Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Secretary General Edwin Sifuna has blasted The Standard newspaper over a controversial headline that dragged ODM into Uhuru Kenyatta-led Jubilee party problems.
The newspaper on Tuesday ran a story titled ” The Wars in Uhuru and Raila parties”.
Sifuna says the story under the titled is all about Jubilee but ODM were lumped together.
He says he read the story keenly looking to see who was fighting who in ODM and over what, but the writer of the story did not say.
Sifuna is now accusing the Mombasa road-based media house of misunderstanding balance when it comes to news.
He says that the media house understands balance as including everyone in their stories.
“@StandardKenya understands balance to mean including everyone in their stories. This story is about Jubilee…but it had to “balance” so we were lumped together. I read looking to see who was fighting who in ODM and over what…the writer Moses Nyamori doesn’t say. Takataka tu,” he tweeted.Do you have any story you would like to share?
