SIMPLY SHOWBIZ: Ghanaian Bloggers Are Using Reckless Headlines - MzGee.

Simply Showbiz is hosted by MzGee on TV3 every Saturday at 11Am. Today was another Simply Showbiz discussion on the topic "Blogging in Ghana; Checking the excesses".

According to her, Some people have emphasized the urgent need for industry stakeholders to sensitize and educate bloggers on the need to be guided by professionalism in their work. Because Ghanaian Bloggers are using using reckless and exaggeration Headlines and sometimes misleading content. 

She even cited and example where a blogger wrote, "Very Sad, Jojo Antwi is Dead". Surprisingly, when she click to read the content, the content was all about Kojo Antwi from Walewale and not the Antwi she knew so she was disappointed. Damn!! 

Halifax on the other hand opposed her point. According to Halifax, no nobody was born perfect Journalist nor perfect Blogger, it's just about training and more time for one to understand their job. So she should not say all bloggers but some. Perhaps the new ones. 

"Nana Akufo Addo's brother sues Journalists for defamation" are they also bloggers? Halifax asked MzGee. 

Moreover, Halifax added that, Kojo Antwi is not a name for one person in Ghana here whereby you will say it's not the person you know. 'Is that one not human being?'. Hence provided the person dead in Walewale is called Kojo Antwi, then there is nothing criminal about it. 

What is your take on this? You can drop your opinion in the comments section.
