If VOA is an Independent Media why isn't ETV considered an Independent?
In a stunning turn around, after years of playing deaf ear to complaints by many of its listeners and the Ethiopian government, VOA is revisiting and reviewing its coverage when it comes to Ethiopia. The VOA Amharic service has been the main target for the many complaints but of late one of its employee (David Arnold)who recently met Minister Bereket has been mired in false reporting. In fact VOA in unprecedented manner was forced to remove any reporting credited to David Arnold about his meeting with Minister Bereket from its web page. The reason given for the removal of the news item was the reporting was outright false. Many think such blunder may have helped the VOA board of governors to force a complete review of past coverage. To this effect the VOA seems to have decided its main target for its programming are the people in Ethiopia not the extremist in Diaspora. The extremist were ignored by VOA managers despite their plea to be heard last Monday(7/25/2011)

Igad's Executive Secretary, Mahboub Maalim, told the BBC that the process of rejoining the regional body was in the "very early, preliminary stages". Eritrea is under UN sanctions for its alleged support of Somalia's al-Shabab(...updated from source)

...there may be a very good reason for IGAD countries to welcome Eritrea after all the troubles they went and are going through due to the mad man regime in Eritrea; nevertheless they should know Isaias Afeworki is a survivalist and as such they should not be hoodwinked by his latest charm. IGAD countries would do good to themselves if they can hasten his down fall by helping the Eritrean people as well as continuing the diplomatic pressure at the UN.
