Biased media coverage of Kenya

January 13th, 2008 · 1 Comment

David Zarembka critiques a few news reports on the situation in his Report 17 – Hoodwinked: International Coverage of the Crisis in Kenya

If this story had been true, it would have been one of the biggest massacres in the current violence in Kenya. Even though the story was fabricated, it was passed on by at least CNN and Time. I have never seen any reference to it in the Kenyan media.

This ought to be a red flag not only for coverage of the recent events in Kenya, but overall coverage by the international media in Africa.
