Press Club President responds to PM's remarks about media
NASSAU, The Bahamas – President of The Bahamas Press Club 2014, Anthony Capron has responded to remarks made by Dr the Hon Hubert A Minnis, Prime Minister, during his Keynote address at The Bahamas Press Club Awards on Saturday, November 18, 2017.
The Prime Minister seemingly bashed the media and suggested what they should be reporting on, instead of critcizing him and his Government.
“I would say that the Prime Minister was perhaps misguided in the opinions he expressed about the media and the hard-working professional men and women who daily gather the news from every corner of this archipelago,” Mr. Capron said.
But that is exactly why The Bahamas Press Club has instituted the annual media awards, he noted.
“Because you always hear the press being bashed for what it is not doing. The good goes unspoken, unrecognized and unappreciated by the critics.
“And so, we cannot and will not be put off by the bad mouthing that will come our way. We have a job to do and we will do our job.”
