Written By : Rajen Naidu Sydney. Hillary Clinton lost the Democrats’ presidential nomination to Barrack Obamba and immediately her husband former US President Bill Clinton accused the media of bias against Hillary.
He claimed: “It’s just the most biased press coverage in history”. (ABC 3/6).
This is a good example of how common this complaint against the media is everywhere.
There is one difference. In a genuine democracy such as the US Mr Clinton can ventilate against the media but he can’t threaten to close it down.
It is a very important difference and we could learn from it to give more meaningful shape to “sustainable democracy” in our beloved country.
