Barbados Equestrian Association, dead tree news media, strangely silent on Natya Soodeen suspension
The popular Bajan Reporter online news outlet today published a new major article on the Natya Soodeen suspension. Someone supplied journalist Ian Bourne with copies of various emails exchanged in the controversial action by the Barbados Equestrian Association (BEA) and, true to Mr. Bourne’s earlier promise at BFP, Bajan Reporter published everything on a stated deadline after the BEA refused to discuss the story with journalists.
Apparently, the Barbados Equestrian Association stuck its head in the sand hoping everything will go away.
Barbadians have a vital interest in the controversy because, as Bajan Reporter points out, if the situation is allowed to fester much more it will harm our country’s international reputation as a proper equestrian sports venue.
Gallop over to Bajan Reporter and then ask yourself why the dead-tree media is boycotting the Natya Soodeen controversy when thousands of Barbadians are showing intense interest in the story on the blogs, FaceBook and chat forums.
