Fake News.

Due to the rise of fake content being circulated, most editors are very curious to know where journalists source their stories from. They often ask questions like, " What do you know? " and " How do you know it? ". This is not because they don't trust the journalists, but to ensure that the stories are verified. Most media houses/journalists are sometimes misled by their sources of information. Stories have to be counter-checked because almost everyone wants to avoid being sued for defamation.

 Some of us knew what we wanted to be growing up. However, some of us did not. Growing up, all I wanted to be was a journalist. Wear gorgeous clothes and read the news! For me, that was the coolest thing to do. Going through campus, I still had my dream and I pictured myself( looking fabulous) and impacting masses with information. I wanted to write stories so powerful that would revolutionize the media industry. The short of it is that, no I did not get to be that anchor on the TV. I'm doing something else that I never pictured for myself that I absolutely love. If you are like me, the girl not on TV but passionate about Journalism, here are some career paths in Journalism that you should consider as well.

Animation Industry in Kenya.Top 5 animations

In the early 90's, there were only two TV stations in Kenya, the government-owned Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) and the privately-owned Kenya Television Network (KTN). The broadcasting at KBC commenced at 4:00 pm and the station would be switched off at 12:00 am.

Very few local programs were aired and even fewer animations were on the screens, with most of them being of American or British origin such as Danger Mouse and He-Man. Over the years, we’ve seen a rise in the number of animations produced and released locally.
