CNN Links To Keltruth Blog For The Fourth Time!
Every day millions of blogs all over the world link to major news sites like BBC, Fox, CNN, NY Times, Sky and others as the bloggers write their own takes on the day’s happenings. Huge news organisations like CNN sometimes have hundreds or even thousands of blogs linking to a major story – so it is a big deal when CNN links back and features two or three quality blogs that are discussing the same topic.
Although CNN contacted us last August for an interview about the hurricane, I can’t recall them ever linking back to one of our BFP stories…
Corrupt VECO Corporation Bribed Politicians As Standard Operational Policy
Keltruth’s story What is Organized Crime Costing You? talks about the cost of the new Barbados Prison built by the corrupt VECO Corporation and how taxes are impacted by the outrageous cost overruns that are so typical in Barbados government projects. Also typical is the the reluctance of both the new DLP and old BLP governments to make any inquiries concerning the stink of corruption that surrounds the VECO new jail project.
The Keltruth article also talks about how the Government of Barbados in 2002 formally classified fraud as “a victimless crime” !!!!
Obviously, CNN finds that little tidbit of Barbados Government policy to be as fascinating as we do.
