Question

Read the passage carefully and answer the question that follows.

Like immigration or globalization, debating how Africa is reported is often a vexatious subject, it provides many people a good chance to enjoy an argument with a closed mind. Its either you come to the debate feeling that in spite of Sean MacBride’s commission over two decades ago, all reports about Africa in the western media will continue to be about death, disease, despair and destruction; or you are asking whether this whole business is about Africans wanting a separate code of journalism that denies its own realities, Its black or white, and no room in between for any shades of grey.

Lack of context in reporting, which is perhaps the greatest culprit at the moment, is just as much a problem among African journalists covering Africa as it is among European journalists – or journalist anywhere for that matter – trying to understand why Josef Fritzl would lock up his daughter in a cellar for 24 years and father seven children by her without anyone finding out.
