Well, I've seen more than once how the Mainstream Media demonize good men and make saints out of demons, so I shouldn't really say with certainty
that Mugabe is a bad man. The fact is, to his people, he was, at least once, a freedom fighter.
And the fact is, he's dealing with the fallout of the end of one of the greatest white minority rule-nations of the Colonial era in Africa - which
isn't an easy thing to deal with, as we can see still both there and in South Africa still, not to mention in DRC. It leaves a lot of room for
failure, which in turn, leaves a lot of room for criticism, whether justified or not.
Edit to add for clarification:
Of course, Mainstream Media is experts in using such opportunities to shape the news.
