Jan 21, 2015 – Stop The Attacks!!! I’m A Blogger Not A Paid Nigerian Journalist
The reality is not so black and white. Bloggers have diligently investigated and reported news stories that had been ignored and eventually made it to mainstream news outlets, and professional journalists have reported unverified, unreliable and ultimately false stories as fact.
Bloggers may be subject-area experts with deep professional training, experience and knowledge of a topic that is often greater than a journalist but they are often reliable with information.
In Nigeria most journalists and media outlets are paid to write make-believe story while MOST bloggers are usually people who write their opinion on subject matters.
Most Bloggers are unique in that they write their view point on a subject matter after sharing a news story.
Those of you attacking NaijaGists.com for being paid by political parties, get a life.
God is my witness, I’m never paid by any political parties, I have turned down several political ads to avoid this kind yeye accusation.
So next time you come across a story here you don’t agree with, no biggie, say your own view point and let it rest.
For my loyal fans, that has been with me since the last 8 years, you all know that I investigate stories very well. Yes I don’t carry gabbage news and I will never do.
I do get regular invitations to press conferences but I don’t attend all of them especially when it involves politicians.
NaijaGists.com is known for carrying authentic stories and breaking news. I better my colleagues in that I go further to investigate stories by contacting the parties involved for confirmation and photo evidence.
I TAKE PRIDE IN MY JOB AND I DO IT VERY WELL. I’M NOT PERFECT PLEASE DON’T GET ME WRONG.
My modes of operation is unique and different from all other bloggers out there, I investigate stories and yes I gossip and love to give the latest gist in town… that is what stands me out.
Fans I appreciate you, attackers, keep it coming… I believe most of my attackers are paid to throw the punch but it is alright…
It is a free world isn’t it? But don’t take your freedom for granted. One love!
