During this edition of MaritimeTV's Mondays with Maitland, Clay Maitland along with special guest, Carleen Lyden-Kluss, rebut the New York Times' recent article that misrepresents the maritime industry. Clay and Carleen make the case that the article, Stowaways and Crimes Aboard a Scofflaw Ship by Ian Urbina, the first in a series entitled "The Outlaw Ocean", is an example of attack journalism that inaccurately portrays the safest industry transportation sector in the world. In addition, they maintain that erroneous media reports about the maritime industry need to be vigorously and credibly rebutted to eliminate knee-jerk reaction that could result in unnecessary new regulations for an industry that is already over-regulated.
MaritimeTV's Mondays with Maitland program series addresses issues of the day throughout the international maritime industry.
Clay Maitland is Managing Partner, International Registries, Inc., and Chairman of the Merchant Marine Policy Coalition (MMPC).
Carleen Lyden-Kluss is Executive Director of the North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA).
