Response To WHT Editorial
In response to 142303: WHT Editorial: Mixed messages through the vog, posted by Emmy C on Sunday, 10 June 2018, at 11:15 a.m.
I agree with most of their op-ed -except for this paragraph:
"But let’s call a spade a spade and not downplay this. Don’t blame national media — as has been done — for doom and gloom headlines that are giving the eruption an exaggerated wrap. This is a big deal and island life up and down is anything but relaxing and normal."
The national media has made this a bigger issue than it is. I cringe when these news outlets disseminate outlandish, or downright false, information about this event. This is why there is 50% drop in advance bookings to this island. This means more layoffs and business closures.
