Dear Larry Madowo, Wallace Kantai and Victoria Rubadiri
The news is not about you… *that’s all*
I’d wish to end there and publish this post but let me explain a bit by copy pasting something by Tim Njiru;
“Dear Mr & Mrs News Presenter, CNN, The BBC, Aljazeera English among other international News Broadcasters will bring you all the news, sports, business and weather in 30 Minutes. Our Local channel (esp NTV) will be dragging at story Number 5, 27 minutes later. Reason…the presenters are spewing loads of their personal agenda on-air thinking I will buy that? I don’t know about you, but that unscripted “Add-lib” is eating into the station’s reputation as being credible. If you really think you’re all that, I challenge you to have your own show and solicit your ratings there. The content in a News bulletin is not about the presenters, its about setting the news agenda without leaving me with more Questions than answers. Kindly drop that garbage and get to work.”
What happened to “letting the news maker talk?” … that was one of the things I was taught as being a great skills in interview techniques…or that ended with exams?
And Larry Madowo went on another argument contest with Charles Owino the police spokesman the other day and Owino just fell short of calling him a noise maker!!
