Was CNN’s Isha Sesay Out of Line With her Reporting on the Kidnapped Nigerian Girls? #Bringbackourgirls @ishasesayCNN

I can’t believe the onslaught of attacks on CNN’s Isha Sesay from many Nigerians regarding her coverage of the #Bringbackourgirls campaign. Many believe she was out of line in a recent coverage, the clip of which I shared with you all a few days ago. Do you agree?

  1. She was practically trying to Bully him, i don’t think she can try this government officials in Syria, or Russia. Plus it seemed she had an already preconceived notion about the whole issue. Not professional enough. Clearly taking sides.

    If i were to be this Minister, i would have put her in line. Like asked her who sent her, and why she sounds like she is taking sides, that i can’t speak with her cos she sounds like she is on a mission. and would have offered to give her audience next time she makes up her mind to be non partisan.

    Anyways, it’s Naija, and the government brought what they are seeing on themselves.

  2. Whereas the situation in the country and the reaction of our leaders is unfortunate, the truth is that her interview was unprofessional on every level imaginable from the bias which she made absolutely no effort to conceal, to her more than frequent discourteous interruptions of a guest on TV. The very tenets of journalism were flouted in that interview by the blatant lack of objectivity or neutrality.

    I think it is really sad how much our government has exposed our to ridicule.

  3. I think it also unfortunate how our leaders who are supposed to be representatives and spokesmen of our nation lack polishing in speech and decorum.

    she was indeed out of line, I noticed that she is more aggressive and critical with africans she interviews than with europeans / americans. She is clearly grandstanding to make sure she keeps her job!
