Media Accountability Systems and Journalism Practice in Nigeria



The paper appraises the existing media accountability structures in Nigeria and their appositeness on the ethical expectations from journalists by the society. The paper employs social responsibility theory to linchpin the thesis of the paper. The paper submits that the existing structures may not be able to support the fragile nature of our fledgling democracy. It therefore recommends the strengthening of the existing structures through self regulation, minimal government interference with more roles for the civil societies.
