(elbcradio.com/Feb. 15, 2016) - The Liberian Media has been cautioned to refrain from political patronage in the country.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alex Tyler, said political patronage is harmful to the Journalism Profession.
Speaker Tyler described the Media as partner of government in the transformation of Liberia.

He said:  “As partner of government, the Media must sustain peace and foster reconciliation if Liberians must peacefully co-exist.”
“The Media is capable of driving the Liberian society to transparency, accountability and justice,” Speaker Tyler noted.

He made the assertion Saturday, February 13, 2016 at the First Graduation of the Peter Quaqua School of Journalism in Monrovia.

The Speaker also called on the media to uphold ethical standards and ensure the portrayal of responsible performance.

The Peter Quaqua School of Journalism is being operated by a local media group, Media Aid Foundation.

Over 20 students were awarded diplomas after completing nine-month training in Journalism.
