The third monitoring report prepared by the Media council of Tanzania (MCT) is out and the main element which sticks out as positive is that the media has avoided to report hate speech.

Though still there are some media outlets which lean towards parties – such as the ruling party or Chadema – the Ukawa Coalition, the report portrays general improvement on how media covers campaign rallies from the presidential hopefuls , contestants of parliamentary and Councilor seats.

The report covers the period from September 18 to 24, 2015.

Sampled newspapers for monitoring are Zanzibar Leo, Daily News, The Guardian, The Citizen, Habari Leo, Nipashe, Mwananchi, Uhuru and Mzalendo, Tanzania Daima Mtanzania, Raia Tanzania, JamboLeo and Majira.

Electronic media monitored are Star TV, TBC 1, ITV, Radio One, TBC Taifa, Clouds, Radio Free Africa and for Zanzibar monitored electronic media are ZBC TV, Radio Zenj FM and Hits FM.

The media outlets are measured on issues of impartiality, professionalism, public exposure to issues and pictorial presentation.

The general trend for media outlets which are supposed to be public media tend to lean so much on the ruling party stories, though they do not dismiss stories from the opposition mainly Ukawa coalition.

Apart from the main parties, candidates from other parties are also covered, though not as prominently.

Please note the 2015 Elections Media Monitoring Report of September 18 -24, 2015 can be accessed on the Website of the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) www.mct.or.tz.
