The Media Blog: Everything about this Newsroom.ng headline on Banky W is terrible, terrible, terrible

Look, we are sympathetic. Everyone is in the traffic race, of some sort, even those who pretend not to be. What’s the point of journalism if enough people are not reading?

But this one takes the cake. The Banky W/Adesua Etomi news was everywhere yesterday, and it was a boon for website traffic. Everyone got in on that magic. And it’s reasonable that people want to extend this.

This post by Newsroom.ng however? Inexcusable. To put words in Adeboye’s mouth that he didn’t say, to claim he pointedly predicted the death of their oncoming marriage? And to brazenly put this false statement in quotes? Man. Where was the editor?

 

This is, of course, apart from the basic common sense fact that Olubankole didn’t meet Adesua on social media. A little reading by the reporter would show that he met her at a 2015 event.

Isn’t this the same side that had the headline a few days ago ‘Buhari to undergo penis operation‘ and it turned out to be a sick baby called Buhari?

Get a grip, guys.
