NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The free press debate continues prompted by Prime Minister Philip Davis’ recent comments about media reports on the local crime situation.

The PM hinting earlier this week that continuous headlines promoting bad news gives the country a bad look and suggested local media reports are to blame for bad international headlines. But these resident say, print the headlines.

For others, while crime reporting is important, a healthier balance is needed.

Countries such as The United States and Canada issued travel advisories for The Bahamas. Something the Prime Minister suggests may be tied to constant crime headlines which he argued also hurts tourism.
