Tough Questions

These questions have bothered me of late. What is the function of the media in a developing country like Malawi? Are journalists participants in development or watchdogs of those in power?

Should we stick o the old adage that we doubt everything and trash all hopes that come with the first steps of a journey towards prosperity?

I intend to answer these and other questions in a piece I am working on.

Do journalists in Malawi realise how much power they have? They can make or break people and events. They are extremely important in stimulating debate and discussion, building awareness, documenting the past, painting the future...there are gatekeepers of the past, present and the future....
