Big Papers, Big Governments

According to an Op-Ed in the Rwandan newspaper the New Times, the incredibly dubious New York Times coverage of the situation in the DRC is being used as a tool of blackmail and revenge.

“The Western governments use them instead as a level for blackmail, a kind of leverage against African nations. See what the two European countries, Sweden and Netherlands recently did. They suspended aid to Rwanda to the tune of 14 million Euros, over mere allegations that the country collaborates with DR Congo rebels. If this is not blackmail, tell me what it is.”

Hmmm….
