The media can be described as the fourth organ of government since they play the role of intermediaries between the government and the citizens. They interpret the formulated policies to the citizens and alarms the problem of the citizens to the government.there is no argument that the media men and women have party of interest, respectively. It is their right to vote and be voted, a typical example is the current minister for information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah who was then a media man.
It seems that it has gotten a great influence on their process of administering, from a critical observance on the leading media platforms in the country, most of them broadcast their news in favor of their group of interest. Politically, they defend their parties by broadcasting partially.Some even tend to speak against a political party and praise the other. Sometimes serial callers are allowed to talk for long if only it is in their favor.
Instead of them to abreast the their listeners with issues of concern, they rather argue on unnecessary issues which brings no result.
Now the media can never be described as an independent body because it has been influenced by their interest not the interest of their listeners.
