Xenophobia: How world’s mainstream media are reporting it
The xenophobic attacks going on in South Africa has received little or no coverage from international media despite several videos and pictures trending on social media.
The headline of a report by CNN on the issue reads: ”Nigerians react to xenophobic attacks by looting South African stores”.
The headline shows a narrative that portray Nigeria as awful, whereas their action was instigated by the same treatment, even far worse, meted out to Nigerian businesses in South Africa.
As at press time, CNN’s mainstream media is yet to broadcast any report on the issue which is fast spiraling into a diplomatic face-off between Nigeria and South Africa.
