    Jeune Afrique accused of Black Market Journalism!

    The regular citizen may never have heard of the black market of journalism. It is however a common practice in the media (African, but not only), especially for big media platforms, particularly print media.

    Unlike the almost free Internet, printing a magazine and distributing it across a continent costs a fortune - and advertising can not sustain the magazine, as was the case in the 1990s, so some of these print media resort to black market journalism, which is publishing paid articles to push a particular agenda.

    According to Opinion Magazine, the February edition of the Jeune Afrique Magazine is all about Black Market Journalism because the first lady of Cameroon, Chantal Biya, and some high profiled politicians in the country are "attacked" in the Magazine.

    They accuse Jeune Afrique Magazine of defamation, manipulation and propaganda against the first lady, for claims they believe are politically motivated.
