My thoughts are that Mr. McComie needs to be reminded that he is a former journalist and it is a shame that someone who has worked in media for so long can have such a rude attitude towards his former colleagues. He is treating them like if they are little children in a pre-school. No snacks if they do not "Behave"? What is he going to do next? Give them licks?

During the last exchange, he said first that the media could ask any questions they would like and is up to the ministers to answer but then he seems to think he is the god that decides what constitutes a "Silly" Question.

Journalists are there to ask ANY questions, including the hard ones that he seems to have a problem with. They are not there to ask the questions that are convenient to the government in place. That's absolutely ridiculous.

Is this man going to apologize to the media? I cannot believe that someone who holds a position such as the Director of Communications at the office of the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago would have such an impolite, presumptuous, unpleasant and impudent attitude.

The post cabinet conference seemed to be held at a different location and with a new moderator. Additionally the press didn't seem to have many questions. lol

So what happened to Dennis McComie, did he get a new assignment or just staying away from anything to do with the media and the post cabinet conferences?

When the Office of the Prime Minister referred to those statements as "Unfortunate, offensive and regrettable", Mc Commie apologized to the media and the Media Association of T&T. He also added:

Attached Image QUOTE
"I should further like to apologise to the Prime Minister and the members of Cabinet for monopolising time that could have been better used at the Post Cabinet News Briefing. I regret the incident and confirm that I meant no disrespect to anyone.

With regard to the "no food" statement, it was done in jest while I interacted with media colleagues after the conclusion of the Post-Cabinet News Conference. I sincerely regret the incident. Source 2
