The need has arisen for you, I mean management to put in place a system that guides your reporters and presenters on the way to be fair and balance in your programmes. Your media house means different things to various Individuals and bodies. It depends on individual perception. Head or tail, a media house owe the public the responsibility of saying the truth.
