The problem is that this support is not being given in the interests of the people. It is being paid corruptly to color the news to the favor of those providing the money. It serves the interests of the financiers. But in the end the people are the losers. They are not receiving honest news.
Therefore, I am advocating for greater transparency. People must have no doubt about the trustworthiness of media companies.
For now I will earnestly explore ways for providing interim support to honest news organizations. It will tide them over until the economy offers ample resources. At that point they will be free to truly operate independently in the interests of the media consumers.
This then is my vision for freedom of the press in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The media are needed to serve as a key asset for lifting the country from the pervasive morass in which it has been mired for far too long.
