The President met Senior Media Heads last morning – Papers only report half the story!
Think about it. You the public are NOT told the whole story, because we the media, use self censorship, especially when we are challenged on our own reporting, and own faults, and WE SWEEP IT UNDER THE CARPET!
What the President effectively told the gathering of all Media, summoned at 8am to be briefed by him, was:
“Hey guys, I risked my life to overthrow one of the world’s most distasteful dictators, if I failed my family would have been tortured and killed in front of my own eyes, before I received the same fate. His family rule, has plundered his country, killed its people, led them a dance, fooled them with lies, allowed cronies to rob every imaginable institution blind, and you guys are giving this joker of an ex-president TOO MUCH PUBLICITY, and allowing him to get off scott free from his heinous crimes against the state that deserve the DEATH PENALTY for TREACHERY. Further he has left the Country having to shoulder the MASSIVE debt left behind from this bad Governance and Daylight Robbery, which we as a RESPONSIBLE Government are trying desperately to solve, with minimum hardship being put on the people.”
The implication being that the Media believe he will return to haunt us, and that they are trying to save their own skin, by pandering to his vainglory for fear or retribution, and are NOT informing the public adequately of the mess he has left us to clean up, simply because of his profligacy, and the Govt. has to resort to ads to inform the people as the Media is not doing this effectively!
There was a full page ad in today’s papers that headlined “The landmines that have wrecked the economy” and ended with “We cannot and will not pass on this burden to our children, and future generations. Instead of seeking short-term political benefits, we will take prudent and decisive steps to resolve this unprecedented debt crisis.”
