  1. Thank you Calabsh News paper. Even though you all are humans, and has your own likes and biases, BUT You do your BEST to stay OBJECTIVE & PROFESSIONAL because that it is the CORE of JOURNALISM..You should be TRUSTED to publish & report the NEWS ACCURATELY & TRUTHFULLY. Thank you for being GOOD PUBLIC SERVANTS. GOD BLESS & PRESERVE you and your team from ALL EVIL. 🙏

  2. I wholeheartedly concur with Madam Mariama Jabbie above. Although Journalism as an art and trade is ” Literature in a hurry” Journalist should strive to report the news and not invent the news. Unfortunately, most of the online newspapers have become commentators instead if reporting the news. Many a time when one visits a news portal you read report of things that you are directly privy to, and you are surprised as to how distorted the story was reported. When such become monotonous, you will come to suspect that the journalist or paper has no interest in reporting the fact but rather making the story to fit his narrative and intention. This has robbed most of us from getting the fact. Additional it has helped in fostering a state of fear, and misinformation, and the journalist is happy making the story and not reporting the story. Once again thank you virus much Calabash.
