We address the issues related to the media in Haiti. Are they free to perform their job whic is to get the information and bring it to the public.
It appears that PHTK or the Political Party of former President Michel Martelly does no longer believe in Non-violence protest. Their protest last Saturday is definietly a turning point as they erected barricades, burned tires and broke several car windshields during their protest march. As they reached Radio Caraibes FM, the protesters launched some slogans against journalist and radio show host Jean Monard Methelus and threw stones on the building, breaking several windows.
Organized by Fednel Monchery of repons Peyizan and Jude Lajoie, of Platfom Viktwa, the protest was due to the violation of the accord signed to continue with the process of the election.
Stanlay lucas has been all over the media during the past five years defending the government of Michel Martelly against multiple attacks. Many at one point considered him as a true friend and believer of the accomplishments of the Martelly government. However, based on information just released, Stanley Lucas was just doing a job which is ongoing propaganda for the government of Michel Martelly.
According to Valery Numa of Radio Vision 2000, Stanley receives a check of $5000 US on a regular basis just to do propaganda for the government. Initially the checks were being issued by the Haitian embassy in Washington D.C. However when Paul Altidor became the Haitian Ambassador in Washington, he had an issue with the arrangement. According to Valery Numa, Ambassador Altidor did not want to pay a salary to someone who did not work at the embassy. As solution was found where Stanley Lucas would continue to receive his salary but it will be issued instead by the Haitian embassy in New York.
The Director of Radio Vision 2000 is back in the CEP. He was designated by several organizations of Haitian media to represent them. Among the organizations involved in his selection, we find: the Assossiation National of Haitian Media (ANMH) headed by Mr. Herold Jean Francois. Don't forget that in April, 2013, Leopold Berlanger was designated by the CEPJ to be part of the CTCEP

The Miami Herald came out very strong with an editorial written against any possibility for Michel Martelly to remain in power after February 7 or to be involved in any transitional government. According to the editorial, "despite an unrelieved record of failure, Mr. Martelly suggested last week that he could prolong his tenure if no consensus for moving forward emerges". "The way forward is uncertain", according to the article. "But one thing is clear: President Michel Martelly must step down when his term expires on Feb. 7"
"Haiti's people have already paid too dearly for Mr. Martelly's disrespect for constitutional order and inept management. He never understood the notion of compromise, nor did he ever try to forge a national political consensus to make the most of the aid provided by the international community to recover from a 2010 earthquake. Whatever was good for "Sweet Micky" was good for Haiti, or so he seemed to believe.
It's official. President Michel Martelly has decided to mark the end of his government in a high note, that is typical of his character. The president has released his carnival meringue for 2016 targeting journalist Liliane Pierre-Paul of Radio Kiskeya. The National Association of Haitian Media (ANMH) has denounced the and condemned this new attempt of the President of the Republic. According to Herold Jean Francois, the President of ANMH, "Liliane Pierre-Paul is one of the characters who are a credit to our country". "The President of the Republic shall be the guarantor of social cohesion and not the instigator of denigration and public lynching of citizens."
Nou tout konnen lè New York Times jounal di yon bagay, nou tout koute epi jounal la te di anpil sou sa nou panse ki gen pou an Ayiti nan semèn oswa mwa kap vini yo.

Dapre jounal la, eleksyon nan mwa Oktòb sa te sijè falsifikasyon bilten vòt, vòt ilegal ak lòt abi ke yo te lajman denonse kòm ilejitim. Koulye a, New York Times refere li a eleksyon an kòm "yon echèk Colosal."
