I am not even talking about the PROPAGANDISTS who disguise themselves as news media to feed the population with INFLATED news... Especially in politics...

Sometimes, as a reader, I like to be informed about WHAT is happening and I like to form my own opinion. But, many times when reading a Haitian news article, the opinion is ALREADY embedded in the article.

Have you ever been reading a Haiti news story and you suddenly start to get upset?

Have you ever realize afterwards that the person who wrote the article wants you to be upset?

Sometimes I feel like journalists in Haiti are the fourth branch of Government... Many media outlets in Haiti are in the OPPOSITION... how can they report the news objectively?

What do you think about that?
