AUDIENCE PERCEPTION OF NEWS REPORTAGE BY GOVERNMENT OWNED MEDIA ORGANIZATION IN NIGERIA; (A STUDY OF NTA AND EBS BENIN)

ABSTRACT

This research is to assess ownership on media freedom and professionalism (a study of independent radio and television, benin city).It argues that the media ownership climate in Nigeria is very cloudy, and not conducive for optimum operations, especially for private media. Government uses its regulatory agencies to frustrate media freedom. The scenario is not a lot different from centralized control. Government is urged to encourage free enterprise and allow a level playing field for private and public media firms. In carrying out this research project, the works of public relation experts was reviewed; questionnaires and interview were used to collect information. It was discovered that government officials and agents interfere with their operations; at such, they are made to seek to protect government‟s interest at all times. These facts, some journalist lamented are contrary to what it should be, owing to the fact that public media is saddled with the responsibility to hold the government responsible and accountable to the people instead of being government mouth piece. In view of the finding, Government should stop unnecessary and undue interference in the media.
