Local media censorship
« on: October 05, 2012, 12:21:17 PM »
Reading the news on line yesterday I felt compelled to comment on a story.  O
n the JEP website re "forum tackles negative views". My comment simply stated that Mr. Bailhache should listen to the negative views expressed in the Island before worrying about views from abroad. The result? Refused to publish.
We certainly must not criticise the man must we!!!

Its a fair comment Jerseydaz.
Just goes to show how sick and pathetic the JEP is.

No matter who they are and what they are trying to hide or cover up:  King Canute comes to mind.  After all he was a Viking and may be a descendant ;).

King Canute was an honourable man.
He pulled the, "Turning the tide", stunt to show his people that he was not as powerful as they thought he was.

I had read that somewhere yes!   It probably was the wrong description to use :)
