Media bias against gov’t is obvious – Omane Boamah

By on
omane-boamahThe Minister of Communications, Dr Edward Omane Boamah has reiterated that there was an “obvious media bias against the government,” which was very well known.

In a radio interview on Joy FM Tuesday morning, the Communications Minister maintained that there were a number of times that he had to respond to calls to engage not just Multimedia radio stations but several other media organisations on their biases.

He was responding to a publication in the Ovation Magazine in which President Mahama said a group of media practitioners have been “blocking” and “distorting” his developmental agenda.

Dr Omane Boamah insisted: “The obvious bias the President has spoken about it, it is obvious and it is not lost, no one can challenge this.

Asked to put out names of media personnel the President referred to as a “cabal” Dr Boamah declined and said “I’m sure if the President wanted to put out names, he would have done that but this bias is very well known.”

He urged the media to be a little more receptive and flexible in treating “good news also coming from government and the NDC as a political party.”
