Media critique: Al Jazeera's "The New Scramble for Africa"

Al Jazeera English's Marwan Bashara hosts a compelling episode of the documentary series "Empire" on "The New Scramble for Africa." The program is yet another in a series of high quality programs from AJE that explore China's engagement on the continent. Although Bashara does an excellent job in exploring the issue from multiple sides, he also frames the issue in dated, anachronistic language that ultimately harms the show's underlying message.
