CCTV Africa

Finding video news about Africa is difficult. France24 is in French. No traditional American media outlet has a presence there. Al Jazeera sometimes has decent stuff. And Vice videos are a bit too dudebro for me.

CCTV Africa fills the void, a bit. You've got high def cameras, which actually give you a glimpse of what these faraway countries look like. Most of the stories are benign so there's no overt propaganda going on. Give it a try.

I find it so hard to believe anything from China state media... Same reason I won't watch anything from RT. But you are probably right with these videos... By the way, there is a France24 English Channel on YouTube!
