Media personality calls Kenyans 'stupid'?

25 February 2015, 18:50 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - Tensions in the media have been running high since the analogue shutdown that saw most of the industry’s biggest players being locked out, and forced to move their content online.

The shift away from analogue has seen the smaller fish such as K24 and KBC rise to the top of the viewership list.

The frustration caused by this switch off though has spread fast, causing many Kenyans to point fingers at these locked out media houses claiming that they are trying to stifle the digital growth.

Larry Madowo, one of Kenya’s leading journalists has had enough of this nonsense from Kenyans, calling the “airheads” in an article that he has just published.

This attack on Kenyans has caused quite a reaction from Kenyans on social media, most of whom hit back at the journalist.

In his article he wrote things like “Everybody and their grandmother turned into a post doctorate-level expert on digital migration in just one week.” And “Airheads who don’t even know what DVBT2 stands for became overnight analysts on all matters digital migration, speaking with comical authority on why Nation, Standard and Royal Media were resisting change.

‘Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups,’ George Carlin once said. Is he justified in calling some Kenyans ‘stupid’ for their reaction to the media lockout?
