Dart of Week Winner — Robert Persaud

Robert Persaud, Guyana Minister of Agriculture, speaking at a workshop for journalists, urged them to focus reporting on local community issues and stay out of politics. He accused them of being too interested in “sensational stories” rather than concerning themselves with local issues. You know, local issues like which politicians wife wore the prettiest dress or about a bake sale. But, stay away from reporting corruption and incompetence in government, those topics are for corrupters to report, not reporters.
