my media diary

I am going to keep a media diary on natural disasters in Less Economically Developed Countries (LEDCs). This is a very interesting topic because natural disasters, while occuring all around the world, have hugely different effects on the communities they strike, depending largely on wealth and development. What seems so obviously natural is in fact largely political, to the point that famines can be argued to be solely political occurences and therefore utterly avoidable. In my media diary I aim to look at the way natural disasters in LEDCs are reported in the media and discuss how biased they are.

  1. I would just like to add a quick comment i saw your blog about Haiti, and i just thought that if you are interssted in such matters that i should tell you this.Grenada a tiny island in the Caribbean was the worst hit by Hurricane Ivan 5/6 weeks ago my parents live over there and the British and American governments have no intentions oof helping the people.This island is 20 miles long and the eye passed right over it, devastatinbg homes and public buildings, 90% according to reports.The fact that these governments arene helping is in fact political if you look up the history of Grenada you will see why.The media covered the story for a couple of days now all is forgotten.People are still homeless and no electricity is up yet the media ignore it – its old news.If this was America more would be done.Amy.J
