Maybe It Is About Who You Know Or Maybe Not…
If the Barbados Music Awards are to really mean something, the judging process has to have integrity.
Ian Bourne at the Bajan Reporter blog is asking some “difficult” questions about the Barbados Music Awards judging process. He also makes some connections between the venue, the contest organization and the Barbados Advocate newspaper.
Ian asked some of the same questions in 2006 when he had a column at the Barbados Advocate. You can read about it in Ian’s weekly column in the Barbados Advocate …. OH….. wait a minute…
Oh yes… I forgot that the Barbados Advocate fired Ian for asking those types of “difficult” questions.
“Difficult questions” on Barbados are defined as “anything that draws attention to the lack of integrity, transparency or accountability of any process. ”
