We the innocent, led by the unknown, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful!
We have done so much with so little, so we are now qualified to do anything with nothing!

Who or what is the Guyana Media Proprietors Association (GMPA)
Todd A Morgan: I have a question: Who or what is the Guyana Media Proprietors Association (GMPA)? I mean all of a sudden, this body (comprising whom, I do not know) jumps up and makes pronouncements. This has to provoke one of the biggest ‘daws’ indeed. According to this body, the process recently used to allocate radio licenses is ‘unworkable’, because (according to the body) there are questions regarding the absence of transparency. So while it is grateful for the act, and now has a deep sense of hopefulness, there was also a feeling of ‘great ambivalence, apprehension, and major dissatisfaction’. As regards to the feelings of ‘great ambivalence, apprehension, and major dissatisfaction’, I ask among whom? And for what reasons? Now, it is very obvious that this GMPA is playing a ‘con’ game. Look at subtlety here. It throws a word of commendation in order to ingratiate its way and get its objectives. It talks about hopefulness etc, yet it is selective on whose behalf it is ‘mouthing off’. I mean where was this GMPA? So my question still looms large. Who or what is the GMPA? For whom is it speaking? Also, to whom? Does it have legitimacy? Does it have moral rectitude?
