Letter: Widespread vote-buying in Antigua-Barbuda
Published on June 2, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

In regards to the article “Widespread vote-buying alleged ahead of Antigua-Barbuda elections,” Caribbean News Now should be ashamed to have published this extremely biased and one sided article. What degree of fact checking has been done? And how can only simply take the hearsay of others and report it as news?

The article is filled with unchecked statements and complete speculation and you are allowing your once credible news portal to be used as a political machine.

I am very disappointed.

Sedale Perry

Editor’s note:

Readers should note that the article in question made no assertions of fact in this respect except to state the truth of the matter, namely, that such allegations are currently widely circulating in Antigua and Barbuda.

In fact our article specifically qualified the reports in this regard: “Whatever may be the truth to these claims...”

However, this would not be the first time that our reports of the obvious have been challenged by the government of Antigua and Barbuda – to its later embarrassment:
