Ugandan News Papers are being strange

The writing on New Vision has become so bad I will be skipping most of their articles.  However, here are their headlines.  I have a problem with bad writing. OK?  If I have to shut off all of the media in Uganda, I will still get the key news.  New Vision and Monitor think they have a monopoly.  Most dailies depend on advertising to survive.  These two papers do not rely on ADs,  For one thing New Vision is government owned so there is nothing to discuss there.  The Monitor used to be independent but I have no idea what happened except the latest big story of number fudging for a poll that we did not need.  So these two dailies are really government owned.  A strong government needs a strong opposition.  I do not think that taking over media allows for a strong opposition which then allows for a strong opposition.  The world knows who owns Chimp and Red but I am not worried about those ones anyway.   If New Vision and Monitor continue at what they are doing, you will be making a mockery of Uganda.  Stop it now.
