3M: Mass Media Misinformation

Once the vanguard of quality journalism it seems that the under-resourced staff at the leading news gathering organizations around the world are feeling the pinch. As a result we are seeing the effect on Eritrea, throughout history poorly treated, often sought, and in today’s world of sound bites nary listened to. Of course telegraphing that message is made all the more difficult by editorial decisions made elsewhere that can misinform the reader without the approval of the on-the-ground journalist.
