Is the Haitian media playing the role of "pouse difé" in the current political crisis?

Growing up in Haiti, I used to see adults pushing two kids to fight by grabbing a handful of dust and placing it right in between them. One would smack the dust onto the other's face and, boom, the fight starts. This is what the Haitian media is doing these days for the most part.

I listen to the Haitian Radio all day long and I can tell you, many of the journalist have that handful of dust right in between President Jovenel Moise and the opposition.

Many radio journalists in Haiti do a lot more than report the news, they spice it up with their own opinion and, I hate to say, their opinion is for Jovenel Moise to pack his bags.

Watching a good fight, placing the dust between those who are fighting instead of encouraging them to get along, unfortunately, it's in our blood. whether or not Haiti as a country wins or looses, no none cares, as long as we get a good kick out of it, or a measly profit, we will deal with the consequences later.

Haitian Creole: Eske w pa panse La Presse Haitienne gen yon wòl "Pouse Difé" l ap jwe nan kriz politik peyi a ap travèse nan jou sa yo? Lè m te ti moun, gen gran moun ki te konn pete yon ponyen pousyè nan mitan de ti moun ki kare batay. Se sa m santi anpil jounalis ap fe la.
