A Corrupt Government
Would Fear one investigative journalist
More than one million people at the ballot box

My first day in journalism school twenty-four years ago is a day I wouldnever forget. My lecturer who was ex British SAS said this
: Quote “aninvestigative journalist would among other things bring contentquality to the table but most of all, he investigates what isdeliberately hidden, like corruption” End of quote.
I say without hesitation that investigativejournalism in Guyana
No activejournalist knows the first thing aboutinvestigation. In fact, I would say they arescared to ask questions of people who they thinkare hiding the truth, they fear for their jobs.I remember when stabroeknews was the papers toread. They told it like it was back in the day.Today, the stabroeknews live under a cloud offear instilled in them by the PPP regime. Theyfear that they may lose an ad or two from theGovernment.This fear allows the PPP crooks in office to getaway with defrauding the public committingracist and discriminatory actions against alarge cross section of the Guyanese public.
