Title: Ethical dilemma revisited: PBO newspapers and the professional elbowroom of the Nigerian journalist
Authors: Ojebode, A.
Issue Date: 2013
Publisher: Intellect Limited
Abstract: "Focusing on politician-businessperson-owned (PBO) newspapers, the study examined how loyalty to the owners’ multiple interests has reduced the professional elbowroom of the Nigerian journalist. Through in-depth interviews and textual analysis, the study found that journalists in PBO newspapers are extremely constrained on the kind of stories they write and how. Caught in the conflict between professionalism and pandering to the owners’ layers of political and economic interests, many journalists submit, while some rebel. The narrowed elbowroom is a reason for many of the ethical violations among Nigerian journalists. "
