Every day their news is filled with stories about protest, terrorism, crime, trolling gov't officials, Qatar, travels made by president and PM and clan clashes.
News is about things that happen, not things that don’t happen. 
In this thrd i will talk about what i call FAKE NEWS.
Most of the #Somali journalists or those who were employed to talk about #Somalia focus on stories about war as if they are "war correspondents". They will rather talk about protest or small explosion than developments in the country.
Some journalists are making things worse, they can make it better.
There are many good journalists working today for good quality media. But they're trapped in an agenda of politics, fear, crisis, scandal and corruption. They are giving us a wrong picture of our country. So Sad.
