Which of these journalists do you think is speaking ‘in defence of press freedom”? The first voices are those of journalist Kenton X. Chance and Minister of Agriculture Saboto Caesar, and later journalist Junior Jarvis and Caesar.
A controversy erupted in the aftermath of comments Jarvis made about “someone who operate a blog” (Chance) being invited to a press conference intended for print media. (Chance operates the website I-Witness News – www.iwnsvg.com and is also a correspondent for regional news agency the Caribbean Media Corporation, which provides news articles to websites and newspapers.
Jarvis later said he spoke on behalf of the non-print media, in defence of press freedom.
Some persons have interpreted Jarvis’ comments to be an objection to Chance being at the press conference. What do you think?
