Credible News Sources

Credible News Sources

Recently, Keith Olbermann, on his MSNBC news show, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, cited Fox News as the “worst persons in the world.” He claimed that the Fox News Channel is blatant right-wing propaganda. He also noted that President Obama, in a recent TV interview (the same interview, incidentally, as the now-notorious fly-swatting incident, in which, according to news reports on MSNBC, NBC, CBS, CNN and elsewhere, the President demonstrates his “remarkable fly-swatting skills”) claimed that there was at least one news channel dedicated to undermining his administration at all costs. Olbermann suggests that the President was referring to Fox News.

Back in the day when the Republicans controlled both houses as well as the Presidency, a period that might well go down in history as a modern-day Dark Ages or Reign of Terror, the Fox News channel was considered to be the bastion of credible news. So much so that all other news agencies were too afraid even to question their authority.

Fox News, owned by Australian media magnate Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., had started on the premise that conventional news sources like CNN and network news operated on a principle of a subtle left-wing cultural bias resulting from the educational and social milieu of their journalists. The solution that Fox News apparently proposed was to dedicate a news channel to supposedly “fair and balanced” news coverage. “Fair and balanced” became their watchword, but it soon proved to be ironic. Over time, their supposedly objective news coverage has been exposed as right-wing propaganda that was pretty blatantly pandering to the Bush administration while they were in power.

This brings us to MSNBC’s news lineup. MSNBC is a news channel that is produced as a joint venture, as the name suggests, between Microsoft (the monolithic software giant founded by Bill Gates) and NBC. Their lineup of news shows supposedly offers us the alternative to Fox News, but, as implied by Keith Olbermann, what they are really offering us is left-wing propaganda that panders to the Obama administration.

The tragic consequence of all this government pandering and institutional propaganda is that the number-one casualty in mainstream news coverage is credibility. Where are the Woodwards and Bernsteins of today, with their stunning exposés of corruption in high places? Definitely not at either Fox News or MSNBC.

Perhaps the answer to where we can find credible news sources lies with CNN–still bland and presenting the façade of objectivity while concealing a subtle left-wing bias–who now, apparently, resorts to blogs, Twitter feeds and Facebook posts to supplement their on-site correspondent reports. CNN even encourages you to submit amateur videos via the “iReport” section on their website, which allows them to feature the videos on their news shows after a process of vetting and verification. In fact, in the ongoing Iranian uprisings, where mainstream journalists are being banned and extradited by the authoritarian Iranian regime, western news sources are having to rely on Twitter feeds, blogs and amateur video from Iranian citizens as their news sources.

This brings us to the argument that mainstream news organizations have recently been making against the Blogsphere, especially in the wake of such recent films as State of Play, directed by Kevin Macdonald, namely that the Blogsphere is composed primarily of amateurs who are out of their depth, whereas if you are looking for cutting-edge Woodward-and-Bernstein style in-depth reporting, you will find it only at the major news organizations who have the skills and resources at their disposal to support that kind of news coverage.

The reality–at least two of the so-called major news organizations are dedicated to producing partisan propaganda that pretty shamelessly panders to politicians while the third is increasingly resorting to the Blogsphere to provide its news sources. As for Woodward and Bernstein, they are both retired and writing books for a living.

The moral of the story appears to be, therefore, that if you are looking for cutting-edge journalism, skip the news networks and, instead, check out the Blogsphere!

Ethiopian News and About Ethiopia

Ethiopian News and About Ethiopia

Ethiopia is located in the Horn of Africa, bordered by Eritrea to the north, Sudan to the west, Kenya to the south, Somalia to the east and Djibouti to the northeast. Its size is 1,100,000 km² with an estimated population of over 85,000,000. It is one of oldest countries in the world and the second most populous in Africa – only second to Nigeria. The population is diverse and has more than 70 different languages. The dominant ethnic group in Ethiopia is the Oromo (40%), followed by the Amhara (30%), and Tigray (6%).

Ethiopia has the most number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Africa and is famous for its rock-hewn churches, structures that tell the long history about Ethiopia. Ethiopian news is dominated by achievements of its world famous distance athletes. Ethiopia’s well-know distance runners include Abebe Bekila, Mamo Woldie, Haile Gebresilassie, Kenenisa Bekele, Deratu Tulu, and Tirunesh Dibaba. It is difficult not to include such athletes when talking about Ethiopia.

Ethiopia is the origin of the coffee bean, and Africa’s largest coffee producer. Coffee is Ethiopia’s number one export and the source of most of it foreign currency. Some 12 million Ethiopians depend on coffee and related industries. Coffee is an integral part of Ethiopian culture and about Ethiopia.

The headquarters of United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) is in Addis Ababa, often labeled Africa’s “Diplomatic Capital,” as is the headquarters of the African Union (formerly the Organization of African Unity), of which Ethiopia was the principal founder.

Ethiopia is also known for being one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world. For much of the past several decades, the country depended on food aid to feed part of its population. The country faced some significant droughts and famine in the last half century. Latest trends are, however, encouraging. For much of the last decade, the country’s economy has been growing 5-12% a year.

The government of Ethiopia is federal system of government. The current President is Girma Wolde-Giorgis, the ceremonial head of state. The Prime Minister and the head of the government is Meles Zenawi, who belongs to a coalition of parties known as the EPRDF. Under the present government, opposition parties, Ethiopian news organizations and several press watchdog agencies complain of lack of sufficient press freedom. They allege that citizens have little access to media about Ethiopia other than the state-owned networks, and complain that private newspapers are struggling under restrictive press laws.

Ethiopian news print media include state-owned newspapers such as Addis Zemen and Ethiopian Herald, and private newspapers such as the Ethiopian Reporter, Addis Fortune, Daily Mirror, Addis Admas and Ethiopian Capital. Ethiopian news organizations include the state-owned Ethiopian News Agency and the EPRDF-owned Walta Information Center. Internet-based Ethiopian news organizations are many but small and mostly foreign-based. Many of these sites complain of being blocked and inaccessible from within Ethiopia. Poor internet connectivity in Ethiopia may also be one reason for the lack of well-developed Ethiopian news sources on the internet.

Mapping Business News

Newspapers both print and online publications as well as news websites illustrate business trends using a variety of data visualization tools. Integral to the display is the fact that these charts or maps require to be easy to comprehend and visually arresting enough to hold the readers’ attention. Most publications show business data with a worldwide perspective. In this respect, the usage of flash maps in order to illustrate or just facts allows for easy comparison and analysis.

Take for example the phenomenon of recession. One of the first questions that any individual has regarding this economic downturn is how the markets over the world has been affected. If one is to illustrate this data through attractive and comprehensive visualization the easiest method is to plot all the data on a map. Mapping software allows us to superimpose charts on a map which is an effective way to illustrate the data keeping geographical concerns in mind. Another and perhaps the more effective way to do it is to choose color ranges to correspond to data ranges and then use pin points to mark each city or country or market as desired. A mouse over option can be included which allows one to get to the actual chart displaying in greater detail the market calisthenics. The chart can also include a link to homepage of the market being studied which will provide more information with regard to the money metrics.

This kind of mapping can also be used in a 2D map for print purposes. In this case too, color coded markers can effectively illustrate the trends over the world.

A layman is easily distracted and confused by a set of numbers run without sufficient classification by newspapers and magazines. With respect to this concern, anything from commodities traded in to flourishing markets and dips in stock indexes can be illustrated using a world map or even the map of a country as a background to plot numbers on. Further analysis of a map allows us to relate trends with economic policies and market characteristics. Yet another advantage in using maps like this is the ability to choose a time line for review varying from a year right up to 100 years. Each year or set of years can be conveniently color-coded making a map that is visually stunning and simple to comprehend.
