The media was not invited to Monday’s swearing in ceremony at Government House.
There has been a shift in operations, particularly with The last two swearing in ceremonies.
During the previous ceremony, Premier Burt allowed questions, despite the Department of Communication ( DCI ) personal stating that there would be no questions from the media, which resulted in a heated exchange between TNN’s  Trevor Lindsay and DCI individual, in the end the Premier and a reporter from the Royal Gazette live on air displayed a confrontational exchange of words.
For Monday’s ceremony, a DCI personnel indicated to TNN that no media would be allowed inside. Government House then disputed these claim that they never made such a statement, and it was later explained that DCI personal CITV would cover the official ceremony and a press conference was held the next day, at the Cabinet office, for the Premier and new ministers to update the public and the media.
Are we seeing a shift in the way Bermudian media is being controlled, as the media have never not been invited to a swearing in ceremony at Government House, TNN awaits a response to these latest developments.
