As I said I would

I did say that I would try and find a discussion on media coverage of Africa. This discussion was between the Nigerian Guardian's Reuben Abati, and BBC World Service programme, The World Today presenter, Max Pearson. Broadcast February 16. Before you get het up about the abrupt end, there were time constraints. Five and a half minutes on an item is a lot, believe me.

well, sounds to me like Abati is echoing what many others (including myself) have said: it's not so much a question of whether the dark stories reported by the media are true: it's whether the overall picture painted is balanced.
