Prominent Journalist Julian Rogers says recipient of honorary doctorate should not be called Doctor.
Prominent Caribbean Journalist Julian Rogers states the conferring of honorary Doctorates does not indicate that one has completed a field of study that qualifies for a PhD. He went on to say it is unfair to the public and to the honoree to refer to them as a Doctor unless circumstances indicate otherwise.
While Rogers believes that these decisions are often made by editors and managers of media outlets, and he called for Political leaders to put an end to the custom of referring to themselves as Doctors, when in reality the title is honorary.
