The Kenyan Media in general has failed the Kenyan People and it is a shame that we get more information from the likes of BBC and CNN and others than all of them combined in their best days..one might argue and say that "they are distorting and misrepresenting the image of the country as they usually do with anything from the African continent". Well, if the Kenyan media would give its readers ANY information if at all, then, there would be no need to go off at what the international media have to say. This is a lesson to everyone, we need an independent, internationally (could be by Kenyans for Kenyans or anything made in Africa) media house that will operate without fear of repercussions from the government or any other entity for that matter. And a media that have a responsibility to upholding the law and fairness of press without fear. That media is acutely lacking in Kenya at present time.

There is a great post by Anne Applebaum of Washington post. She is no kenyan but she have some facts.
