LETTER: Give ABLP another term in office and they will muzzle ALL news media

25

Dear Editor,

You must understand that, according to the ABLP, news is only important if it paints a positive view of their administration.

News like the debacle at Clareview is not considered worthy of reporting because it exposes the incompetence of the ABLP administration.

Give them another term in office, and they will muzzle ALL news media that does not heap praise on Gaston and his minions.

To be forewarned is to be forearmed. Beware of despots!

  1. This is clearly just a scare tactic. If they were going to muzzle all media, surely they would have done it already? You do your own case no help by wild accusations.

    • @ Arnold

      They tried, but failed to silence OBSERVER – REMEMBER MELFORD’S PROMISE, TO SILENCE THEM?
      BUT TYRANNY CANNOT STOP PEOPLE POWER.

  2. Serpent not in office and he already MUZZLING others who dont pimp his political views.

    MICKEL BRANN: Serpent Must Separate Himself From Editorial Decisions

    She recommends that Observer Media should do exactly what it did in 2004, when one of its founders stated that his objective was to remove the then administration from office.

    “The Board of Observer needs to sit and think about the direction going forward. What happens during the campaign? What happens after the campaign if there is a winning candidate who is part of a winning party? Or what happens if you have a winning candidate who is part of a losing party, or losing candidate and losing party? All of those will have implications for the company,” Brann said.

    “Immediately, a clear and concise statement from Serpent indicating he is an owner and programme host, but HE WILL BE REMOVED FROM PROGRAMMING AND NEWSROOM DECISIONS, and BE SEEN TO BE REMOVED from these programming decisions, should happen. And then he should let his word be his bond.

    “The Daily Observer itself needs an EDITORIAL STATEMENT and they need to RECOMMIT TO FAIR AND BALANCED NEWS PROCESS and they need to BE SEEN TO BE DOING THAT regardless of where the owner sits and what their editorial i.e. their opinion is,” Brann added.

  3. Well UPP is well known to muzzle the media. Look at how they did ZDK!!! Vere Bird III said they tried to force unto the property without a warrant.

    Well sah. Look how the PERPETRATORS pretending to be VICTIMS!

    Sean Bird 🐦 will learn the hard way. UPP called it NIGHT SOIL RADIO and will backstab him.

    • @ SHERFIELD

      ABS IS TOTALLY OPENED TO THE OPPOSITION UPP.

      THAT IS THE TRUTH. CAN YOU DEFEND THAT SARCASM?

    • @Sherfield… Hey IDIOT, can you move to the year 2022? Y’all keep going back to the UPP of 2014 and ignoring the ABLP of today.

  4. THEY NEED TO MUZZLE PROGRESSIVE RADIO, OH MY .. SUCH FOWL LANGUAGE.. SUCH VULGARITY .. NEVER HAVE I HEARD SUCH CONDUCT ON ANY RADIO STATION IN ANTIGUA BARBUDA, ESPECIALLY THE TUESDAY MORNING PROGRAM THUNDER AND LIGHTNING! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS STATION IS ALIGNED TO A POLITICAL PARTY WHO WANTS TO TAKE OVER GOVERNANCE OF OUR FAIR LAND.

    • @ Starrie

      I TOTALLY AGREE 😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒

      I THINK YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD YOUR DIAL TUNED TO RUM SHOP RADIO, POINTE FM

  5. If any citizen of Antigua & Barbuda agree with this move by the desperate ABLP to try and curtail freedom of speech from the media, then PLEASE give up your Antiguan Nationality and apply for a North Korean or similar country citizenship where your freedom of speech is diminished. Ouch!

    Gaston “I’m in danger of losing” Browne is sounding more and more desperate or crazy … I’m not sure which one!

  6. DNA Responds To Observer Radio’s Decision To STIFLE FREE SPEECH

    “…having failed in their ongoing public bullying, intimidation and threats, OBSERVER RADIO has decided to TRAMPLE ON FREE SPEECH and FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION…the HYPOCRISY is glaring and blinding!” Massiah continued, “it can now be officially confirmed that the Faithful Nationals, the Movement and Observer/NewsCo exist for one sole reason – to pursue their ill-fated mission to attempt to resuscitate a near comatose UPP”

    Joanne Massiah know them. Take heed to her warning Antigua people.

  7. CONT’D…..tell dem Joanne

    “…in one fell swoop, the media outlet which touts itself as “the only independent media house in Antigua and Barbuda” has demonstrated that it is FAR WORSE than its rivals which its condemns, criticizes and chastises day in, night in and day out, night out regarding their disregard for democratic principles and constitutional guarantees! Evidently, the Observer/NewsCo management and board members have shamelessly abandoned its stated motto, “Let there be Light”.

  8. I agree with the writer but I’ll put the headline another way. “Give ABLP another term in office and Gaston will muzzle ALL news media” just like how he muzzle his cabinet members.

  9. Why do ABLP Candidates and supporters resort to personal attacks when confronted with the truth? Please wake up and realize that you too and eventually Gaston, will be sold to the highest bidder!! Another term of ABLP will not only muzzle news media, it will muzzle personal rights and they (mainly Gaston and my cousin Chet) will sell off or prostitute what’s left of our Island Nation!! Just like Scar in the Lion King movie, all will be given away and Pride Rock (Antigua and Barbuda) will have nothing left to offer!! Wake up people!!!

  10. Observer Rule talk radio in Antigua and Barbuda.

    So with that said find sudden else to write about.
    Hmmmmm!! Usefull Idiot.

    Hmmmm. Please beg a drop to Rat Island and spent some time there .

    You will find yourself very comfortable with all the rats, little rats , big rats, big belly rats, and a bunch biting insects.
    I bet you
    Hmmmmm!! you will not find time to write all that rubbish, scratch ya scratch dey day and night
    Yes Hmmmmmm.

    Observer Rule!! Serpent In De Dance. He no fraid are You.

  11. Another term with ABLP and the citizens of Antigua back in slavery. One of the biggest mistake ever made to give them another term .

  12. The picture that captions the article displays a horrible OPTIC. They look like they are in China or Cuba in that uniform. HORRIBLE just HORRIBLE!!

  13. Seems our memories are short-lived. Not too long ago a bill was being considered to not only deprive Antiguans and Barbudans of their freedom of speech, but the right to shut down at will any media opposition they deem “threatening. “Just observe how personal these people get when darkness comes to light. For now, it seems to have gone away, but beware. Lest we forget: a peaceful protest was greeted with tear gas and rubber bullets; we were deprived of a job, students were denied the right to an education, we could not go to places without a jab that is now being called the largest genocide in human history, as millions fall dead. Take time to think,someone said, it’s a source of power.
