Abeiku Santana said a website is not credible because it published  fake news about Lil Win knocking someone with his car. As a journalist, he’s expected to know the procedures involved in handling defamation and it has nothing to do with the Police.

If a single fake news makes a wesbsite loses its credibility, then Abeiku Santana, why is Peacefmonline credible? You may have to explain if we have different types of fake news.

Peace FM once reported that Usain Bolt gave all his Olympics earnings to his former school. Is this real news? What works of journalism went into this report?

The media is filled with lot of fake news and people who hate fake news would have to sign out from the internet and rely on the print media where fake news isn’t much.

Our own GTV  announced the ‘death’ of South Africa ex-president Thabo Mbeki after a fake website published it.

GhanaWeb reported that a whole plane carrying Ghanaians to South Africa was deported. 

GhanaWeb once again joined The Chronicles to lie to Ghanaians that Akufo Addo unfollowed Shatta Wale on Twitter.

NewsGhana.com.gh said NDC and Sarkodie entered into a GHS 7 million deal.

MyNewsGh.com, one of the top 10 entertainment websites in Ghana has ran several fake stories including Chinese – BECE Marking and Akufo Addo unfollowing Shatta Wale on Twitter.

Is Lil Win really a celeb? If just knocking someone with your car which is considered as an accident calls for the police, then what would you do to a death hoax? What would you do to defamation? There should be an institution in Ghana to groom celebs on how to deal with some of these issues.
