Some fair criticism, the survey does not state the clear methods of evaluation and even a standard gauge, raising questions on how they arrived on the final values.

Another line of failure, is the research obsession with TV journalists who are the largest chunk in the top 100 list, which saw big names in the Radio such as Jalango and Maina Kageni miss out.

The research has however done good in listing some of the most influential personalities in the media industry
