The role of Media in our social and political situation is in many ways identical to that of a referee in a boxing match.
In this match ,the contenders are the Government and the People.
In this fight,it's their duty to maintain law and order which include
1)Warning the Government when they break the rules there by serving as a Vigilante.
2)Reminding the people of their rights there by empowering them with knowledge.
But in my country, the referee is not contented with his job. He has begun to realise HE AIN'T GOT NO GAME IF THERE AIN'T NO GAME.
If they can keep the fight go on ,their position becomes more crucial and they become more powerful.
So powerful that they can strangle a government and brain wash a Nation.
So our Referee here, has slowly retrieved himself from the ring and has been making a little something for himself from the blood spilled in the ring.
There ain't no end to this dogfight cos the referee has been
1)taking sides (when they should be impartial)
2)blowing things out of proportion (when they should be truthful)
3)working for himself (when they should be working for the People)
SO BEWARE THE MEDIA COS NOTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS TO BE!
AND DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU HEAR!
