De andere kant van het verhaal

Wanneer men naar internationaal nieuws kijkt, krijgt men vaak alleen maar een kant van het verhaal te zien. Dit is meestal de kant van de journalist en de nieuwszender die het nieuws verslaat. Maar wat als die geen objectieve bril heeft, wat als er andere belangen spelen? Dan krijg je dus een subjectief verhaal via een objectieve bron.

Hieronder het verhaal over Libie. Niet hoe slecht hun leider was en hoe terecht het nu is dat hij is overleden. Nee, meer een idee over hoe ondankbaar het volk is over wat deze man heeft bereikt. Snap me niet verkeerd, ik weet niet genoeg over de kwestie om te oordelen, maar wil wel een paar zaken met jullie delen.
