The proof of the pudding is in the eating and a trial shall surely convince you.
The unarguable submission all over the world when it comes to disseminating messages have been the call for concerted efforts for effective communication. Effective in the sense that the three vital functions of the media must be available in the medium of communication. They are to be (1) informative, (2) educative and (3) entertaining. Most major news blogs in Nigeria today either pay attention to either two of the above with or no attention to the entertaining function of the media.
