‘Equal Time’ not a smear campaign

by | Jun 9, 2014

NEWS GRAPHIC 3E-mails apparently written by United National Congress strategy advisers and supporters in the media have been leaked to People’s National Movement (PNM) vice chairman Camille Robinson-Regis.

She read them before a packed PNM public meeting in the Croisee, San Juan on Thursday night.

One e-mail exchange between radio talk show host and UNC activist Phillip Alexander and UNC deputy leader Dr Roodal Moonilal appears to show the media personality pitching a political television chat show.

The show called Equal Time was allegedly proposed by Alexander, and would be shown at prime time on the state-owned CNMG television channel C News.

It would be a platform from which beleaguered or disgraced government ministers could defend themselves.

The second e-mail, sent from an address apparently belonging to Rodney Charles, T&T’s UN ambassador, who will work for the UNC as general election campaign manager in 2015. It was sent to an elite list of UNC strategists, supporters and media associates.

It allegedly called for a full-scale sustained attack on PNM leader Dr Keith Rowley designed to provoke him to anger, undermine his personal character and drag down his poll ratings.

However Mr. Phillip has stated that he is not guilty of a smear campaign against the People’s National Movement.

Mr Alexander also addressed allegations from PNM PRO Farris Al Rawi that he was involved in the recent racist placard fiasco.
