  • World Press Freedom Day Op-Ed By United States Ambassador Terence McCulley ( May 3, 2015)

    Since the beginning of 2015, I have visited numerous media organizations in Côte d’Iviore, talking about the United States Embassy’s number one priority for the country in 2015: a peaceful, inclusive and transparent presidential election in October of this year. Throughout these visits, I was reminded of the positive role media can and should play in the betterment of society; keeping a watchful eye on the practices of the government and politicians, and ensuring that society is kept informed, educated and protected. However, the media can also be used as a force that engenders conflict, violence and even hate against others, as was the case in Côte d’Ivoire during the post-electoral crisis of 2011.
