Al Jazeera Appears to Lend Itself to TPLF Disinformation

What is missing is a media that dares to call a spade a spade and clearly identify the TPLF as the perpetrator, not the victim, of this disaster that it brought itself over Tigray.

Be it Al Jazeera or any other news media, it is clear that they have a responsibility to report the truth, and should try very hard to avoid presenting hearsay and politically tainted false news as facts on the ground.

The signing of the peace agreement between Eritrea and Ethiopia on 9th July 2018 in Asmara, the Eritrean capital, brought to an end twenty years of hostility between the two countries. One would think that peace after so long would be welcome by all, but the Tigray People Liberation Front (TPLF) — former ruling party in Ethiopia — made it its life ambition to reverse the new found peace and revert back to the previous state of war.

Al-Jazeera: A Persistent Campaign that Remains Hollow and Futile

BY SHABAIT | EDITORIAL

Al Jazeera: Preserving a Lucrative Anti- Eritrea Cottage Industry in Decline

Al Jazeera’s vile accusations against members of the Eritrean Diaspora, without providing any verifiable evidence to support its allegations, only undermines the network’s credibility.

Why is Al Jazeera rehashing an old tired story and repeating its falsehoods?

BY SOPHIA TESFAMARIAM | SHABAIT

In a recent article, Al Jazeera, quoting two notorious individuals with close ties to the regime in Ethiopia, accused members of the Eritrean Diaspora of being “spies for the government of Eritrea”. Similar accusations were made by these same groups and individuals in the past, but were dismissed when found to be outright lies.

Losing credibility everywhere. We had repeatedly urged Al Jazeera to refrain from biased and skewed reporting on Eritrea. But our request continues to be ignored.

Dear Mr. Al Anstey, CEO of Al Jazeera Media Network


,

I refer to a derogatory article: “Eritrea: Anecdotes of indefinite anarchy” that was posted in Al Jazeera’s  website on Thursday (July 6) last week.  The article in question essentially dwells on a barrage of vitriol against Eritrea by a notorious author who routinely engages in a smear campaign against the country.
