Journal Africa

Is Africa too dangerous for journalists?

There was a BBC Africa Live debate on Wednesday 7 July. It was asked, "If you're a journalist in Africa, what do you make of your job? Are you taking your life in your hands?

As a member of the public, do you think reporters truly reflect what you see happening around you?"

Moderated responses/comments are shown. Again, for those not wanting to trawl through everything, just scroll down and see highlighted comments on the right when following that link.

One that just caught my eye, as it was short and summed up what many of them seem to say: For Western journalists, there's never accurate reporting on Africa because of their ignorance. African journalists are mostly biased (because of political affiliations, or pressure/hardship)
