Genesis 2017: What a normal day looks like in Uganda

Chess

You see when it comes to media and it’s business of condensing society’s intricate features into words, animations or carefully layed letters, getting it right eludes many and only a few ever capture it live and in HD. For those that do, it’s hard to stay consistent.

For many a people news finds them through television, radio, and print.

Of these, television tends to be popular and overhypes stories whilst delivering the latest developments instantly in the moment.

Radio is more like an mp3 player who’s selection is set by another party to serve their purpose and so is never completely under your control. But it does meet the expectation of being as news source at some point.

Print, under which Newspapers fall, is more authoritative for the reason that it features digested stories and so unlikely to miss out important details unless it’s intended. And that’s why I think print is far more reliable than other forms of news dissemination.

A negative to it is it’s lag in terms of delivery especially for a generation on steroids that finds comfort in being the first to know.

All media is subject to manipulation and will serve it’s masters purpose.

But what’s the catch especially when one can predict the near future with instant updates?

It’s a wild chase that only attempts to offer mental excitement and only offering more and even more options of what could be without zeroiung into anything exact.
