The FNM Government has ordered the former Cable and Wireless’ manager and the now Chief Executive Officer of Urca, Husman Saadat, to ban Hardy Copy host, Steve McKinney, from hosting any show within the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

DR. ELWOOD DONALDSON

We can confirm the move to censure the “People’s Show” after the exposure of the incestuous relationship between Cable and Wireless and URCA. Saadat, who is an enemy of The Bahamas, continues to interfere in Bahamian politics.

According to an FNM source, “Steve McKinney and Dr. Elwood Donaldson will now know who runs this country. We told Ingraham in 1992, that he was doing foolishness when he liberalized radios in The Bahamas.” Continued the source,

” Prime Minister Hubert A. Ingraham, now understand why the late PLP leader, the late Sir. Lynden O. Pindling never allowed private radio.” Finally, the FNM source says that Ingraham will get Steve McKinney off the air or URCA will close down every radio station or fine them if Steve McKinney’s voice is heard on radio.

PAPA HAS GONE MAD… AND THE FNMS WILD!

More breaking news coming up this morning.

  1. @Fish Mouth Dummy Yes, Lets also sell the government to them so we can get better education, better economy and cool T-shirts fill with MONEY! Yea!

  2. I can’t wait until this sale is completed and we get a better pricing and service break for the average Bahamian. This is well overdue. Common Mr. Ingraham, we’re counting on you!

    • if you support the sale for “better pricing” you are looking at the small picture, in time you will see how us Bahamians will suffer because of this deal.

  3. @bahamianrealist

    I know how to “flush” you’ll out, here goes:

    (1) Do you ABSOLUTELY AGREE that victimization is ALWAYS WRONG, even when it is done as retribution against someone who is perceived to be AN ENEMY of the FNM?

    (2) Are you a Bahamian who has a particular political preference, or are you a particular political preferenced person who happens to be a Bahamian (how is it aligned in your head)?

    (3) Are you LOYAL TO A FAULT (someone who always agrees with everything that everyone in the party does to anyone, everytime, because not to agree means that you are not a real FNM supporter)?

    Now about that request: HOW IN GOD’S NAME DO YOU EXPECT ME TO PROVIDE YOU THE LETTER FROM URCA ABOUT STEVE. Come on man, the request made must be measurable in “the possible” when you use it to either discount or ridicule an opposing position.

    As for your SUDDEN POLITICAL NEUTRALITY (ha, ha, ha) all I say is other people ARE READING and many of them HAVE READ your posts in the past (and they have common sense).

  4. hey bahamaspress i know you guys always up to date and is have the real inside, can you write a article about the customs raid on robin hood last night and what you guys found out?

  5. @ THINKER

    You guys sound STUPID.

    First you defend what is being done to Steve Mckinney, then you denounce THE SAME THING when you claim it was done against the FNM.

    Which is it? Do you agree with victimization or do you denounce it? Situation ethics is passe.

    AND THE FNM HAS BEEN COURTING ME TO CAMPAIGN FOR THEM – DO THEY MEAN WITH THE LIKES OF YOU – HELL NO!!

  6. BP media when is your new book going to be released ? someone told me it’s been titled ” a fiction account of the new business in the Bahamas “

  7. LIME soon come praise GOD! we gon get 4G 3G n cheap minutes n iphone n crackberry! Silly Union Terrorist gats ta go!

    • @ MICA YOU SO STUPID YOU BIG SILLY FOOL, YOU WANT CHEAP MINUTES AND IPHONE AND PEOPLE AINT GOT JOBS OR FOOD TO EAT… WE ALL TALKING BOUT SELL BTC…WE NEED TO GET NEW PLANES FOR BAHAMASAIR BECAUSE MONDAY ON THE WAY TO ABACO THE ENGINE CUT OFF AND THE SAME PLANE ON THE WAY TO PALM BEACH DID THE SAME THING AND HAD TO TURN BACK INTO MARSH HARBOUR…BAHAMASAIR NEEDS TO BE SOLD BEFORE THEY CRASH AND KILL AS ALL…

  8. LET IT BE KNOWN-Steve Mckinney is a PROPOGANDIST for the PLP! SIMPLE

    BP remember what GEMS did to LINCONLN BAIN-You did not carry that story! THEY Tried to SHUT HIM UP For DEFENDING POOR BLACK BAHAMIANS BEING Victimized by other WEALTHY, LAND LOVING, HEARTLESS BAHAMIANS.

    All this talk about BAHAMIANIZATION yet you have a BAHAMIAN business lacking COMPASSION and MERCY in such HARD ECONOMIC TIMES KNOCKING down 2 CHURCHES and POOR BAHAMIAN PEOPLE’s HOME.

    THE SAME MOUTHS CRYING BAHAMAINIZATION SAid NOTHING when a FOREIGN Man heard the cry of a woman who lost her home, and offered her FINANCIAL assistance while WEALTHY “BAHAMIANS” sat by idly and have the HEART to talk about BAHAMIANIZATIONs

    TALK IS CHEAP!
    ACTION IS REQUIRED

  9. There is none so blind as he /she who refuses to see what’s happening in this country at this time. Lawlessness abounds. When the leader has no respect for the rights and privilages of others and a blatant disrespect for law and order, then it must be crystal cleare that is time for all law abiding citizen to stand up and ensure that the leader is sent ino retirement.What the Pm is doing is wicked!! wicked!! and can be justify by any right thinking Bahamian, be they plp, fnm, ndp white or black . No matter how one wish to be cute about it, wrong is wrong.

  10. This would be a sad day for sure,but remember this matter is before the courts as of yesterday.the union file a matter to the appeal court and when matters are before the courts our laws dont allow such matters to be discuss in the open I guess,maybe this is the case am not sure, will be checking to see what this is all about.

  11. this story has some merit to it…i also heard it on another radio sataion when they did their 1pm news broadcast…so i will suggest listening to the news later on today at about 7 and 7:30 on the various t.v. stations…it is time to take oour heads out of the sand and realize papa really want the bahamas to know he controls everything

  12. If this is proven to be true, then what a sad day for the Bahamas.I smells of corruption. On one hand you have to wait on URCA for approval of the BTC sale and on the other you are ordering them on what to do? What type madness is this! I can see this turning into a legal battle which would silence Steve well beyond 2012. This some devious bullcrap!!! I supported this Gubment, but this right here, I am done!!!

  13. @ bahamianrealist & truthhurts

    You are such typical FNMs!

    First, yes, the entire post by BP is true. Not that it really matters to you whether or not it is true because you have no core values that are offended by such conduct. The “excuses” raised as justification for censorship by yourselves are almost painful to read. Sometimes silence is golden – home boys.

    You (both of you) have already decided to cast your votes in favor of the FNM, so the party is not courting you in 2012. Independents like myself will determine which party governs and at the constituency level which candidate wins. Thank God for that! Stop expending whatever intellectual capital you have left in defense of what will be roundly condemned in all quarters by tomorrow (truthhurts, I told you party loyalty is a burden).

    • @Storm, I never stated to be a member of any party. I support the truth no matter who falls victim or gains admiration from it being told.

      Produce the letter from URCA removing Steve and stating under which part of the Act that gives them such authority, then let’s talk.

      On the victimization rant that so many posts speak to on this story, I say if you let someone victimize you then that is your choice. This is a new era and no government official can censor anyone. There are always other outlets that can be utilized. If Steve can’t do his show over the airwaves, he can do it over the internet. Simple.

  14. this jungless so call pm attacking everyone who against him robin hood’ steve’ williams by john bull’ my lord this the straw that broke the camel back. he have to go like yesterday. useing custom’the police’ immagration’to turn on it’s own people this the kind of dis-respect that cost we bahamians to fight each other. this man has made up his mind to go down as the bahamas worst pm. god help us..

  15. @ Altec

    DO NOT ASSUME THAT RATIONALE THINKING IS UNDERWAY. You are going in a straight line and using sound judgment and reasoning to link thought to thought, thus your opinion that such a move would be STUPID (especially given the current environment of grave suspicion against the government). DESPERATE PEOPLE DO DESPERATE THINGS.

    Love 97FM just confirmed the story as authentic during their 1PM news report. Steve was said to be investigating the matter to determine “why”. Apparently nothing (documented) has been given to him (only to Deborah Bartlett of GEMS).

  16. Protection of Freedom of Expression ~
    The Constitution of the Bahamas – Article 23(1) & (2)

    23. (1) Except with his consent, no person shall be hindered in the enjoyment of his freedom of expression, and for the purposes of this Article the said freedom includes freedom to hold opinions, to receive and impart ideas and information without interference, and freedom from interference with his correspondence.

    Protection of freedom of expression.

    (2) Nothing contained in or done under the authority of any law shall be held to be inconsistent with or in contravention of this Article to the extent that the law in question makes provision-

    (a)which is reasonably required-

    (i)in the interests of defence, public safety, public order, public morality or public health; or

    (ii)for the purpose of protecting the rights, reputations and freedoms of other persons, preventing the disclosure of information received in confidence, maintaining the authority and independence of the courts, or regulating telephony, telegraphy, posts, wireless broadcasting, television, public exhibitions or public entertainment; or

    (b)which imposes restrictions upon persons holding office under the Crown or upon members of a disciplined force,

    and except so far as that provision or, as the case may be, the thing done under the authority thereof is shown not to be reasonably justifiable in a democratic society.

  17. URCA cant pull no one off the air just because they feel like it! And if this story is true, which i doubt, the uproar and backlash is something Papa dont need right now.

    Taking Steve off the air will only serve to bolster him and his allies, bring him more attention and influence.

    Steve has a faithful following now and if he could get them to march on Bay St, what you think they will do if Papa pull him off the air?

    The PM gains nothing by taking him off the air. Leave Steve right where he is!

  18. BP, I guess you are next.

    It appears that the truth really hurts!!!!

    I am not amazed nor shocked – hopefully the people will soon speak.

  19. BP, COULD URCA JUST PULL STEVE OFF THE AIR LIKE THAT WITHOUT SHOWING JUST CAUSE AS TO SOME RULE/LAWS THAT THEY HAVE BROKEN?

  20. Is this a communist country or what..looks like when you speak out about this man and the goverment the law comes at your door… something is wrong with that, my god people speak out about this and stop this now for the next generation..

  21. If this is true BP this is downright disgusting and who thought before this that there is nothing wrong with the sale of BTC to Cable & Wireless well here is your first clue.

    • The FNM is wrong to sell BTC to CW
      The PLP was extra wrong for they way they tried to sell BTC to Bluewater Ventures.

      You only have two choices.

      1 Frigged up wrong way of bidding, choosing and selling to a company that MIGHT have the ability to improve BTC but only IF they feel actually improving it.

      2 TRIPLE FRIGGED UP way of selling to a near non-existant company with NO HISTORY of ANYTHING and definitely NO HISTORY OF ANYTHING IN THE COMMUNICATIONS SECTOR. BTC would have essentially remained the same while various involved parties would have made a large withdrawal from the government’s bank account

      So, 1 or 2?

      No matter which one you choose 90% of the most frigged up elements of the BOTH CONTRACTS would be THE SAME.

      The office of the PM, no matter who that man is, is not intimately involved in every matter. Sometimes they just get a summary from the real people involved and are persuaded to sign a dotted line.

      The real problem stretches from the very top with the pm to the very bottom with secretaries who steal money from the school budget.

      If Hubert Ingraham dropped dead this very second it would not improve the situation. 75 percent of ALL POLITICIANS ON ALL SIDES and potentially anyone who holds a position of power in any government run institution (especially those who don’t have to be Elected) are where the majority of the problem lies.

      Red VS Yellow is like crips vs bloods.
      it’s just niggaz fighting with niggaz in the ghetto while the rich and powerful live the lives of the rich and powerful.
      We need to stop fighting amongst ourselves.

  22. Honestly Steve need to loose at lease 150 lbs seems to me a loss of talking bull crap is the lest of his worries now. STEVE go and exercise and cut down on eating so much.

    • It is a serious Bahamian problem. Too many people are overweight. With the money people would save on diabetes and high blood pressure medication and treatment they could go on a nice vacation every year. People, gluttony and slothfulness are also sins. Let’s eat healthy and let’s move!

  23. At first it was ” A MATTER OF TRUST” now it has became A MATTER OF BUST AND DISGUST. We as Bahamians should have known better than to have listened to old fashioned 19th century pro Hitler propaganda.

  24. Ingraham is a callous dictator capable of wreaking havoc on his critics. Look at what he did to the owner of Robin Hood yesterday:
    1) He threatened him.
    2) He named him at a press conference as a dissenting voice on the effects of the mismanaged road works yesterday, and attacked his character.(See the Tribune)
    3) Last night Ingraham sent his gestapo police and customs officers, (his political hatchetmen whatched from several parked cars laughing) to raid Robin Hood. (See the Nassau Guardian).

    “Bahamian Realist”, and “Truth Hurts” are truly pathetic. Ingraham is a budding Mugabe. Why would anyone defend victimization?

    It is illegal,immoral, and slimey to use the coercive power of the state to suppress dissenting voices.

    What next? Killing fields to bury his opponents?

    • “Hound from Hell”. I apologize that i don’t see things exactly the way you do. I am sorry that my life does not revolve around blaming everything that happens, that I don’t like or can’t stand, on Mr. Ingraham. This obsession that some of you people have with Hubert Alexander Ingraham, is extremely, extremely UNHEALTHY.

  25. If there is any semblance of truth in this storey, and I am a believer in the smoke-fire relationship, then this government or gubment has become tyranical and dictatorial to the detriment of the common man. In every country there is controversial media or personalities but they are never censored. Doing so would be an afront to democracy. I hope its purely smoke.

  26. This is of course not true. If Steve is taken off the air, it would only be for allowing his show to be a mouthpiece to those who seek to spread vicious propaganda. I listen to HARDCOPY every day. If you pay close attention to the show you can compare it to the weeks and days leading up to the 2007 General Election. I don’t care whose show it is, with freedom comes responsibility. You can’t just allow people to say what they like and please without have the facts and evidence to support. Like yesterday when he had Moncur on, and Moncur made charges against the Prime Minister.

    • @Truths
      You are an as@@##$$ and should desist from coming on this site as you are worst than convicted criminals.To even suggest censorship just bcos you disagree with someone is a bunch of bull$$$.Censorship allows criminals like you to take root and do plenty sh…Get lost truths as you are causing me to drool.

      • How SAD “child still in the 60’s”. You know I was responding to an article written on the Site though? I did not come to the sight to start an argument with a homosexual such as yourself.The words written are purely my opinion. You have yours. respond to the article not me. Further, your fundamentals freedom as guaranteed by the Constitution are yours, as long as you do not infringe on the rights of other individuals.

          • Ya see. You have just proven my point. Go back and read your postings. And how I know you was comin’ with those exact words? you sure you ene a child of 2K’s. Grow up please. That’s it for you now. much too much time wasted.

        • Post-fight Summary:

          Initially truthhurts appeared to be clearly more intelligent, but as the fight wore on he proved to be just as immature as Child of the 60’s

          Winner: POLITICIANS

          • @Judge Judy
            TRuthhurts appearing to be more intelligent and he calling Ingrum alter ego names lolo lolo.I want apologists like truthhurts to just read if not I will seek entertainment by calling them out.He claims to have gotten in the gutter with me therefore since that is the case I will be at Fort Charlotte to heasr what is being flushed down the toilet Saturday evening.Now everyone sees how citizens feel when Ingrum asks like a jackass when answering questions.I have decided to be decisive like Ingrum especially when dealing with incompoos like truthhurts.

  27. There BP goes again!

    Where is there any shred of fact in this story? This is no more than nonsensicle idle conjecture. Even in the remote chance that MR. Ingraham wanted to censor Steve McKinney, how would that be possible? On what grounds?

    Mr. McKinney’s show only serves to discredit his own credibility on any issue as he continues an obvious plot against Mr. Ingraham no matter how he may try to cloak it in the disguise of “building the country”. Mr. McKinney’s show will only result in FNM’s galvanizing their support of Mr. Ingraham and would make other right-thinking Bahamians dismiss all that he says even if there is something of value in what he says.

    BP, please post stories that have some kind of rational thinking behind them and not fodder that may be heard uttered by persons who just talks for those that are so gullible to consume.

  28. What !!!!!!!!! this is what I call “In the Sunshine”, The Government of “Truth” The Government of “Trust” The Government who have stated repeatable that they are for the people, Liberators is how many describe the action of our Government, if you don’t criticize them, but holy smoke if you cross Papa, Do you think he’s gone wild, is the pressure to have and do things his way getting under his skin, or can it be said that “Heroes never go easy, they find reason to make fools of themselves without any help whatsoever, this seems evident and now almost unstoppable.

    • Steve’s show is highly uninformative. I listen to his show almost daily, not to obtain information to be amused at how he spreads ignorance like butter on warm toast. He offers no real information when it comes to anything the government is doing, but offers instead trivial information and misinforamtion found on sites such as BP (love ya, but lets call a spade, A Spade). I was surprised he was still allowed, by Mr. Ingraham’s government to work for BIS. Even with the fact that he was supposed to be to work, but was out protesting (BIS Head indicated that Steve was supposed to be to work), some on these sites are calling his termination with BIS victimization. I really doubt that Mr. Ingraham gives a rat A@@, whatever Steve does.
