Media: The theories that mock reality


FANTASTIC WRITING. HAVEN'T READ SOMETHING LIKE THIS
IN A VERY LONG TIME. THE TRUTH IS THE WAY MEDIA PLURALISM TOOK OFF IN GHANA WASN'T THE BEST, BUT THE PRESSURES OF THE MOMENT ACCOUNTED FOR THAT. IF THE CONDITION OF MEDIA EXPERIENCE HAD BEEN A FACTOR IN THE OWNERSHIP OF RADIO STATIONS, THE POLITICAL ELITE COULD NOT HAVE SEIZED CONTROL TO PUT US IN SUCH PERIL. NOW GHANA'S MEDIA SPACE IS SO POLITICIZED, WE ARE ALL AFRAID OF A LOOMING RWANDA. WHY? BECAUSE ETHICS WAS THE FIRST CASUALTY WHEN WE STARTED. AND THIS HAS BECOME SO WIDESPREAD THAT NOW THE PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED ARE RATHER MIMICKING THE UNTRAINED IN OUR MEDIA SPACE. AS SUCH ALL OTHER THINGS ARE FOLLOWING SUIT.EVEN MEDIA BUYING[PLACING ADVERTS] IS NO LONGER PROFESSIONALLY DONE. UNLESS WE TAKE MEASURES TO QUICKLY REMEDY THE SITUATION, W E ARE IN FOR SOME TROUBLING MOMENTS.
