on cited 11 times in South African University PhD Research on Ghana News 1
Your most authoritative news website has been cited numerous times in a Doctor of Philosophy thesis by a South African University undertaking a critical research about Ghana.

Launched in 2017, has become the go-to news website for newsreaders in Ghana and across the world, especially in the US, Netherlands, Germany, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia and Italy among others.

The PhD Research, titled “A Critical Study of Informal Fallacies in some socio-political discourse in Ghana” examined how Ghanaian newsmakers’ statements are geared towards influencing public opinion and how sometimes the content of their statements mislead the public.

The 290-page University of South Africa Research authored by Dr. Richard Ansah and sponsored by the University of Cape Coast (UCC) cited for example, a story published by on May 24, 2018 in which  Kwame A-Plus alleged that an appointee of President Akufo-Addo had allegedly splashed out Ghs100,000 (one hundred thousand Cedis) to pay for a single flight ticket. Kwame A Plus had said a lot is happening on the blind side of the President.

The Research among many others said A Plus used a fallacy and had no evidence for his claim. The Research justified why these allegations must be critically examined and interrogated by the public before being influenced by it as it lacks any evidence.
