Lack of Expertise
The http://www.fijisun.com.fj/?p=222486 AG blames the media for the lack of analysis in the media on economic issues related to the forthcoming election.
He is right in saying that there's a limited analysis but wrong in blaming the journalists. Few are sufficiently qualified to be able to analyse economic issues, and until the media pays better and attracts more suitably qualified people to journalism, the situation is unlikely to change.
Meanwhile, the media will have to rely on expertise from outside, particularly from the universities. It is hoped that academics will be sufficiently dispassionate to analyse these issues objectively and not be carried away with political spleen.
