All hail the Fourth Estate but…

The Fourth Estate in our country is one of the most robust on the continent yet also one that still leaves a lot to be desired.

Consider the dramatic angling of the various sections of the mainstream media on the Anglo-Leasing story; it’s amazing, isn’t it, how some of them continue to undergo Pauline conversions in the manner they handle stories (shifting alliances every now and then). 
There’s that thing called public interest and human interest stories, but I’m hard-placed to find anything close to that in our media products….much of the time at least….since December 2002. 
Only media-literate Kenyans might be in a position to see through the facade and realize that everyone from the civil society, the clergy to the media abandoned them the moment the Third Republic emerged. 
Now there’s a new election in the horizon and everyone is busy currying favour with you and me.
