This one speaks to a lack of understanding of basic journalism principles.

"Did I just hear right? Did TV6 reporter Elizabeth Williams-Allard say the name of the suspect held in connection with the murder of the German national?
Yes she did ...why? It was during the interview with Andy Johnson on Morning Edition, Andy asked what can you tell us about the suspect and Ms Williams-Allard proceeded to tell us the man's name, the business establishments he holds in Tobago and even the suspect's wife's name.
"Why oh why, does she not know this is a no no?....Ms Williams-Allard come on, you have covered court in Tobago, do you name a suspect before he/she has been charged? Steups."
