Dear ABC News…

Dear ABC News Team,

Thanks for your interest in Barbados Free Press, but unfortunately we are not in a position to be interviewed either on or off the air for your upcoming “Freedoms” segment on your Cuba and the Caribbean series.

Yes, you may use portions (or all) of our article Cuba After Castro – What Does It Mean For Barbados? and any other original work that you find on Barbados Free Press without charge so long as you credit “Barbados Free Press”.

As to the photo of former Prime Minister Owen Arthur and Fidel Castro with their arms around each other, we do not own the rights to that photo and cannot recall where we found it, so we cannot provide you with a higher-resolution copy or video of that event.

Once again, thanks for your interest in our blog.

Yours truly,

Barbados Free Press
Marcus, Shona, Robert, George, Cliverton, Auntie Moses

    I continue to be surprised at how small the world has become. ABC News writing to a blog when putting a story together. As I recall this is not the first time you mentioned this type of thing happening BFP. CNN and someone else before right?

    I know why they come to you because every time I look for something at Google BFP is on the page somewhere. Ten years ago this would not have happened.

    Maybe ABC News will feature the photo of the newly re-virginated Chief Justice Sir David Simmons? They bound to see it!


  3. Keep up the great work that you all are doing for real.

  4. I like it. Maybe this global exposure will shake the Barbados Government into transparency.
    BFP and BU…..keep it going

    interesting ! very interesting !
    i think the blogs are the revolution we needed for a long time

    i am a bit wary of this particular blog because i do not know how fair or how biased this blog could be

    the blog will force the transparency that we need in these former colonial countries

    We see the response, but why can’t we see the letter from ABC that prompted said response?


    BFP says,

    Because we don’t want a gazillion peoples tracking down the reporter who wrote to us.
