MEDIA WATCH GERMANY----GERMANS REMAIN MOSTLY CLUELESS BY MEDIA ON MILITARIZATION OF HAITI IN LAST WEEK
By Kevin Stoda, Wiesbaden
Greek government leaders listen to Democracy Now and other American alternative media. Why don't Germans and other European states and statesmen listen and/or watch alternative news?
Earlier this month, Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou was on Democracy Now (DN) and let listeners know that he, in fact, listened regularly to DN in order to get important news from the USA. I do not recall any other Premier or Western Head of State saying that he listened to a good progressive alternative reporting media source.
I would think that German government officials and other EU leaders and ministers should listen and watch alternative progressive media sources often so as to stay ahead of the curve in the information world in this information age.
Amy Goodman and others at DN are out driving around Haiti this week. They report from the ground where help has not landed on the ground. They show where help needs to be sent.
