I could understand your apparent frustration with most of our journalists who practice parochialism instead of the ideals of an otherwise noble profession in, LONG-FORM JOURNALISM AND CULTURAL DEPTH. But in addition to jettisoning the principles and practice of journalism, plenty of these so called journalists may not have been well trained in the first place.
In other words, they pretend to know what they are ill-trained. The other fundamental problem is the very essence of setting upmedia organisations. A lot of them are there to champion regional, religious or tribal courses, as disgusted as neutral media. A typical example is a leading TV station in the country. There is a particular anchor of its current affairs interview programme. Hardly an edition where he would not sneak the issue of a Muslim-Muslim ticket even when not directly relevant. Not to talk of the so called mainstream papers where bundles of biased reports and analyses are the order of the day against the professional, moral principles and the spirit of national unity, peace and stability.
If these divisive media be the yardstick, the nation would have long collapsed but for the ever blessing of God the Most High and the innocent disposition of the ordinary folks despite the selfish machinations of the elites.
