Newsfile today was disappointing. Samson is sinking the credibility of the show because of his love for and affiliation with Kweku Baako. Kweku Baako is presented to us as a neutral person yet on any issue concerning NDC vs NPP, this same Kweku Baako refers to the NDC as “our friends on the other side”... On which side is he? Isn't it what opponents say to each other?
Secondly, Samson watched Afenyo lie to us that JJ Rawlings retracted his call for his interdiction. JJ didn't retract. He Afenyo rather went to Rawlings to explain what exactly the case before Martin Amidu was. In the statement released by the office of JJ Rawlings, there's no where Rawlings retracted his interdiction call. All the credible news portals who reported this story put the word RETRACT in quotes. While Samson demands strict proof and sometimes tries to even cross examine Sammy Gyamfi, he sat there and watched Afenyo lie.
Thirdly, Afenyo suggesting that Rawlings said JM knows he'll lose 2020 and that he's putting himself up for 2024 is a big fat lie. The video is out there. Rawlings never mentioned anyone. If Samson was interested in the credibility of his show, he could have played that video or at least corrected Afenyo like he wanted desperately to expose Sammy Gyamfi which turned out to be an exercise in futility.
Again, Samson has hosted this show for far too long and by now he's expected to master the art of time management. It's completely unfair that Sammy Gyamfi didn't get the opportunity to have a say on the CST. This is because on the first two topics, Sammy Gyamfi was the one on the defensive. The issues of PDS and the training of NPP thugs were brought to the public by NDC. Sammy was there to show proof that we weren't telling lies. So Sammy was on the defensive. The CST was the only opportunity for Sammy Gyamfi to go on an onslaught against government and fairness demands that everyone get the chance to have a bite. In the past, the time has been extended at least for those watching on TV. Why wasn't it today? Was it because they've had enough of Sammy Gyamfi who has proven to be a brilliant chap whose communication skills are unmatched?
Newsfile viewers deserve better!!!
