The Real Answer: There is a gap because everything is owned by one party and one organization.
HOW DOES THE ETHIOPIAN GOVERNMENT RESPOND TO CHARGES THAT IT HAS ABUSED AND DETAINED JOURNALISTS AND POLITICAL OPPONENTS?
The Real Answer: By denying the facts. And changing the topic from Ethiopia to Eritrea.
WHAT ABOUT ALLEGATIONS OF GOVERNMENT-SANCTIONED BEATINGS OF MEMBERS OF THE OPPOSITION PARTY?
The Real Answer: We deny the facts by talking about Rodney King.
