The issue is as a “news” agency accuracy of fact is paramount and this requires either inherent knowledge of the Islands that make up the Country or at least the ability to quickly consult and/or research, with correction in this latest misreporting only occurring after the glaringly obvious to most error was immediately pointed out.
