Zimbabwe: Media bias 'a concern' : "The Harare-based project said it noted with concern that the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation showed no sign of observing either Zimbabwean law or Southern African Development Community guidelines requiring it to provide fair and balanced coverage. Nor had it tried to publicise important voter information on the complicated electoral process.
MMPZ said that last week ZTV devoted 37 minutes in its news bulletins to 'approving coverage' of the ruling Zanu-PF, compared to a combined total of just four minutes for the Movement for Democratic Change and the newly formed Zimbabwe Development Party (ZDP). Although new presidential hopeful, former finance minister Simba Makoni, received 18 minutes on ZTV's news bulletins, this was overwhelmingly dominated by reports chastising him for breaking ranks with the ruling party and challenging President Robert Mugabe."
