s financial life. The suits hit workers who earn below $40,000 a year the hardest and federal garnishment laws provide scant protection. Even workers near the minimum wage could have a quarter of their take-home pay taken or their bank accounts cleaned out. State laws typically offer little more protection.To identify which companies file the most collection suits, ProPublica obtained and analyzed court data from 11 states. In every state, Capital One stood out.During the years of the recession, particularly 2008 through 2010, when the number of credit card defaults surged, many banks filed more lawsuits. But Capital One dwarfed them all, reaching levels never matched by any company before or since, according to ProPublica’s review of data going back to 1996.By our estimate, the suits exceeded half a million per year nationally during those peak years.Since 2011, Capital One’s suits have dropped considerably, though they have continued to far exceed the totals of any other bank. For example, in Indiana counties for which court data is available — home to about two-thirds of the state’s population — the bank filed about 3,360 suits in 2014. That’s about a quarter of the suits Capital One filed in 2010, but still more suits than all other national banks combined in 2014. In Clark County, Nevada, which includes Las Vegas, Capital One’s suits comprised about 40 percent of all suits by major banks. In Miami-Dade County, Florida, the tally was about the same.Because court data is often kept at the county level, ProPublica combined data to compile numbers for entire states when possible, including New Jersey and Missouri. In some states, data was limited to major metropolitan counties. The time periods also varied, from a couple decades to only a few years, but the trends involving Capital One’s suits were consistent.The suits, often over debts as small as $1,000, reveal a largely hidden side of Capital One’s business. The bank has only the fourth largest credit card portfolio (as measured by both numbers of cardholders and balance size), but such a large portion of its cards are held by those with poor credit that it is the country’s largest subprime lender. With those loans comes a high risk of default, and the company is particularly aggressive at recouping losses.Capital One’s subprime borrowers live life on the edge, said Steve Brobeck, executive director of the Consumer Federation of America. “A large majority of these cardholders carry balances from month-to-month,” he said, because they can’t afford to pay off the balance.The “disturbing” volume of suits filed by Capital One should prompt regulators to investigate whether the perils of subprime credit cards outweigh the benefits, Brobeck said.A Capital One spokeswoman said the bank serves an important function by providing credit to large numbers of borrowers who might be unlikely to get it from other banks. When customers fall behind on payments, she said, the bank makes every effort to work with them.“We will not sue anyone working with us, no matter how small the payment,” said spokeswoman Tatiana Stead. But when customers don’t pay, she said, “we have an obligation to recover some of our losses so we can offer the best pricing to our customers.”Capital One’s suits are notable not just for how common they are. The company also files suits over much smaller debts than other banks.In 2013, the typical debt in a Capital One suit filed in New Jersey was about $1,500, according to ProPublica’s analysis of state court data. The typical debt in a suit brought by other major issuers like Citibank or Bank of America was more than three times as high. ProPublica found a similar gap in other states.Capital One offers cards with a credit line often as low as a few hundred dollars to customers with poor credit. On the bank’s website, the cards carry annual interest rates as high as 25 percent. After making payments for five months, customers’ credit limits can increase.Kevin Thomas, an attorney with the nonprofit New York Legal Assistance Group, often represents clients sued in Bronx Civil Court by Capital One. He said his clients frequently started with low-limit cards, but after Capital One raised their credit limits, their balances grew, the interest mounted and they lost control. Then, although their debts were not large, typically between $1,000 and $1,500, they ended up in court, he said.Debt collection lawsuits are especially prevalent in black neighborhoods, as ProPublica reported in October, where suits over smaller debts are more common. Capital One obtained judgments in mostly black neighborhoods at nearly twice the rate as in mostly white neighborhoods, a larger disparity than the other major card issuers, we found. Capital One’s spokeswoman said the bank did not take race into consideration when making a loan or filing a suit.Lawsuits over even small debts can provoke a crisis for low-income debtors. Patricia Boglin, 51, of Woodbridge, Virginia, works as a school bus driver, earning about $26,000 a year. When Capital One sued her over a $1,878 debt late last year, she said, she panicked. Would the bank try to foreclose on her house to force repayment? “It just terrified me,” she said.That a collection lawsuit could lead to foreclosure is a common fear among defendants, said Jay Speer, executive director of the nonprofit Virginia Poverty Law Center, even though it’s extremely unlikely. Of course, the realistic consequences of a suit — garnishment or a lien being placed on the debtor’s home — are serious.Boglin did not want to risk it, so she filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 13.How banks handle delinquent accounts is largely shielded from public scrutiny. They aren’t required to disclose how many suits they file. And the role of debt buyers — companies that purchase accounts from banks at a steep discount, then try to collect — further obscures what happens to customers who don’t pay.To generate a national estimate for Capital One’s suits, ProPublica looked to Encore Capital Corp., the nation’s biggest debt buyer, which voluntarily disclosed the number of suits it had filed nationally until 2010. That year, the company reported having filed 517,000 suits.Capital One filed about 40 percent more collection suits than Encore in 2010 in the states for which ProPublica has data, indicating that the bank filed at least half a million suits that year nationally and potentially hundreds of thousands more. Our data showed even more suits in the two preceding years.Capital One declined to respond to this comparison or provide a count of its suits.After 2010, Encore Capital, under scrutiny for its litigation practices, stopped disclosing the number of suits it had filed. A spokesperson for Encore did not explain the decision beyond saying, “as we have diversified and grown as a company, we continue to evaluate what disclosures are appropriate for our investors.”Because some banks sell their defaulted accounts to debt buyers like Encore, it is impossible to determine how many of their customers were ultimately sued. The three largest card issuers, Citibank, Bank of America, and JPMorgan Chase, have sold accounts to debt buyers in the past, according to court filings.Capital One has also sold debt in the past. Stead, the bank’s spokeswoman, declined to provide detail on its debt-selling practices, but said the bank’s “strong preference” is to do its own collecting.The lack of transparency leaves both borrowers and policymakers in the dark, said April Kuehnhoff, an attorney at the National Consumer Law Center. “We need more data about debt-collection practices by both debt buyers and original creditors so that we can improve debt collection laws,” she said.ProPublica contacted the six largest card issuers for this story, and all were guarded when it came to details about their approach to collections.Citibank and Bank of America declined to respond to questions. Chase stopped filing lawsuits or selling its debt in 2011, after a whistleblower identified flaws in the bank’s collection practices. Those problems led to a consent agreement with regulators in 2013.Discover filed the second-most suits, according to ProPublica’s analysis. It, too, declined to comment. Like Capital One, Discover’s volume of suits was also disproportionately large given the bank’s relatively small market share — Discover is the sixth-largest card issuer.American Express, the fifth-largest issuer, filed relatively few suits. Spokeswoman Sonya Conway said the bank has not sold its debt in the past six years and had no plans to do so.Federal regulators say they are alert to the potential for abuse through debt collection lawsuits, but it’s unclear that consumers should expect any more transparency in the near term.Banks should “consider the risks of excessive litigation,” said Bryan Hubbard, spokesman for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. The regulator has also publicly urged banks, when selling debts to buyers, to “consider selecting debt buyers who limit their use of litigation.”While the agency says it closely monitors banks’ collection practices, that scrutiny does not extend to tracking the number of lawsuits each bank files. Hubbard said the agency does not consider the number of lawsuits “an effective indicator of bank safety and soundness or compliance.”The federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is in the process of writing new rules for debt collection that are expected to cover a wide range of activities, including the filing of lawsuits. A spokeswoman declined to comment on whether the CFPB tracked the number of collection lawsuits filed by banks or planned to in the future.A number of the bureau’s past enforcement actions have centered on debt collection litigation practices. It filed suit against the largest collections firm in Georgia, Frederick J. Hanna & Associates, which counts Capital One among its clients. Calling the firm a “debt collection lawsuit mill,” the CFPB alleged attorneys often filed suits with faulty information. The law firm disputes the allegations, and the suit is ongoing.ProPublica is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative newsroom. Sign up for their newsletter.

Kingsbarns confirmed for Voltigeur

first_img “Roger will just check his well-being this weekend before committing him to the race. “He’s had one or two disappoint a little of late so he just wants to make sure. “He’ll probably work on Friday or Saturday and then make a decision. “Roger also has Elkaayed who ran in the Gordon Stakes so he’d have a bit of a line through him. “This looks the right race and he has been in good form since Ascot.” Press Association The Coolmore team have a wealth of talent at their disposal, with Queen’s Vase winner Leading Light another in the running for this St Leger trial. Foundry, Sir Walter Scott and Hall Of Mirrors have also yet to run this term, while Fortify, Kingdom and Plinth are the other O’Brien confirmations. One-time Derby favourite Telescope is in the field, as expected, with Sir Michael Stoute seeking quick compensation following the colt’s eclipse in the Rose of Lancaster Stakes at Haydock last week. Cap O’Rushes won the Gordon Stakes at Goodwood for Godolphin and he is one of two possibles for the owners, along with Secret Number, who finished a close-up fifth in that race. The pair are trained by Charlie Appleby and Saeed bin Suroor respectively. The Gordon third Spillway could try his luck again for Eve Johnson Houghton, while Mutashaded, Nichols Canyon, Royal Skies and Willie The Whipper round out the list of 16 possibles. Roger Varian’s Mutashaded will gallop over the next couple of days before his participation is confirmed. Lightly-raced, he was last seen finishing third behind Hillstar in the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot on just his third start. Owner Hamdan Al Maktoum’s racing manager Angus Gold said: “The Great Voltigeur has always been the plan. Kingsbarns is an intriguing name among eight Aidan O’Brien-trained contenders in the Neptune Investment Management Great Voltigeur Stakes at York on Wednesday. Last year’s Racing Post Trophy winner, who still holds an entry in the Juddmonte International on the same day, has yet to race this season after suffering a setback when being prepared for a Classic challenge in the spring. O’Brien had planned to work him after racing at the Curragh last Sunday but the quick ground there forced the Ballydoyle trainer to rethink that plan, although he reported the colt in fine form and progressing well. last_img read more

Pattaya football stadium stalled at 40% complete

first_imgContractor Rama 2-HT Joint Venture Co. claims work on Pattaya’s football stadium is now 40 percent complete – ten years after it was first started.Pattaya’s football stadium has been under construction for more than a decade. Whether it will be completed for a 2026 Olympic event remains an open question.Mayor Sonthaya Kunplome and his deputies paid their annual visit to the 254-rai Soi Chaiyapruek 2 Eastern National Sports Center Jan. 16 and found that little has changed since their Jan. 25, 2019 visit.
