I agree with DM.
These are serious charges by Mr. Harris to the best choice which both Astona Browne and Police Commissioner Walwyn should be given opportunity, in fairness, to respond!

Journalism 101.

I hope you are not trying to tell me to be "hushed" because that type of attitude is not fit in a democracy.

The point here is that WINN FM should not be caught parrotting thin stories that have no basis in reality but a simply a political hit job from the political platform.

If Timothy had FACTS he would not ask, he would state. those are not standards that I made up, they are tried and tested in any fair media coverage.

I like WINN FM, it's where i get my news, but fairness in journalism must always prevail.

Quoting DM:
Winn FM has to be careful it isn't being caught running purely political stories for the benefit of the opposition. What is disappointing withthis type of hournalism is that you run the story with no mention of statement from the Commissioner of anancymag.com Police.

Wnn FM should know that not everything on a Facebook page turns out to be true. True journalist should know that whenever a politicial asks a provocative question on the political platform, the way Timothy did in this case, it is a clear indication that he does not have any facts to support a statement on the same matter.

Hopefully WINN FM can maintain a higher level of journalistic intergrity and not subject its international audience to the very low bar set with this article.

Douglas said he over threw a sitting government,he boasted he can incite again,he threatened citizens if they voted for Hamilton..what say you on this?
