Exactly one week ago, on Thursday June 21st 2012, Global Times had a front page headline saying “We Agree with Sylvia Blyden”. This was with reference to Blyden's position on the Biriwa violence earlier this month.
Now, we live in a dynamic world where things change. The only thing constant is God. Of course, STUPID ones find it hard to change but most people change depending on circumstances arising.
In field of journalism, the good journalists raise issues which societies need awareness on regardless of who is friend or foe. Views of a journalist can coincide with an avowed enemy or it can collide against views of pals. It is all a part of service to humanity in the noble profession of journalism. This is why there will be times when Sylvia Blyden will share same views as Global Times or NEWSTIMEAFRICA; both notorious as her character assassins.
It does not mean all the nasty things and malicious lies which have been stated of Blyden by them are now suddenly true simply because they share the same views on one national issue.
