THE BIG Q! WHY DON'T THIKA STORIES MAKE IT TO THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA?

For quite some while now, the mainstream media has given Thika news a wide berth. Barely does any of the town's news ever make it to their screens or on the print media. I don't understand whether it is by design or just some coincidence. 

So much has been happening in this town, some of which qualifying as major TV and Newspaper Headlines by virtue of their intensity. However, none of them ever meets the editors' eye and for those that do, they are just presented as screen shots or news briefs in the case of print media. Funny enough, in all these instances, quite a good number of journalists from all media stations (as evident from the labels on their equipment) are seen shoving and pushing to get the best shot at the news items.

It is quite apparent that only news from certain sources ever make it to the print and whatever is printed is at times either exaggerated or distorted to suit a particular motive. Thika people never get value for the money they pay for in buying these dailies.

Just a thought!
May be, with the putting up of the Witeithie Power Plant, the tapes recorded during these shots get affected by electric magnetism before reaching Nairobi thus rendering their contents un-newsworthy.
