|Chronicle apologises to all Guyanese for controversial Editorial|
|Saturday, 07 July 2012 22:05|
If any of our readers would have perused the article published on July 3, 2012 with the above caption, let me first apologize to you all for having been previewed to such a publication.
As Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Chronicle newspapers I sincerely regret this article ever being published and wish to apologize to all the persons both locally and overseas who may have been offended or affected.
Though I was not directly involved in the oversight of this publication nor was I aware of its contents, this article still should not have passed the Editor’s desk and eventually went to publication.
Having said this, I’d like to make it abundantly clear that the views expressed in the publication by no means is a representation of the majority shareholders, the board nor the management and staff of Chronicle.
I’d like to think that over the past few years we, as a media house, have been striving to make certain professional and impartial publications published in our daily prints. We have given our outmost to ensure that our publications over the years were geared towards promoting racial harmony amongst our citizenry. Chronicle has always tried to keep a high moral and professional code of ethics in providing factual and balanced reporting.
It should be noted that the action has and will be taken against those (the Editor –who was on duty - and writer of the article) who were responsible for this particular publication and if it is found that there were others who contributed to the article, the relevant disciplinary actions will be taken. At this time I’d like to take the opportunity to assure our readers and all Guyanese that additional steps have been taken to ensure that there isn’t a similar reoccurrence.
Once again, the Chronicle would like to apologize to all and sincerely hope that this apology is accepted. I believe that as a matter of principle that this event will more than likely result in some resignation at the board level.
