The Puerto Rico Tourism Company has claimed in a recent media release the article ( ) does depict the state Puerto Rico tourism is currently under. eTN gave the Puerto Rico Tourism Company the opportunity to post a rebuttal in the form of a press release on eTurboNews entitled Getting Out the Good News on Puerto Rico ( ).

In response, eTN publisher Thomas Steinmetz has said: “eTurboNews adheres to high standard of reporting and enforces a 100 percent neutrality policy on issues covered. The article in question is not an opinion, but rather a carefully and thoroughly researched article.”
Mr. Steinmetz added, “eTN simply stated facts. In the event that certain claims are proven to be inaccurate, eTN does and have in the past issued a retraction.”

According to Mr. Steinmetz, Dr. Elinor Garely did extensive research before publishing the final copy of the article. “We do understand some of the financial data changed after this research was completed. eTN is working on a follow-up article to reflect these changes,” he added. “eTN stands by the facts presented in our article at this time, except for changes in the financial data.”
