When our Pacific media are told by management that they can’t ask the hard questions about issues affecting their community – then something is seriously wrong. Efeso Collins has been taken off the 531 PI Saturday morning breakfast show for refusing to toe the line. He has continued to challenge the $4.8 million that was allocated to the Pacific Economic Development Agency and now has been taken off air without any explanation provided.
Only about 6 weeks ago the world celebrated the World Press Freedom day – who would have thought that here in our own little developed country – Freedom of the press could be breached in this way.
I’ve attached links to the Pacific Eyewitness website that provides some information on what has been unfolding with regards to the silencing of our Pacific media.
