The constant backlash received by the print media in Ghana, especially bloggers because of the belief of a cross section of the Ghanaian populace that they are always churning out some junk stories out there for the readers has caused celebrated media personality, Sammy Baah Flex to send out a sweet reply to such critics.
In a post of the embattled Zylofon Media PRO sighted by News.ghanamotion.com on Twitter, he makes the point that bloggers are not to be blamed for this perceived problem. In his opinion, they (bloggers) on numerous occasions try to get more serious information from people who have it, to put out there but usually, their efforts are thwarted.
The Flex Newspaper boss, therefore, called on the people who want to apportion blame to do so but make sure it is directed to the right quarters. The right quarters Sammy started as the people who have the information but fail to pick up their calls anytime they even call them to demand it.
This post is certainly a call on the parliament of Ghana to strive harder in their quest and pass the Right to Information Bill (RTI bill) which has been in and out of the honorable house over the years.
