Free Haiti fingers three US reporters — Carol J. Williams, Edward M. Gomez and Kathie Klarreich — who appear to be “spinning the facts” on the current situation in Haiti, and posts some dramatic photos of protesters swarming the pool at the Hotel Montana, where the members of the CEP (Provisional Electoral Council), the media and others have been headquartered during the election period. According to Baturrico (ES), South African Bishop Desmond Tutu, who is also lodged at the Montana, addressed the protesters from the balcony of his hotel room, calling for calm.
