How media portrays PNG

Its funny how the media around the world focus's on the negatives of PNG and very little on the positves such as the tradition, the people, the environment and the uniqueness of the Land.
I was talking to someone today about Papua New Guinea and all they could talk about were the raskols who walked around with guns killing people, the corruption, the 'rubbish education'..

Huh?? Is this really only what PNG is about...NO!!! There are so many other unique things to Papua New Guinea than you think there is..things that you would'nt expect to see in other parts of the world..This is what I was saying to him...It was actually his first time to hear all this which made me realise that the is the media portrays Papua New Guinea as a 'bad' , 'dangerous country...Well yes it can be dangerous (like many places around the world) but it can also be an adventure...a chance to explore different cultures and learn about their traditions and 'daily life' ....The media shows great BIAS towards Papua New Guinea and actually gives it a bad name..(which is also a disadvantage to the Toursim industry in PNG)..

Dont Judge a book by its cover....(Dont judge PNG on whats shown on the media...its not all what you think it is)
Get packing
and get your butt over to Papua New Guinea

Update on news

Enough about my life for now ... lets focus on some news about whats happenin around PnG..(just let me tell you guys that at this very moment I am lookin at a bright colourful fascinating) ok ok back to the real post..Well about the not dissing the govt im re-emphasisng the point and news at which is being published in the daily news of the Post Courier (PNG newspapaer).. An important issue we go,,

The Rural people of Papua New Guinea ( the people who live in outside of town area) are struggling to the point at which they are not able to purchase the daily needs like Food,,water and basic utensils on a daily or weekly basis..well this may be becoz of the govt and how they distribute their services to the people.. PNG has been an independent country for ova 35 years yet they are not delivering services to the poeple properly..and they are not sufficeint,,
This is a big problem ....well what do you think?? Was it a mistake for PNg to become independent??? Or do they need to get there act into gear and get the desired results that is wanted and will support the People of Papua New Guinea....????? Is the govt failing to distribute the goods and services that is needed??? these are the questions that are crying out for answers...
