We have explained on previous occasions that we are dependent on sources to supply information to ensure that Barbadians are kept informed about matters which others might prefer to remain behind the secret curtain. Sometimes we are able to cross-check and publish, and other times we have to sit on information for special reasons. So far we think BU and BFP have been able to do a reasonable job by exercising the good judgment and editorial control.
Here are two examples of what we mean:
Guess which big politician just paid out $35,000 to his former secretary after she threatened to go to court over sexual harassment?
Now, we are not asking our BU family to speculate. We are only giving you an example of why we want our sources to send us some more information. If we knew who the politician is, we might be able to table a case for that person to resign.
Don’t ask my name because I can’t tell you. Two top Dems have decided to resign and join the Bees. One is a man and one is a woman. They are close friends from constituencies in St. Michael and Christ Church. The man had planned to leave at the start of this year, but he held on trying to get the woman to join him. She had been unhappy about something in the D camp for a long time, but because of an old family connection with the party going back to Barrow days she was undecided about it. Well, she has seen the polls and it looks like she finally decided which way the wind is blowing, so she is gone buzzing with the honey bees.
What about this other bit of information? How the hell do we confirm this information?
The job of a blogger can be very frustrating at times.
