Who Should Be Blamed For The Sanction Of Channels TV By President Buhari Government?

Recently Channels Television televised the interview of Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State and Commodore Kunle Olawunmi (retd.) on their station. They were interviewed by some journalists. In the interview Governor Samuel Ortom made an allegation of a fulanization agenda and Olawunmi alleged that there are people who are in top positions in Buhari Government that are sponsors of Boko Haram.

The allegations made by Governor Samuel Ortom and Kunle Olawunmi, a former Naval chief have resulted to an intended ban of Channels TV by President Muhammadu Buhari Government. The Government of President Muhammadu Buhari has issued a directive to the National Broadcasting Commission to sanction the TV station.

A critical question to ask is who is to be blamed for the purposed ban by President Buhari Government on Channels TV? Is it the interviewers(Channels TV Journalists) or the interviewees(Governor Samuel Ortom and Olawunmi)?

Was there anyway the Journalists who interviewed them and asked the questions, could have totally isolated themselves and the Television station from the allegations made by Governor Samuel Ortom and Commodore Kunle Olawunmi (retd.)? Would this have prevented the ban on the TV station.

The above picture is an example of a disclaimer remark.

In recent times, we have seen some broadcasting stations put a disclaimer remark when a guest is stating an opinion that is not totally approved by them. If Channels TV had put this disclaimer remark on the statements made by Gov Ortom and Olawunmi, would there have been a different outcome?
