Radio Network Caves Under Government Pressure To Censor Well Known Tourism Advocate
Barbados Minister of Tourism, Noel Lynch, has finally agreed to appear on the 25th March edition of Down to Brass Tacks Sunday. This apparently took some doing by radio call-in show host David Ellis, who has been trying for months to have Minister Lynch speak to citizens on the call-in show.
However, the Minister has refused to allow popular hotelier Adrian Loveridge to appear live on the programme as part of a panel to question the Minister regarding a number of concerning issues in the tourism sector.
This is most embarassing for the StarCom Network as an invitation to Mr. Loveridge had already been extended and accepted. Mr. Loveridge has now been cancelled from the panel lineup.
What is the Minister worried about, that he may be asked an awkward question or two?
Hopefully BFP readers will call in to question the Minister this Sunday March 25th or email their questions and comments to:
BFP readers may remember that Minister Lynch also had Adrian Loveridge fired from his job as a columnist at the Barbados Advocate Newspaper – for daring to ask awkward questions. (BFP article link here)
Like all elitist politicians who are past their “best by” date, Minister Lynch has a tremendous sense of entitlement. Freedom of the press means nothing to a cowardly bully like Noel Lynch.
