Libya: Media Propaganda and "Humanitarian Imperialism"

http://Libya: Media Propaganda and "Humanitarian Imperialism"

"All this information reveals a number of facts crucial to the understanding of this conflict, and is available for whomever bothers to do a bit of research. Yet, it seems like the role of the mainstream press is not to deliver facts, but rather propaganda.

 

Whether this bias is deliberate or not, the result is in any case the same: they are not doing their job correctly. Once again".

 

This is the conclusion of an article which link I enclosed above.

Some very disturbing facts in there. Several questions raise: what is really happening in Libya? Is it true journalists are not doing their job properly ?

What it sure it that journalists are supposed to put everything into question, to chack and verify everything and to take nothing for granted. Something that apparently has been lacking since the beginning of events on the other side of the Mediterranean.

Don't you think so ?
