T&T journalists criticised

Added 19 May 2010

PORT OF SPAIN - UNITED National Congress (UNC) chairman Jack Warner has strongly criticised the three journalists who interviewed Prime Minister Patrick Manning on Sunday night, during a government information service programme titled Prime Minister Unplugged. Warner said the interview was the saddest day for journalism in the country.“I would have thought that the prime minister would have had some tough questions from some tough journalists,” Warner said.“I don’t want you to judge those journalists by the journalists we have in this country . . . this country has produced journalists like Patrick Chokolingo, George John and Owen Baptiste . . . who, if they had been there last night, Manning would not have escaped unscathed.”He urged the people to vote for UNC leader  Kamla Persad-Bissessar to bring about change  and betterment.
