Former lawyer/chief counsel turned full-time journalist & editor Karen Walrond says of the establishment of the Barbados Labour Party Blog…
"In my opinion, this is huge."
Referring to an earlier article by writer Titilayo, Walrond goes on to say…
Interestingly, Titilayo muses that the move by the BLP to start their own blog might have been motivated by the presence of another blog, the Barbardos Free Press, an alternative, controversial, high-profile blog written by three individuals who aren't afraid to tell it like it is.
If Titilayo is correct, and the BLP started their weblog in response to the Barbado Free Press? Then I say that this is a great day for citizen journalism — for anything that forces any political party to listen to the people (or at least make motions to do so) is a good thing.
