Director of Communications for the People’s National Convention (PNC), Emmanuel Wilson, is of the opinion that the contents of the leaked tape that captures the voice of NDC’s National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, were twisted and given wrong interpretation by the pro-government radio station which first aired it.

Stopping short of naming the government bias radio stations which first broadcast the contents of the leaked tape, Mr. Wilson pointed out that certain individuals working for these media houses, decided to put a spin on it, thus setting the agenda for their listeners to interpret it the way they wanted them to.

Contributing to a panel discussion on Alhaji and Alhaji political talk show on Radio Gold, the PNC Director of Communications said it "didn’t come to him as a surprise" when the following day, almost all media houses got hoodwinked.

Before the tape became popular on Wednesday, it has already been played on a Tuesday evening program on a radio station. When the tape was played, these individuals decided to put a meaning to the tape; they decided to set agenda. They decided on how listeners should interpret the tape and the contents so I wasn’t surprised when just the following day being Wednesday, almost all media houses that carried that story decided to go the road that was paved by the radio station that played it for the first time”, he asserted.

The PNC activist further stated that he was completely taken aback after listening to the contents of the leaked tape as his (Wilson's) understanding, was different from the interpretations that were given to it by the media.

“...again I was not so surprised because as I said, the first time I heard it played was on a radio station which is clearly a pro-NPP radio station and so you should expect the twist and the interpretations they gave to it”, he insisted.

To him, it was unfortunate that "about 70 percent of other media houses in the country, including the print media", towed the agenda first set by that pro-NPP radio station.
