Letter From The President: Spies and journalists

Fri, 7 Oct 2005 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents, what is this I hear about journalists turning into spies? I have been closely following the debates on this matter and I am baffled by the sheer arrogance of the journalists who have turned themselves into secret agents ? using James Bond methods to eavesdrop on other people?s conversations.

I nearly puked when I heard what the deputy editor of the Vanguard newspaper had to say in defense of his forays into the world of secret agents. Remember it was the Vanguard newspaper which came out to clearly state that it had the capacity to bug (or tap) people?s phones and that they had used this method to uncover a plot by Jerry Boom to assassinate one of our former Attorney Generals, who happens to be the current chairman of the NDC.
