Bernard Mornah National Chairman of the People’s National Convention (PNC), has condemned what he says is the Media’s penchant for Bad News.
Bernard Mornah has described that the media has not played well role in our society because the media will always wait for the bad news about politics and the media has much more time board cast the bad news.
Actually, he has talked about the Kumasi Old Tafo cemetery clashes which, the news media have broadcast much more time. In his view, the branding of the agitating youth in the feud as Muslim youth could have heightened the tensions and attracted others tilted towards the religion to join in the clashes.
According to him, the media has again and again used the word that the Muslim youth clashes, which is a very bad thing for our society, if such things are said then any Muslim who doesn’t want Islam to be defeated could just rush there and join to defend the religion.
Moreover, he added that, “In the same vein, when Ebola broke out, you listened to media reportage and you get the impression that the Media just wanted the disease here.”
Bernard Mornah has described that “Sometimes after a false alarm on the disease, they will report that Ebola is not here yet and I keep asking myself do they really want the disease to be registered in Ghana.”
Mornah also criticized the National Peace Council for not attending to every other community tensions in the country with speed like they did with the situation in Kumasi.
