    Pretty shallow thinking here. One person’s “objective” is some other persons “biased reporting.” The Constitution explicitly forbids the government from any control of the press. That’s it. Full stop. Don’t even go there. And perhaps we should turn this around. If politicians behave themselves they have nothing to worry about.

    Interesting question Kamwana:
    Maybe you should apply that same logic re: your “personal challenge” at The Hague….just as you insinuate that the media’s reaction implies lack of objectivity in their reporting…I will argue that you relentless attempts to avoid facing the charges facing you at The Hague speak to someone who is very afraid…ama?

      Because the penalties aren’t for crimes. They are for writing something that a quasi government agency doesn’t like.

    The media had this coming. With the crappy people pretending to be journalists. The mistakes in editorial content both in print and electronic, the sensational stories for ratings, with no backing in truth and the biased media council. Its about time!

      The Constitution doesn’t say that reporters shouldn’t be crappy. It doesn’t say they can’t make mistakes, it doesn’t say that editorials can’t be biased (actually that is what editorials are). It says “The State shall not (a) exercise control over or interfere with any person engaged in broadcasting, the production or circulation of any publication or the dissemination of information by any medium; or (b) penalise any person for any opinion or view or the content of any broadcast, publication or dissemination. Why is that so hard to understand. Democracy is messy. Get used to it.

        The constitution also does NOT encourage or give anyone,journalist or otherwise, to insult, deride,or abuse,simply because your in a position in media that enables one to do so! The media in Kenya has failed to regulate itseff & therefore ‘Big brother must now step in & do the needful!

    Objectivity depends on what you want to hear,what you stand for and hence the risk of interference with freedom of speech.

    THE MEDIA SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE AND NATURE THE FUTURE GENERATION NOT BEING COMPROMISED, TOO MUCH SELF INTERESTS. LET THE MEDIA STICK TO THEIR OBJECTIVE, BY EDUCATING THE SOCIETY , INFORMING AND ENTERTAINING.

    THERE IS NO LEADERSHIP AMONG JOURNALISTS AND THE ENTIRE MEDIA, MEDIA COUNCIL OF KENYA , KUJ, CORRESPONDENT ASSOCIATIONS, ETC . THESES ARE MONEY MINTING FACTORIES.
