Tsegaye Tadesse is an insult to the great media institution he works for. Last week, the Reuters reporter kept silent when the court in charge of the treason and genocide trial decided that the CUD council members should defend themselves against the charge of outrage against constitutional order.

Today, he got the story that would put the government and the court in positive light. His headline was predictable but false.

Ethiopia treason trial judge frees 25 journalists

The number of journalists who were freed today are nine. 25 is the total number of people who were released.

This is not the first time Tsegaye acted as the propagandist for the government. From predicting a huge victory to EPRDF in election 2005 to continually disseminating the myth that Ethiopia is on course to become a middle income country in 20 years, Tsegaye’s spins and stories are eloquent testimonies to what he stands for.
