And who is speaking for them?

Comments on Ato Gebru Asrat and Dr Hailu Araya of Mederk recent interview with the private media
Some of the so called private presses in Ethiopia have been more deterrent than helpful to promote "mechachal" and the building of democratic culture in the country. In an ideal world the private press itself as well as citizens should have denied such publication to exist by denying ears and eyes. But Ethiopia is a young democratic country and lacks such power thus why ETV may have been forced to do an expose on some of the private press performance over the years. However the State Media should be very careful not to instill fear on the private press and not to appear favoring one paper over the other in doing such programs.
