Ivory Coast media profile – Yahoo News Canada
Cote d’Ivoire’s long-running political divisions continue to be reflected in its media landscape. Most outlets are partisan in their political coverage.
The media were accused of inflaming violence following a coup in 1999 and during civil wars in 2002-2007 and 2010-2011.
In 2020, many journalists were detained while covering protests and violence during and after the presidential election in October of that year.
Cote d’Ivoire was among the last countries in West Africa to liberalise its broadcast media. As a result, the Ivorian state remains a major media player. The opposition has limited access to official outlets, even during election campaigns when it is entitled by law to “equitable media access”.
Most of the main commercial TV channels have owners with links to the ruling coalition. Radio has traditionally been the main medium, but online news sources are increasingly popular.
BBC World Service in French is available on FM, including in Abidjan (94.3). There are also FM relays of Radio France Internationale and Voice of America.
Around 46% of the population have internet access. There are no formal restrictions on internet use. Facebook is the most popular social network.

Letter: Media focus on Moe-Trudeau spat over Saskatoon visit a failure – Saskatoon Star-Phoenix
I live in Saskatoon and regularly listen to/read news from a variety of media outlets — the StarPhoenix, Globe and Mail, CBC radio and TV, CTV, Global TV and CKOM radio. I’m often proud of the work that you all do.
But I was very sad to see that almost all the media coverage of Trudeau’s visit to Saskatoon to announce federal support for rare earth mining in Saskatchewan was primarily focused on the game-playing of Trudeau and Moe.
This announcement is a really important move, for the global future of sustainable energy, for the economy of Saskatchewan, and it deserved full attention to the subject itself.
Where are the rare earth reserves in Sask.? What are potential issues in mining, processing and transporting them? What are the market dynamics with other competitors?
I would love to have heard some in-depth interviews with geologists, battery manufacturers, commodity brokers, Indigenous and other leaders in the areas where the mineral reserves are. But we got very little of that.
