Media Landscape Needs No Redemption - PUL Prexy Says
By Wilfred Gortor, LINA

MONROVIA, August 11 (LINA) - The president of the Press Union of Liberia, K. Abdullai Kamara, has said the image of the media needs no redemption as the ethical misconduct of a single media entity cannot be seen as an error of the entire Liberian media.

Kamara observed that it is unrealistic and a disservice to the media fraternity of Liberia for anyone to render a holistic indictment against the Liberian media based upon errors or ethical breaches committed by a single media institution.

The PUL president told the Liberia News Agency Tuesday that responses emanating from government against media houses should be centered more on ethical transgressions.

Kamara’s statement comes days after the U.S. Embassy rubbished false newspaper reports which claimed that a list containing names of corrupt African leaders was handed over by the U.S. President to the Nigerian Leader during a recent bilateral meeting between the two leaders in Ethiopia.

The PUL official’s statement also follows a recent ruling by the Supreme Court of Liberia in which it denied the Writ of Prohibition issued by the PUL against the Government of Liberia’s closure of the National Chronicle Newspaper and the subsequent decision by the court to reopen the paper.

However, Kamara emphasized that although the Chronicle Newspaper was not accorded due process prior to its closure by the government, the PUL welcomes the resultant ruling of the Supreme Court.

He blamed the emergence of propagandas in newspapers on what he termed as the workings of some prominent members of the Liberian society which, according to him, are intended to spur political confrontations.
