Sections of the media are anti-government
January 15, 2004
No one can help noticing that certain sections of the media, television talk-show hosts and news programmes such as Evening News and Prime News, as well as print such as the Stabroek News are bent on promoting PNCR anti-government propaganda rather than giving balanced news reportage and coverage of the many positive developments that are taking place.
It is clear that these media have an anti-government political agenda, regardless of what they may try to say to the contrary.
Their news coverage and reportage are very unbalanced and they play up any issue, always giving a pro-PNCR anti-government slant and actually cover up or ignore anything that is against the PNCR.
These media have no reluctance to claim that they are in fact " independent" but it is doubtful if they can fool more than a very few. They are in fact the willing mouthpieces of the PNCR political propaganda.
Independent media in-evitably criticise the government of the day from time to time.
When the PNC was in power prior to 1992 it was also said the Stabroek News was anti-government. This newspaper is not aligned to any political party.
