Hi, we are the Plantain. Our greatest responsibility is to serve our Tropical Community. We are extremely proud of the quality, balanced journalism that the Plantain produces.
But we’re concerned about the troubling trend of irresponsible, one-sided news stories plaguing our country. The sharing of biased and false news has become all too common on social media.
More alarming, some media outlets publish these same fake stories… stories that just aren’t true, without checking facts first.
Unfortunately, some members of the media use their platforms to push their own personal bias and agenda to control ‘exactly what people think’
>…This is extremely dangerous to a democracy.
At The Plantain, it’s our responsibility to pursue and report the truth. We understand truth is neither politically ‘left nor right.’ Our commitment to factual reporting is the foundation of our credibility, now more than ever.
But we are human and sometimes our reporting might fall short. If you believe our coverage is unfair please reach out to us by going to your email and messaging [email protected] We value your comments. We will respond back to you.
We work very hard to seek the truth and strive to be fair, balanced and factual…
We consider it our honor, our privilege to responsibly deliver the news every day.
