President, Anthony Carmona

The Media Association of Trinidad and Tobago is today lashing back at this country’s President, Anthony Carmona, arguing that he

was wrong to use his Republic Day message on Saturday to deflect legitimate questions raised in the media about the use of public

funds by the President’s house.

MATT, in a statement issued, says the President, rather than demonstrate his commitment to transparency and accountability, has

chosen to smear the work of journalists, seeking to hold public officials to account.

MATT is now saying that the digital information age is characterized by diverse voices expressing opinions on myriad platforms that

communicate quickly to large audiences.
