In response to a post by university professor turned political analyst, Prof Waswa Kisiang'ani, who had called out Citizen TV for not perfectly airing content from Deputy President William Ruto's rally in Nyeri, Hussein has urged his former Citizen colleagues to stop deviating from the foundations on which journalism was built.
Hussein agreed with Prof Kisiang'ani's views and asked Citizen TV to be true to journalism's heritage.
"Political reporting is becoming increasingly political. Our colleagues must adhere to the principles upon which journalism was formed "He stated.
Prof Kisiang'ani argues that Citizen has been presenting a lot of Raila Odinga's Azimio content and very little from Kenya Kwanza.
"Citizen TV has perfected its anti-Ruto and anti-Kenya Kwanza reporting. Although the KK and Azimio rallies are referenced, only Azimio photographs are provided. @HusseinMohamedg It covers Karua in Kiambu and RAO in Narok, but not much about the KK economic conference in Murang'a "explained a Kenya University lecturer
This writer has not independently verified the professor's and Hussein's comments, who currently works for Deputy President William Ruto.
