NAM countries start news service to counter ‘unfair’ coverage

A group of developing countries have started a new news service called “NAM News Network”. This will be an internet based news service. Most of the countries are members of the NAM….the Non-Aligned Movement, which was a potent third bloc, in the days of the Cold War.

As the press release informs

Malaysia’s national news agency Bernama will host the “NAM News Network,” a joint effort of the 114 member countries of the Nonaligned Movement.

“We can be the balance to counter the manipulation of the Western media and to confront their influence on us,” Cuba’s ambassador to Malaysia, Pedro Monzon Barata, was quoted as saying by Bernama.

He said NNN could reduce dependency of developing countries for news coverage on the Western-controlled media, which he said often painted a negative picture.
