On the Listening Post this week, the new media offensive in Afghanistan and the Myanmar citizen journalists whose story has been turned into a documentary.
We start our show this week in Afghanistan. The war there is now in its eighth year and public support for it in the US and UK has never been lower. Perhaps its no surprise that as the latest offensive against the Taliban in Helmand Province continues, an equally vigorous media campaign is unfolding across the world's headlines.
Hints that Western governments are ready to talk to the Taliban have started to appear in the headlines in London and Washington. How are the governments of the NATO countries involved in the conflict getting their message across? How are the Afghan media telling the story of the latest fighting with elections there fast approaching? Our report will try to answer these questions by looking at the media, the war and the new narrative being created for Afghanistan.
