More than disaster

A "media roundtable" in Atlanta talked about worldwide communications and the problems Third World nations face. Miguel A. Albornoz, the UN ambassador from Ecuador, argued that such places can't attract investment if all the Western news agencies report are disasters, war and such.

It is the nature of the news business that the unusual gets the play. Routine , dull happenings don't. Still, all of us could do a better job of explaining what Third World nations are all about, how the people think and how that relates to us. There is more than disaster. That is what former Secretary of State Dean Rusk said when he told the conference if the notion of "no blood, no news" persist, the human race won't survive.
