The Gleaner attended last week’s screening of “Songs of Redemption”. They sent a photographer and “social” reporter, who took plenty of photographs and interviewed me for background. The coverage appears today on the Gleaner’s web site, and perhaps the paper, but I haven’t seen that.
It is a solid story and includes one picture of me and Justice Minister Mark Golding, who is apparently “listening keenly” to me. We were talking about a new investigative report I am working on for 18 Degrees North. Check out the story here.
As I’ve discussed before, the media is very different here. I suggested to the reporter that I could arrange interviews with all the relevant parties, but she declined, opting instead to get quotes from people emailed to her this week. The Gleaner (and Observer I think) will also accept stories submitted to them by people (usually public relations people) and run them as their copy. In any case, we are happy for the coverage.
