I now doubt the validity of calls to stop criticizing government’s slow pace of relief operations. it looks like criticism, specially if coming from foreign media, is just the thing to get our bureaucrats to get a sense of urgency. Seems to me, Anderson Cooper and the rest of the CNN and BBC reporters on the scene are doing the victims a lot of favor. We ought to unite as a people to get through this tragedy but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t point out how things could and should be made better along the way. As for the quality of our national leadership, that is a given already and we have enough experience with them to know their capabilities. There should be time enough to deal with them in 2016. As for now, constructive criticism like what the foreign and yes, local media reporters are doing should be fine.
