Gleaner rolling wicket for PNP
THE EDITOR, Sir:
You know, it's funny how The Gleaner can see the faults of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) with such precision. The Gleaner's editorial writers, as evidenced by the column 'JLP in baggy trousers and lipstick' (Gleaner, August 13, 2015), have prostituted themselves out to the People's National Party (PNP).
The Gleaner editorial writers are clearly doing election work for the PNP. People are not fools. Nothing the PNP has done has been put in the editorial. If you look back: the Anthony Hylton and Paulwell fiascos ... nothing.
The PNP has strategically placed their operatives in the media, especially at The Gleaner. Holness can do no right in their view. Portia can do no wrong. Portia has been the most remote and ineffective prime minister of all time, and The Gleaner's editorial writers have not even commented on that. The dollar has been sliding almost to 120:1 with the greenback, yet The Gleaner's editorial writers have said nothing.
I suspect, that as the election draws closer, The Gleaner's editorials will become even more intense in bad-talking the JLP and ignoring the failures of the PNP and the Government.
