Death by 1001 cuts

NEWS FLASH NEWS FLASH NEWS FLASH

Papua News Guinea won the Prince Albert Foundation/UNCA global prize for news coverage of climate change, bronze award.
The United Nations Correspondents Association (UNCA) was founded in 1948 when the UN began to meet regularly in New York.
Its over 200 members come from more than 50 countries and the purpose of the awards is to recognise and encourage excellence in reporting on the UN’s worldwide activities.
The award was presented by UN secretary-general Ban Ki-Moon, in at a New York ceremony.
The awards were open to journalists anywhere in the world for their work in print, Internet, radio or TV.
Coverage of PNG's carbon and enviro woes led to also winning the 2009 Asia-Pacific award for environmental journalism.

But Due to unpopular demand this is the last post. Sadly Papua News Guinea is to die a very premature death due to AAP concerns the 30 per day who daily read it are undermining the nature of their news service. That and they may be liable for some law suit due to the author's unchecked behaviour. It was but brief. Adieu all ye PNG fateful.

  8. Ilya, can you not say... add comments to a blog created by say... Mr PNG?

    Along the lines of when the sports journo once asked Jason "Dizzy" Gillespie about the standard of the pitch and knowing that he was under contract he said "You know I cannot say anything, but a mate of mine phoned me up after the match and said 'jeez, that's a shit pitch out there'"!
