News sources and subjects given space or platforms in media outlets should also espouse qualities that foster the collective well-being of the society, even as they criticise what they deem not to be right.
However, as much as Kenya's lowly politicians are fond of doing it, it's not in the public's interest to use narcissistic language like:
"I demand to be immediately de-briefed on this constitutional lacuna"So, it's a bit strange that the very confrontational opinion piece above was published in a national paper, in what appears like its raw or original form.
Such articles need not be entirely censored.
But if it is okay to edit for clarity and space consideration, this national newspaper should find it appropriate to ensure the points in an article are also articulated in a civil way.
I demand to see more editorial guidance. Newsroom heads must enforce communication etiquette!
