Show 162 Thursday 12 October

Watch today’s show at YouTube or grouper.

Intro

Hi, I’m Sarah and this is The Daily English Show.
The other day I was talking about the word hypocrisy. Well I found an example of it being used in a newspaper.
It was in The New Zealand Herald. The story starts: Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has accused the West of cold-heartedness and hypocrisy in trying to shut out migrants, including refugees, from Africa and other hotspots.
So I guess she’s saying that the West pretends to care about migrants and refugees, but their actions show that they don’t.
By the way, a refugee is a person who has been forced to escape their country in order to escape war, persecution or natural disaster.
And persecute means to treat somebody in a cruel and unfair way, especially because of their race, religion or political beliefs.
So, today’s show is mostly about Angelina Jolie.

STICK NEWS

Kia Ora, in Stick News today, Angelina Jolie has criticized the West for not doing enough to help refugees.

Angelina Jolie is an American actor. She has been married twice and has three children. In 2001 she starred in the movie Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.
The movie was filmed in Cambodia and Jolie said it was an eye opening experience.
“I discovered things about what’s happening in the world”, she said.
She then visited many refugee camps with the UN and became a UN goodwill ambassador.
Jolie has been using the public’s interest in her to promote humanitarian causes through the mass media.
Yesterday it was reported that Jolie said it was a scandal that such a rich world was not feeding all people in refugee camps, especially in Africa.

Angelina Jolie is currently in India filming the story of the American Journalist Daniel Pearl, who was kidnapped and murdered in Pakistan, in 2002.
And that was Stick News for Thursday the 12th of October.
Kia Ora.
