Ethiopia - Friends of Gibe Full steam ahead የ ወንዤ ልጅ

By: Semeon-...It was in total disbelief that we read these pronouncements from the "Friends of the Earth" crowd. They have become so brazen, so in your face that nothing and no one is spared their venomous attack. These self appointed guardians of the planet have gone so out of control ...

Evidence of Things Unseen: Secrets Revealed at the Voice of America
BY ANNETTE C. SHECKLER


VOA-Amharic and Fairness.....Have Your Say!!
Do you believe in responsible journalism? Do you believe VOA-Amharic has been fair and responsible media? What comes to your mind when you listen to VOA-Amharic? That the station is biased and controlled by supporters of Ethiopia’s legal and illegal opposition groups? Should Ethiopia jam VOA-Amharic if and when it develops the technical knowhow to jam any radio station? Why is VOA allowing Oromiffa and Tigrigna programs to remain fair and balanced but not the Amharic program? Is VOA knowingly or unknowingly telling Amharic listeners as well as Tigrigna and Oromiffa listeners have different interest or different political mind set? It looks to us that way but what about you?... Have your say!

Fears over Ethiopia's press code for poll coverage
DDIS ABABA (AFP) – A new press code that sets guidelines for coverage of Ethiopia's elections in May has drawn fire from embattled media staff, who face fines and jail time if found guilty of violations....

Here in the US there is a very widely accepted rule where the media is prohibited/self censored not to report results from the East while the West and Midwest is still voting. Also after the Bush /Gore fiasco most pollsters have stopped throwing ill research poll results at the voters...this is what a responsible media will do! But, does Ethiopia have a responsible Media? Can it afford another election 2005 turmoil? We think not! Thus, better to for-warn abusers now!

Eritrea’s diplomatic twists and turns
Since the imposition of sanctions in UN Security Council Resolution 1907 (2009), the Government in Asmara has been trying to use every trick it can to minimize the impact. The sanctions were imposed because of Eritrea’s acts of destabilization in the region,... It would be the easiest thing for the regime to stop its support for Al-Shabaab, withdraw its forces from sovereign Djibouti territory, and end its backing for armed opposition movements in Ethiopia. President Isaias will have none of it...

US condemns Ethiopia for VOA jamming
WASHINGTON (AFP) – The United States condemned Ethiopia's blocking of Voice of America broadcasts, calling the country's accusations of the US radio service "baseless and inflammatory."
Didn’t the US block or deny Al Jazeera TV access to Cable TV or to that effect during the Iraq war? We are sure some of our resourceful readers will come with a precedence Ethiopia can use to silence the critics if it ever decides to Jam VOA-Amharic!
