Thumbs up Nyasa Times for Taking responsibility on issues of Story credibility

I believe that in a democratic state the media has a responsibility to respect the state's prerogative in releasing sensitive details as were reported on on our Mose wa Lero this week. True or not (now that you have retracted this news item from your site), the media doesn't have to agree but respect the State's prerogative because such details have various implications across the board.

Then again there is a very fine line between a tabloid and a news house. Sensationalism serves the appetite of the few and exists to make money and more of it on the expense of the majority. I may not always agree with your viewpoints Nyasa Times but I have come to respect your presence online, bringing news to Malawians in the diaspora Paja a Malawi okonda dziko lawo amalimanga, yes, critically of course koma with responsibilities
