New York Times report on Guyana leaves a bad taste in the mouth – By Mohamed Hamaludin

New York Times report on Guyana leaves a bad taste in the mouth


Down the years, some foreign journalists have written about Guyana in the most cavalier fashion, sometimes departing from the truth in startling manner.
