BU was heartened today to hear David Ellis of STARCOM Network speak-out against the recent attack on the Press which occurred at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. As Barbados leading journalist he has had to suffer a battering in recent times; especially at the hands of the Barbados Labour Party politicians with a general on the horizon. Much of what he said suggested to us that he reads the Blogs-that being the case he needs to go that step closer and mention that we too are playing a part to protect freedom of expression in Barbados.
So Mr. Ellis we congratulate you on the bold decision to speak-out on a matter which we recognize is before the court. Regrettably it appears that you maybe alone and you should therefore prepare yourself for the onslaught which is sure to come.
Listen to DAVID ELLIS as he defended the Press on the popular VOB 92.9 call-in program, Down to Brasstacks.
