Ghana News Agency reported Nov. 3. that the government “urged” the media “to project a positive image of the country by showing more responsibility in the performance of their duties.”

The request came in a press release from the ruling National Democratic Congress’s Ashanti Regional Branch and as a result of a much reported alleged robbery and mass rape.

Police declared the alleged crimes a hoax and the government criticized the media for having “no regard for professional ethics” in reporting the story so extensively.  The government also criticized the media for being openly biased in reporting.
