In Ghana l think the best people to provide feedback about the effectiveness of the media are the politicians or political actors, service providers and the people themselves. When radio especially decides to focus on an issue, the scramble by decision makers, service providers to ensure that they have the "right answers" for the media shows its power. This is not to say that they do not err, they do and we have some who are paid to do the bidding of their paymasters. l would like to see a lot of follow-ups when they take up issues about lack of service delivery etc. They have demonstrated that the MEDIA serve as powerful tools for accountability purposes. Access to Information alone would not be enough. bout what Information We need to encourage bodies (thinktanks or clearing houses) which would package the information so the media can make a sense of what the issues are about. History has also shown that we need both private, state and public media to ensure quality service from providers.
