Albania: Reactions to the Sunday Times Article

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Albania, International Relations, Media & Journalism, Protest, Travel

annabengan of annasblog reposts the Sunday Times Magazine's article on Albania [1], and the “official reply/explanation [2] from the chief editor of Sunday Times.” annabengan's Albanian friends thought the article was “fair” – while her non-Albanian friends considered it “bad journalism.” One reader wrote [3]: “[…] if this were written about a poor decrepit black neighborhood in a ghetto somewhere, it would not have been as condemning or condescending; there would have been at least a little understanding of why the squalor is so present and a bit of compassion for the people trapped in that cycle.” Our Man In Tirana links to other responses [4] that the article has received.
