Down below is an image snapshot of the Front Page of Friday May 8th 2009 Edition of the ‘State House Newspaper’ as the News Vendors refer to the newspaper that is produced by President Ernest Koroma's Press Secretary using State House resources. This is what Government money is now used to produce!

Yes indeed, the following is the front page of a newspaper that was 100% editted by President Koroma's Press Secretary. It was 100% editted by him from his desk at State House after his Managing Editor Pasco Temple and his Editor, Tatafway Tumoe resigned in protest at his persistent personal attacks on Sylvia Blyden's person.

Personal Attacks that were so vicious that at one point President Ernest Koroma's Press Secretary published that Sylvia Blyden's great-great-grandmother was a Kept-Woman and a Whore. Yes, shocking but quite true! Everyone turned the other way as he insulted the good lady because it seemed as if he got endorsement from the President.

The President has a Press Secretary who refuses to look at the issues of National importance raised by Awareness Times but instead deflects attention of the public to what he perceives to be Sylvia Blyden's private life. When he gets dragged to Court for Libel, President Koroma gets him to be set free under nolle prosequi.
