Patricia Bergwijn 30th August 16th August The Catholic Dominican Friars would happily go the extra mile to annoy or cross the Dutch Protestant Colonial Administration in every way they could, but their most important task was to monitor and write about every move the colonial rulers made. According to Michael Voges, Managing Director, that is still the core business of the Amigoe newspaper.

It is our duty to get the answers to questions everybody has, but no one dares to ask. More than a Newspaper Originally a weekly, the Amigoe became a daily newspaper issued by the Catholic Church in , and about 36 years ago, the Catholic journal was bought by a group of seven people.

It became an independent, daily, afternoon newspaper taken over by the Voges family in The Publishing Company Amigoe, Inc. Challenging Times Being a newspaper in the digital and social media era is not easy. Lots of newspapers all over the world are struggling, and the Amigoe is no exception.

Theft in the broadest sense seems to be one of the biggest challenges; radio stations reading Amigoe articles out loud, companies spreading the PDF-file of the paper and all kinds of collections of cuttings on the internet. The irony of this kind of piracy is that it clearly demonstrates the widely appreciated quality of the Amigoe throughout the Caribbean. But quality comes with a price, so to make it harder to access, the publisher changed its website, the format, and adjusted the firewall.

According to Managing Director Voges, another challenge in regard to social media is the double standard that people apply. A newspaper simply cannot. Therefore, Amigoe checks and double checks and does research before publishing their news. By delivering high quality news through research, the newspaper wants to distinguish itself from other newspapers in the region.

But this strategy to avoid the mere editing of press releases and just publishing everything is not without sacrifices or consequences.

As a result, the Amigoe has had to downsize the paper to twenty or sixteen pages. In the opinion of the publisher, the majority of people, boards, shareholders and stakeholders underestimate the pressure on production and the time it takes to do research. In short, the Amigoe chose quality over mass production and quantity, even if that meant reducing the pages of their journal and even if they might have given their readers the impression things were not going so well.

Bring it on Last, but not least, the Managing Director worries over the latest trend of passivity, if not to say the indifference, of the societies on the Caribbean islands and the lack of accountability.

At times, it makes the tone of the newspaper sarcastic, because what is the use of being a watchdog if hardly anybody seems to really care? He wonders why people do not blame the media for not doing their job and why people do not complain about politicians who are not acting ethically.

According to the newspaper boss, it is the general lack of responsibility, the culture of naming and shaming others, the almost seemingly apathetic state of mind that needs to change.

In his opinion, politicians are just a reflection of our society. Responsibility The latter is exactly what motivates Michael Voges, an entrepreneur at heart. By being part of the solution, taking responsibility, offering a platform of change, asking the questions nobody dares to ask and thus setting the example for the whole of the Dutch Caribbean society, the publisher is still acting upon and holding true to its year old mission.

Therefore, it is a more reliable and determined cornerstone of society, present and future, than one can hardly hope for. Categories Aruba Bonaire Curacao St. Leave this field empty. Related articles.
