MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Press Union of Liberia (PUL) said monitoring of   media content in Liberia for the past six months has been challenging.

PUL President, Charles Coffey, blamed the situation on the absence of monitoring mechanism.

Mr. Coffey, presenting two quarterly reports authored by the Union’s Media Alert Office   in Monrovia, Monday, November 27, 2017 named the evolution of the social media as another contributing factor.

He said: “Some journalists are posting articles on Facebook without taking into consideration the explosive nature, especially during the electoral process in Liberia”.

The PUL Boss also spoke on the use of profanity in the social media, including comments that could put Liberians against each other. Meanwhile PUL is commending USAID for funding the Media Alert Office.
