Ethiopian Journalist Dismantles One-Sided Western Coverage of TPLF & War In Tigray


The situation in Ethiopia has continued to escalate, with accusations of genocide, warnings of famine, and threats of sanctions. What began as a war between the TPLF in Tigray and the Ethiopian government is spilling into neighboring areas as the TPLF appears to launch more offensives in the Afar and Amhara regions. The growing violence threatens to destabilize Ethiopia, Africa's second most populous country, and the greater Horn region should it continue unabated.


To help us understand what's happening inside the country and to address the one-sided Western media coverage that places all the blame on the Ethiopian government, Rania Khalek was joined by Brook Abdu, an Ethiopian journalist and senior editor of The Reporter, an Ethiopian news outlet.
