  • bonnie!….they r just dwn-right nosey!….likes every-one-elses business, except their own!

  • I fail to understand why the hospital has to be in chaos. The article does not say. If all the persons had died at the scene, why would Bahamians “swamp” Accident and Emergency getting in the way of the medics? What did they expect to see or do? Bahamians really do some stupid things!

  • Guys, while I understand that you feel strongly about the state of the media, it is a bit inappropriate and insensitive to be jawing about that right now.
    Let’s focus on the victims and the grief of the families.
    My deepest sympathies to the families of all the victims of this tragedy, especially Nelson’s wife Coreen and their young son, Cornell.

  • BP thank you keeping up abreast, my family is in San Salvador, and about to do alot of travelling for Home Coming and all the other “news” organizations acting like nothing has happened, My God people have lost their lives and loved ones… and yet they want to call BP a “rumour mill”. Thank you BP.

  • RIP NATHANIEL WILLIAMS

  • I extend my deepest sympathies to the families who have lost loved ones in this tragedy, especially the family of the late Nelson Hanna.

    BP, continue to keep us informed. Well done.

    May their souls rest in peace.

    “BP can say one of the diseased is an employee of the Bahamas Electricity Corporation.”

    I think the word is DECEASED

  • Hello I am from the Turks and Caicos Islands and I just heard about the news. It is so sad. I heard a man who is from the Turks and Caicos that he had a son on board the flight,not sure if this is facts. May God be the family of the seven passengers and may they continue to trust in God. Only God knows.

  • I totally agree with Altec. The Bahamian Media is usually more concerned with being live on the scene at social events and have yet to invest in the equipment needed to be live on the scene of tragic occurrences such as this. It is the media’s responsibility to report the news…the correct news of course…and not the “half-truths” and “convenience” stories. If reporting is done correctly, perhaps there would be less/no lawsuits and/or smoke-outs. If this story is correct, disregarding the statement “one of the DISEASED is an employee of the Bahamas Electricity Corporation,” I am totally shocked!

    • Educated, ZNS, JCN and Cable 12 all have the equipment to go live, but they dont do it that often. They only go live at political conventions because they are getting PAID to do it and at the opening of parliament.

      The last time ZNS went live was with the election court case when Allison Gibson challenged the results. ZNS broke into regular programming and went live to Clint Watson who was at the court house.

      Its so sad the state of the media in this country. Whats even more sad is the fact that they think they are doing a good job!

  • For once, I must say you guys are on the ball…..AT LEAST I HOPE!

  • Indeed…in these sad times it’s good to know that the public can count on “up to the minute” reliable coverage.

    • media

      Lysale i have said it before and I will say it again. The only thing they can now do with BP is create SPIN and Deflection. I heard one of the media houses reported today how we are creating distress at Atlantis. Well, they need not question what we are reporting down there, they should go and ask the dismissed employees. THIS IS AMAZING isn’t it.

      I will tell you, the media in the Bahamas is owned by the same small group who can only find news when it benefits their group.

      WE ARE THE CHANGE!

      BP

  • BP, what a joke the Bahamas media is. Since this tragedy happen, JCN is playing songs, Cable 12 running some foolishness and ZNS is only giving live coverage on 104.5FM.

    What does it take for the news agencies to go live from the scene? Had this happen anywhere in the world, this would have been covered live by all media.

    ZNS, Cable 12 and JCN are total amateurs. This is freaking unbelievable.

    • media

      You know Altec this is the very reason why BP must make the investments in RADIO and TV equipment. But when they aren’t throwing on lawsuit at us they are trying to smoke us out. But as you you can see we are here on the scene UPDATING the public all over the world. 3 major media houses in the US already contacted BP, why? Because we on the ball.

      We COMING!

      BP

    • Altec….i could not have said it any better….our prayers are with the family during this time…
