At the inauguration of The Media centre this Friday,18th February, 2022, the speaker revealed parliament will put major emphasis on reviewing the  law that backs the functions of the National Media Commission so that they commission could effectively regulate journalism practice across the country.

The speaker also expressed his discontent at how certain media reportage misconstrue information and misinform the general public in their attempt to reaching the audience within time.”Often times, in your quest, as journalists, to try and disseminate the information promptly to beat the deadline, you make some mistakes. Information, sometimes, turn out not to be entirely accurate. You end up making some misrepresentations, at times impugning the integrity and reputation of others”.

“The legal space and the legal regime for the media anticipated this and has prescribed a way out. That is why we have the National Media Commission (NMC) and Parliament will focus on the NMC. We need to urgently revise the law for the NMC for the commission to be effective”, the speaker stated.

He also cautioned certain politicians to desist from manipulating journalists to make reportage in their favour and also stop their attempts of regulating journalism in the country.”As a lawyer, in the early days of my practice and also my political life, I was compelled to take several media houses to court using the rule of law, not the rule of man”, he said.

“I dare say that any attempt by any politician hiding behind the Police institution to act as the standard-bearer of ethical and professional journalism or a regulator of journalism practice in this country is not only a pretender but also megalomaniac,” Bagbin babbled.
