NTA News: Do You Still Have Faith In Them?

Its happening again in NTA like it happened in the Tail end of Abacha days. NTA showed Nigerians how creative they can be with computer animations. They turned Abacha's military cap to civillian one, they only provide us with news of people who supported Abacha for civillian President. They told the whole world that Nigerians will die for Abacha. They said all sorts of thing.  When it all happened as God wanted it. They came up with the story of how Abacha's men censored their programmings.

Now its happening again. We are only seeing news of how the people supported Third Term. What do we believe now. Is there some cencorship going on? They should tell us. Or do we have to conclude? My question remains, do we still have faith on NTA?

it is unfortunate that such a crappy and full of lies entity is labelle Nigerian Television.It is supposed to be the PDP TV becos all the recent and current events on it have been PDP,PDP,PDP.Most Nigerians think that Nigerian operates a one party system becos of the emphasis of NTA on PDP. They have even turned Dbanj's song to an NTA Jingle. They are a television for incumbency.One will only wonder that with all the support for PDP they remain the crappiest television Station on Earth.

OK Texazzpete, so here's a mathemtical formula you can use to work out the truth:

(Western stories + NTA stories)/2

See? NTA still has its use in providing a necessary variable to solve this equation.

The thread is good. When one pay attention and dig deep, it becomes plain that the editorial content and pursuit are controlled (to undermine public welfare) even by Western settings. Sad to say, Nigeria is far from Free.

Got your point, but with a twist!

Tell NTA to report/counter the ills of the Western world and their cover-ups that are geared to divide Nigeria oneness that lead to mass stealing and intellectual exodus to their world.

Downplaying government shortcomings from top (yes OBJ) to bottom by sugercoating, facts every 12 years old boy laugh at, and really insults the mind. Plus mind you, it is bad journalism.

I don't believe in all this taking side thing you guys are talking about, i believe they are casting the news the way they are meant to do it.

The press is not meant to take side with anybody but speak openly, i don't watch NTA news but i think they ok.

I watched NTA news in Maryland, during thanksgiving. Apparently, if you are a Nigerian, and reside in the Maryland area of the USA and are a subscriber of Comcast, chances are you could request for and have NTA news/program on TV. I was just watching Naija News in Yankee, part of my time in Maryland, to the consternation of my cousin. I even watched the Nigerian version of "Who wants to be a millionaire" on the Nigerian channel.

You cant expect a govt. owned news agency to turn against its owner by reporting on the negativity of their governement, without any serious repercussion. That is Africa for you, but even in developed countries like the USA, it is also the 'publisher that dictates the tune of the media'. Or do you think that if you were working for magazine, owned by a mogul with a penchant for scandal, you will be given the liberty to plaster their shortcomings on the front pages of the paper? I doubt it.

NTA is a government controlled station. They will therefore always be biased towards the people in power.

No, I will rather depend on Channels TV, AIT or better still MITV for my news. I always believe that the versionof NTA is not authentic compare to those of Channels, AIT or MITV.

Right from the Begining i Hate watching their news they Broadcast news as if they were Moruning,all of the editing are so poor infact i have tuned out their channel from the Tv save only NTA2 thats just managing,but they are still all liers,they received all their orders from above.If you are a current viewer of The president speaks every First Sunday of the month you will know that they are all taking directives from the baba himself.We only need to thanks other channels like Channels Tv,AIT,STV,etc,But NTA abeg forget them.even their web will tell you more of their unseriousness check www.nta.com.ng and compare with their present logo as if it still matches with this present one.Share of the nation.

@biggjoe. my man use any word but faith.

NTA News is disgusting, full of lies and half truth just like in the Abacha days.

What happened is not what is reported.

They want to stasify their paymasters.

They have become PDP misinformation and public relations outfit.

The mistake they are making is that most people that watch/listen to the NEWS, also read newspapers and interact with fellow Nigerians. They are not the only source of information.

Like BoB Marley said: You can decevied some of the people some of the time but u can never deceive all the people all the time.

Long live Nigeria.

I do not have faith in NTA News? their reporting is too one sided. They never show any contrary opinion. Infact I must commend the MEND guys for totally boycotting our news media as they have been compromised.
