(ZIZ News) â€” When Grenadaâ€™s Prime Minister, Rt. Hon. Dr. Keith Mitchell spoke at Mondayâ€™s opening ceremony of the Caribbean Broadcasting Unionâ€™s Annual General Assembly, he encouraged media companies to be thorough in their work and not allow themselves to be influenced by persons deemed to be the elite in society.
While sharing his thoughts on Dr. Mitchellâ€™s address, General Manager of ZIZ Broadcasting Corporation, Clement Oâ€™garro said his company was in line with the recommendations.
â€œThough we are a government institution, it does not necessarily mean that weâ€™re not in the broadcast journalism business. We are. And one of the things he wanted to make sure that the journalist are doing is fact-check your work. We wanna make sure that everything weâ€™re doing is factual,â€ he said.
â€œYes there are people who are not gonna like some of the stories that we do because theyâ€™re intimately involved. But if the facts are right, if weâ€™ve got the details thatâ€™s more important than how the other person is gonna feel,â€ he said.
Meantime, Rose Willock OBE of ZJB Montserrat and the late Terrence Holder have been inducted into the CBUâ€™s Hall of Fame.
