In the past years, news has turned from subjective to being very opinionated. Bill O'Reilly, Keith Olberman are examples of very opinionated pundits who can also be sometimes biased. On the other hand, a blog like The Huffington Post has become a model for many news websites, though it leans toward the left. According to Mr. Alan Bandawe, the founder of AfricaMatata.Com, the blog will be breaking the news as they happen around the world with an African perspective. AfricaMatata has reporters in Malawi,Rwanda,Congo, Zimbabawe,South Africa, England and the USA. In a press release forwarded to Malawi Current News Blog, Mr Bandawe said that Africans should not always rely on American or British news sources like the BBC, CNN or MSNBC when they are looking for African related breaking news.The Africa Matata website which was officially launched earlier today has received praise from many Africans in the diaspora. From May 2009, Africa Matata will chronicle articles written by orphans living in refugee camps in Central Africa.
