#4069: Performance of journalists: A comment


Another thing to keep in mind when reading press stories from Haiti is that 
they have been edited by people who are not in Haiti for the sake of SELLING 
the story. There are many wonderful stories written about Haiti that never 
make it to the mainstream press or the wire services-even positive stories. 
Newspapers are about making money and selling stories, and with Haiti the 
topics of violence, poverty, and political controversy seem to be the most 
lucrative subjects.
