Ongoing protests, “dechoukaj” and a cholera outbreak grip Haiti
I am so confused. While the Haitian Times is publishing articles that falls in line with saying that the cause of the Haitian Crisis is the result of gangs; the alleged “perpetrators/ gang members” have quite a different message that says that they’re only fighting to eliminate the corruption that’s plaguing the country. Which narrative is true? https://youtu.be/FEad7f2CMOQ
And in the face of unbiased reporting, why isn’t any of the narratives from the actual perpetrators being published? Isn’t that what true journalism is about?
After not seeing any articles from the other side being posted, I am forced to think that there’s some type of one-sided agenda going on. And just to be clear, I’m not saying that what Barbecue is averring is true. I’m not for him or against him, but what I am saying is that if his message is not true, should we not publish it, then engage in a fact-checking mission to show the readers it’s faults, in order to dissuade the masses from being sympathetic to his cause??? Or if his message is true, should we not put it out there so legitimate reform can be made???
Thanks for your comment. Here are a few Haitian Times articles where “the other side” spoke with us, including Cherizier’s transition plan for governing Haiti. Keep in mind too that they don’t always want to be interviewed.
