AFrica news on Yahoo

New Age Hippie writes a letter to Yahoo complaining about their lack of coverage of African news or rather the bunching together of everything negative under “Africa”…Of the 31 headlines on Yahoo Africa news today, only 12 of these have anything to do with Africa. This means that OVER 50% OF YOUR NEWS ON AFRICA COULD TECHNICALLY BE CATEGORIZED AS LIES AND DECEIT which only goes on to propagate Africa’s negative image. I mean, surely what does US’s war on Iraq have to do with Africa? Why not post it up on the “American News” section?
