On Tribune Opinion Piece: “Mitchell’s Shame” 
For Immediate Release
18 November
Today I have been shown another piece written in The Tribune under the headline “Mitchell’s Shame”, in which statements are continuing to be attributed to me, statements which I have never said.
The only shame is the lying drivel contained within the article. The writer has no clue what he or she is talking about. They are totally lost in space.
Again for the record, I have not made any comments about the decision involving Bahamians who have petitioned the Inter American Commission on Human Rights claiming that their lives were in danger.
At the very least, The Tribune and other media houses have an obligation to provide accurate reporting and not continue to parrot false narrative propaganda.
Try accuracy. It may set you free.
