Baile Derseh Mihrete
A large number of people doubt what they read, what they see and hear in the news of EPRDF`s media. Governments want to convince the public to support of polices and their officials. Because the media draws on the content from the government.
The media of Ethiopia is among the most strictly controlled in the world .The constitution notionally provides for freedom of speech and the press, however, the government prohibits the exercise of these rights in practice, unless it is in praise of government/EPRDF/.The government not only tightly control all information coming in and out, but seeks to mould information at its source.
A typical examples of this was the death of Meles Zenawi news of which was not divulged until many days after it occurred .It is no surprise that woyanne controlled medias are allowed to lie and distort the truth as much as they want ,even if they risk looking ridiculous. The Woyanne cadre journalists behind those terrorizing institution may be getting promotion for their act of deception and lie. I remember the woyanne officials who lied about bademe and the border demarcation some years ago and never retraction or show remorse until now for his deception.
Reporters without borders have consistently ranked Ethiopia near the bottom of its yearly press freedom index. The press is tightly controlled by the state; Article 19 of the Ethiopian constitution protects freedom of speech and freedom of the press. In practice, the government only allows speech supports it and the ruling party/tplf or EPRDF party/.Media report in Ethiopia are often one sided and exaggerated playing little or no role in gathering and disseminating vital information, true to facts and providing propaganda for the regime. The EPRDF/TPLF/media effectively paints the country and vision of the regime in a fake positive light and showing the Ethiopian public as to the outside world`s perception of the country.
