Q&A #1: 1.(a) Regarding the coverage of the genocide in Darfur, our authors suggest that the case could use something called interpretive sufficiency. Explain this. (b) Subsequently, the authors call for “authentic disclosure.” Explain this. (c) What “unending difficulties” have reporters had in covering the genocide?
A sufficient interpretation opens up public life in all its dynamic dimensions. A newsworthy account that makes justice explicit represents complex cultures and religions adequately. The people involved at all levels are portaged authentically without stereotype or simplistic judgements. Using authentic disclosure, journalists disclose the essence of the events or, in other words, get to the heart of the matter. Some of the unending difficulties include: reporters struggling to get Visas to Sudan, the danger that comes along with reporting in Darfur, and networks presuming lack of interest by viewers in Africa.
