I also have a constantly updated blog at http://acave5.blogspot.com
In which media do you presently work or have you worked?

Please list a web address where where one can view an example of your work.
What is "news"?
News is information a viewer wants to read.
To you, what is objectivity?
Objectivity is how you view news from a different perspective.
What is the best headline you have ever read?
There are too many to choose from but a recent one would include, "It's all about the U."
What headline would you like to see printed one day in the newspaper?
"Haiti is the most prosperous country in Caribbean"
Which paper do you buy on Sundays? Where do you read it?

Does freedom of expression end where the editorial line begins?
No, freedom of expression extends where the editorial line begins.
Do you feel that analytical and investigative journalism is being lost?
Yes, somewhat, but the youth of journalism is still alive and well.
With a camera on every mobile phone, is every citizen becoming a correspondent?
Yes, every citizen has that opportunity. Whether they want to or not is up to the individual.

To put it simply, celebrity "mishaps."
What is your position regarding the right to privacy of famous people?
I am neutral on this issue.

Please list well-known people you have interviewed.
Would you say the journalism blog is revolutionizing the profession?
Yes, to some extent.
