Flog me if the Nigerian media are not for hire, at least some of them are. Not a day goes by without a notable print or TV medium blasting a headline that is patently procured. How do I know they are bought? The signs are not tell-tale, they are shout it loud. Test No. 1: If there is a ‘news worthy’ business or corporate article in a medium, check the others out. They will be sporting the same press release, with the same headline, intro and copy. Even with the same picture and caption.
